I crashed my EX3700 that's running OpenWrt by --force-depends installing ebtables. The kernel version I have installed is the same number in the dependency except it had a dash at the end and some the letters or words. I figured that just meant it was a custom build and since the actual version number was the same that it would be OK to force install the package. As soon as it finished installing the package, the device rebooted and had a solid red light. It went into an endless bootloop after that.
I pressed a button repeatedly until the green light started flashing rapidly, then I held the factory reset button for 10 seconds and released it. The green light kept flashing rapidly and at the same speed as when it entered "fail safe" mode. Is the light supposed to change color or is the light supposed to blink at a different speed when it starts a "factory reset"? I left it alone for about 5 minutes and it still appeared to be in "fail safe" mode with the green light flashing rapidly.
I power cycled the device and repeated the process except this time I held the factory reset button for thirty seconds after it entered "fail safe" mode. The light is still green and blinking rapidly like it's in "fail safe" mode. Am I doing this correctly to initiate a factory reset?
