Hello. I have a Linksys WRT54G V8 router and I installed this DD-WRT third party firmware on it but now I want to go back to the stock firmware from linksys. I think i've tried mainly everything; resetting it, uploading the linksys firmware, clearing nvram, TFTP'ing to the router... I cant figure out how I can get that original stock firmware back on there version 8.

Please help!

Most firmware updates (and especially those not supplied by the manufacturer) cannot be removed to revert back to the previous version.
Even the manufacturers explicitly state that fact on their download pages. The link you were given does not cover removing a firmware update -- most likely because it can't be done. It covers methods of recovering from a bad or incomplete firmware updating process -- which is not the same thing.
