Archer A6v3 bricked

I was installing the latest snapshot via attended sysupgrades when the router rebooted but bricked itself.
The power light is on and it is not detected by my pc when plugges into the lan port.
What went wrong and what can I do now?


So no way to solve without opening the case?

Doesn't appear to be, no.

If you can get into failsafe, you might not need to open it.

The router isn't detected at all.

If it isn't detected at all, then the bootloader is probably overwritten somehow, which shouldn't happen at all unless something went wrong during flashing or firmware started writing from address zero.

You can try opening the case and connect by serial and see if anything shows up on display. If serial works, then you could recover it.
