Help please! 110$ re450 bricked!


The reset button is not doing anything, all leds still flashing intermittently.

I followed exactly the instructions on to reflash the original firmware given here:

This is what I did after sshing into the router:

cd /tmp
mtd -r write /tmp/original_firmware.bin firmware

Is there any hope of recovery or is it paperweighted?


Just thought I will provide a little more info: Even when I connect wire ethernet to the router, the connection keeps going on and off. Probably a bad sign. Not sure.

All help appreciated. Worst case scenario I'll try and return to Amazon.
