Debrick tp-link RE650 v2

So I managed to brick my tp-link re650 v2.

As soon as I plug it it it flashes 5sec blue and then cycles, 1sec red 2sec blue. The Ethernet port does not come up.

The usual tp-link trick of „press reset while power on“ does not change anything.

Has anyone experienced similar problems?
Is there a special trick with this drive to get it to rescue mode?

Sorry to read about your RE650. Serial and JTAG connectivity are options. Please see for details.

Good luck.


The same happened to me on my RE650 v1.

Here is how I solved it:

I would expect same procedure for v2, just with different soldering points on the PCB as illustrated on the v2 device page:
