    Well, I did something really stupid today, loaded the wrong firmware "v4.70.6_Hyperwrt-2.1b1-(Thibor)" (wrt54gs) on my WRT54G.

    Now I would like to get back to the proper firmware (tried the original "WRT54GV4.0_4.20.7_US_code.bin" and "HyperWRT's HyperWRT_2.1b1_G.bin" for my router, but I can't load anything. All I get is "Wrong Code Pattern" when I'm using TFTP.

    Is there ANY WAY to resolve this? Maybe flush the current .bin file from the router???

    The link doesn't work?

    I loaded an older version of Thibor's HyperWRT on my WRT54G and then edited the original "WRT54GV4.0_4.20.7_US_code.bin" with notepad. I renamed the first word in the .bin file "W54G" to "W54S" and was able to upload the file to my WRT54G using TFTP.

    But it still says I'm using "v4.70.6_Hyperwrt-2.1b1-(Thibor)" firmware.

    Anymore suggestions?

    pogiako, that's a big drive with lots of files. Can you be more specific and say which file/s to look at?
