ASUS RT-AX53U - Installation failed?

Hi,
I flashed my router with the instructions given at https://openwrt.org/toh/asus/rt-ax53u ( mtd-write ).
But after reboot nothing have changed. i only have the asus webinterface like before.

If I'm not mistaken you have two firmware partitions on that router (check yourself).
You have to flash the proper partition to boot into wrt.

Thanks for response.
Sorry im new to this.
I found the actual partition table by cat /proc/mtd.

mtd0: 08000000 00020000 "mtk-nand"
mtd1: 000e0000 00020000 "Bootloader"
mtd2: 00100000 00020000 "nvram"
mtd3: 00100000 00020000 "Factory"
mtd4: 00100000 00020000 "Factory2"
mtd5: 03200000 00020000 "Kernel"
mtd6: 003c0000 00020000 "linux"
mtd7: 02e508ec 00020000 "rootfs"
mtd8: 03200000 00020000 "Kernel2"
mtd9: 01020000 00020000 "jffs2"

In the wiki it says "Flash the image to Kernel partition" should i flash it to kernel2?

I'd try the TFTP, and let uboot decide where to write the image.

I used the Asus firmware restoration tool, to flash initramfs-kernel.bin.
After that i flashed the squashfs-sysupgrade.bin.
Now its working.
