Downloaded the firmware and upgrading with Merlin but the firmware stays on the stock firmware after installation and it doesn't change to Merlin. Any ideas?

Which router are you trying to upgrade, which firmware are you trying to upgrade, have you checked the SHA256 hash so you can say for sure you didn't download a corrupt file? Do you get any errors? Please provide some more info (like put your router model and your firmware version in your signature) otherwise no one will be able to help you.

You're not alone.

I had to use Recovery mode and a CLI TFTP program to update the firmware.

You might try the same.

I had the same problem on my RT-AC86U. I had to flash the latest firmware 3 times for it to finally work. The last time before I flashed I rebooted the router then flashed and then the latest Merlin firmware finally took.
