I am pretty sure I bricked my access point somehow installing openwrt.
I followed the instructions on the wiki: https://openwrt.org/toh/ubiquiti/unifi_6_lr#installation
However, I probably installed the wrong image namely "openwrt-21.02.1-mediatek-mt7622-ubnt_unifi-6-lr-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin"
Instead of the one linked in the install guide: "openwrt-mediatek-mt7622-ubnt_unifi-6-lr-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin"
Now the device will give a white light booting for a bit then it blinks one and stays off.
I tried tftp recovery, as per: https://help.ui.com/hc/en-us/articles/204910124-UniFi-TFTP-Recovery-for-Bricked-Access-Points
Sadly, while the access point does show the blinking pattern indicating it's in TFTP mode, and my ip is set correctly (I tried this on 3 systems, even on windows) the connection will always time out.
Looking at it, there are 3 possibilities.
1: I am an idiot, and set things up incorrectly with TFTP, I assume setting your own ip to 192.168.1.25, the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 and the default gateway to 192.168.1.20 is still correct. (I even disabled ipv6 for good measure)
2: my device is too far gone for even TFTP recovery (I don't know how likely it is?)
3: the network switch I use for POE ( tp-link TL-SG108PE) is somehow preventing TFTP from working properly. If that's the case, Are there any settings on a managed switch that could make things work (I have messed around a bit to no avail, but my knowledge is limited on the subject). I can also buy a PoE injector but if the switch is unlikely to cause a problem here, I'd rather not needlessly waste money on it.
Any help / advice would be much appreciated.
