will try to get them as soon as I free my serial adapter.
Check the host address
solved boot loop issue using this method. I used WInscp for offline install.
@frollic, any rationale for this behaviour? Previously, it was working fine via the GUI method. Not this time.
Good to know. I'll give a try on the 3700v4 when I can. Thanks for solving.
Updating to 23.05 is still an issue
Your device has had serious problems also earlier, so I wonder if the hardware (especially flash) is ok.
Your earlier survival story:
It might be that there is something wrong, e.g. a bad flash block at a place that strategically causes problems for a firmware/kernel of certain size. E.g. a bad block just where the UBI should start, or somethings similar.
Reference to your log:

Any solution to bad block? Custom built? e.g. removing some DNS stuff, bcz I don't use this as a router.
Where are you Guy's getting the upgrade from? https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/ only goes as far as 22.03.05
Right. I'm only willing to test from 23.05.0-rc1 so I'll wait. Thanks
A few days ago I compared the 3700v4 to the 4300v2 for the possibility of similar flash issue. I was wrong, the 3700v4 is similar to the 4300v1. Hardware is different in the 4300v2.
I was about to recover a 3700v4 when I checked the hardware specs of all these devices and noticed my error. So the 3700v4 can't help as comparison.

Looks like the definition/settings for the system console is initially right, but then gets changed wrongly...

I have never heard about 1.5 Mbit serial connection.,.
Flashed 23.05 via nmrp
Looks suspicious (maybe regarding the network cables etc.)
even though usually it is 1000Mbps
23.05 serial output.
upgrade mode was flashing. @hnyman what does flashing upgrade mode means?
TFTP flashed 23.05
green power led is flashing
