FS#3629 - Not able to Flash Current OpenWRT 19.07.7 on Archer A7 v5

I have a TP-Link Archer A7 v5. I already had OpenWrt installed on it, but for testing a flashed back the Stock Firmware [1.1.0 Build 20201120 rel.50399(4555)]

After that i was not able to Flash the OpenWrt Firmware. I Have a serial console with the following output:

1.1.0 Build 20201120 rel.50399

check firmware error!
[NM_Error](nvrammanager_verifyFirmware) 00476: upgradeFirmware failed

Is this maby because of the Version that is named in the Firmware and can this be fixed?

Thank you for your work!

This patch solves the issue.

If we have a look to the Archer C7 Dokumentation it tells us, that no downgrade is possible from the current firmware - The same appears on the Archer A7, but they don't mention it with the Firmware Version.
So it should be that you are not able to install OpenWrt on Archer C7 v5 with the current Firmware (1.1). Maybe this needs to be fixed according to my patch
