R8000 with R7000 firmware

hi, i accidentally updated my r8000 with r7000 firmware while returning from tomato to stock, LAN1 and WAN ports are inter-changed as per the physicaly present in r7000 and i am getting a valid id when connecting to lan to router and the router gateway is also accessable, but the wifi is not working and the router is also not accepting any firmware either openwrt, ddwrt, tomato, stock of any model i.e r7000 or r8000
i tried tftp, putty and nwrpflash but no success, 
how strange i can browse internet @ 1gbps using pppoe with the same router 

Model: R8000|Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Smart WIFI Router
