Just a little FYI: hotlyq's solution works just fine, but the firmware file needs to be name exactly as it is downloaded. I downloaded both OSv220.127.116.11 and OSv18.104.22.168 firmwares to the same folder on my PC. Obviously enough I had to give them different names on the disk, I tried both and neither worked. It turns out the recovery system will not use any firmware unless it is named "firmware_a605f.aos". So if you're like me, copy the firmware over to the root of the USB-drive and then rename to firmware_a605f.aos.
