Hello all my adventure started in another thread but I decided to make a new one for reference.
So I own a TP-Link 265 HD (glorified EAP245 v3 with tweaked tplink firmware to allow more clients)Everything was working great with the OpenWRT 245 firmware. I had a play with one of the online image builders trying to strip down packages and seem to have bricked the device.
So I've soldered a header on and linked the left two pads inside the white box on the picture below not sure if I need to pull down to gnd (link the right two pads)
anyway using putty at the settings described on the eap245 wiki and don't seem to be able to make a connection on the two left most pins the wiki spoke of a pin out on the back of the board but I don't seem to be able to find it anyone have any ideas?
Ok I really need to learn to read better but the wiki could do with some updating and clearer wording for idiots like myself.
So I was missing the bridge on r225 which was under the one IC cover on the rear, managed to get into the router via serial using putty now I need to set up tftp(no idea what I'm doing). will update photos and try get some better images incase someone wants to update the wiki.
So back at it I made the mistake of doing a ram test when looking through the serial options it's been testing probably an hour or so and I'm at 28mb of 128 and too scared to stop it while waiting I got a message from a developer about this.
Not even sure what to do with this info but I don't feel like copy and paste is the right choice anyone can dull it down for me where would I even find the correct hex code to replace 0x8 on the above.
Currently your u-boot ath> prompt is riddled with commands probably by copy paste mistake it should just say ath> after CTRL-B.
Or your serial output TX is poisining your RX serial input traffic (if you didn't copy paste it yourself). Are your solderings clean as in no electric shorts, or try different ttl reader or software client/setting???
