Installing OpenWrt on TP-link TL-WR902AC Made it Corrupt


I went into the Table of Hardware for Firmware downloads and I used the Install url to downloaded OpenWrt.

I then went into the admin console and selected the upgrade option.

I then selected the downloaded file and it seemed to be uploading it but then it told me that the file was invalid format.

I thought Tham maybe I had downloaded the wrong file so I downloaded the file from the Upgrade url and that installed but when the router went to restart it flashes one light then all of them and repeats this sequence but never restarts.

Can any advise me how to fix this please?


Assuming it's a v3, the only possible way to install it is via TFTP recovery, according to the Wiki.
