Is there a way to unbrick an r8000?

hook up your serial cable.

setup a tftp server and point to the directory where you have the image for the r8000

open putty. select "serial" make sure you have the right com port and baud rate(115200)

turn on router. interrupt the bootup when prompted, if memory serves me correct, it is ctrl c.

type "tftpd" into the putty window.

use the tftp server and "put" the image file.
