Netgear R8000 - Back from Tomato to Netgear Genie

I want to revert to Netgear Genie after flashing to Tomato-R8000-ARM--140-AIO-64K. In Shibby's tutorial, it asks for a special image file (Model)-back-to-ofw.trx.  However, it cannot find the file named r8000-back to-ofw.trx, I can only locate the one for r7000-back to-ofw.trx

 

Does anybody know where to find or should I use just the one for r7000 ?

Any help is very appreciated.

Thanks, it looks like it is just reverting to an older version R8000 firmware. The R7000 video, which emphasis to use a different file,  is pretty confusing.

A quick search suggests that it's probably in this folder.

Actually, we need to flash it to DD-WRT first by using the first file dd-wrt-.v24-K3_AC_ARM_R8000.bin. From DD-WRT we can revert to Genie.
