Hello can you help me with wr740n full dump, my router is bricked and i need to fix with ch340 programmer sorry for category i am new o this site :slight_smile:
Thank you!

you do not need to dump firmware. try to failsafe and resolve it:
-go to failsafe
-use putty to telnet ssh to router
-run mount_root, firstboot.

hello :slight_smile: sorry but not working, this router is hardbricked and failsafe mode or ssh/scp/telnet acces not work, bootloader is corrupted, i need to flash with full dump from another working router the same model any ideas?
thank you

Do not think your bootloadder corrupt.

  • pull out off your power.
  • set PC
  • press reset button while put your power cord about 10 seconds then release it.
  • run CMD in your pc by ping, when it respone it means your router go failsafe.

What have you done with your flash / bl?

If it's only u-boot, you could build it youself from gpl sources and write mac address manually at address 0x1fc00

If it not works give me your MAC, pin. May be take your decal photo I will do your firmware

hello the bootloader (u-boot) is corrupted after install experimental ddwrt firmware now the router is bricked only power led is on and router not responding anymore from reset button or 30/30/30 reset!
u-boot is broke!

You could also try u-boot_mod from @pepe2k.
The image for WR740N V4 should also work... img git but in this image there is no mac and wps pin... probably this isn´t currupted.

the mac adress is 30:B5:C2:42:BE:34

thanks a lot but I wanted this router to have everything exactly as it was from the factory I want to get back to what it was, its u-boot original and unchanged if the only way is to rewrite this u-boot stock the router will work normally I looked a little on the openwrt forum someone was just like me and u-boot was to blame

What is your pin number?
Firmware works in openwrt.
You can go back to stock firmware

What do you mean with that? The u-boot_mod would be much better than the stock one! You could upgrade / flash fw with a web interface, stock images does work, oc is possible and and and...

I'm pretty sure the modified u-boot is better than the stock but I wanted to get back to what he had before, hope not to be annoyed that I said that I like things as they come from the factory :slight_smile: :wink:

:sweat_smile: I don´t like the most things as they came from factory

ok not problem :grinning: my email:

I know what it's like, it does not always go out as well as it should with the original stuff that's what we're advancing and looking to do the best with a modified and u-boot firmware, that's why Openwrt Lede DD-WRT u- boot mod is good! :slight_smile:

i have been send you firmware

You could overwrite the included bootloader of oem images with the provided one from @dktn with dd:

dd if=u-boot.bin of=stock_fw_boot.bin conv=notrunc

Note: Only the stock fw´s with the word boot in his name did include the bootloader with 128k size.
