Prompt for Wrong Firmware file

IDEA

It will be helpful if there will be a prompt if ever a user is trying to load a firmware designed for hardware version 1 to a hardware version 2.

If you try to load firmware for a different HW version it will give you an error saying that the upgrade failed. It will not specify the reason (wrong version) but that should be enough to warn the user that the file being loaded is incorrect.

There are cases that the process will go through but the firmware stays the same since it was the wrong file, I just forgot what model was that.

I agree. A user bricked his router because he loaded the wrong firmware. The firmware process completed even with an incompatible firmware version. There were no error messages.
