Help Downgrading RouterOS / Firmware

Sat Oct 10, 2020 7:18 pm

Hi guys,

I am currently running 4.48beta40 and i would like to downgrade to 6.46.7

Reason i want to do this is i rebooted the router, and for some reason nearly all devices are now having trouble getting access to internet, with one getting some random IP address from somewhere!

I am following this guide to the letter...

https://systemzone.net/how-to-properly- ... -firmware/

but, the router still won't downgrade and stays with 6.48.

Can anyone help out?

Cheers.

That is the proper procedure i.e upload to Files and downgrade from Packages. If you are sure you uploaded the correct file and that it is not corrupted, then Netinstall.

Thanks.

I have tried NETInstall, and for some reason wont load the package int the window for uploading.

I have tried drag and drop from the desktop where the package is located, but if i browse for the file, it doesnt even show up in the Desktop directory?

NPK file needs to be on the same directory that your NetInstall executable file.

You may change the upgrade channel to "long-term" in System -> Packages -> Check for Updates and hit "Download & Install"
