FS#3017 - Error updating to TP-LINK TL-WR842ND firmware to 19.07.2

I’m receiving the error “The uploaded image file does not contain a supported format. Make sure that you choose the generic image format for your platform.” when trying to update my router TP-Link TL-WR842N/ND v1 from version 18.06.2 to version 19.07.2

Device problem occurs on

Model: TP-Link TL-WR842N/ND v1
Architecture: Atheros AR7241 rev 1

Software versions of OpenWrt/LEDE release, packages, etc.

Firmware Version: OpenWrt 18.06.2 r7676-cddd7b4c77 / LuCI openwrt-18.06 branch (git-19.020.41695-6f6641d)
Kernel Version: 4.9.152

Steps to reproduce

I followed steps described on the page https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/installation/ar71xx.to.ath79 but on step 4 I received the error “The uploaded image file does not contain a supported format. Make sure that you choose the generic image format for your platform.“. I’m using LuCI to update.

Missing SUPPORTED_DEVICES.

I've pushed a fix to master here and will backport it end of the week:

https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/commit/522f6b7eee479768dd7851e83c4530c3329b9f53

This should be included in 19.07.3 then, unless you want to build yourself earlier.

(This just adds the support information. If you are really sure you are using the correct image, just force-flash the 19.07.2 image. My patch won't change anything despite that board string.)
