I use re450 as AP
i installed lede for security in wifi.
After installing Lede, I realized that I only had 64 MB ram, after installation, AP was often restarted.
I tried to return the original firmware, but I got this:
U-Boot 1.1.4 (Jan 11 2017 - 18:09:36)

Can you fix "AP" it and how?
I apologize for my bad English.
Thanks for the help.
I fixed my AP RE450.
A small addition to the documentation.
To get into CLI mode I did the following:
When I wrote the "Autobooting message in 1 seconds" I entered "tpl".
Scorpion> setenv serverip 192.168.0.12; setenv ipaddr 192.168.0.8
(192.168.0.12 - my tftp server, 192.168.0.8 - ip address of my AP)
Then I used the commands above.
Is there a how to documentation to spi flash chip? I also want to flash my RE450 V2 to stock version, my RE450 isn't bricked, but WLAN 5GHZ doesn't work properly with Openwrt. Is there a easy way to go back to stock? I have read that RE450 don't have recovery mode. So you don't have the access to TFTP. Is that right?
Generally the process for stripping firmware is to download the firmware for your model / version and region from TP-Link, use binwalk to find where in the bin file the main kernel begins, and then use dd to remove everything before that.
Yes, but that is for the 128MB model, mine is 64MB similar to this post.
Anyways, I did try this one on my first try, it still failed with the same error. scorpion> tftp 0x80060000 re450bs.bin&&erase 0x9f020000 +$filesize&&cp.b $fileaddr 0x9f020000 $filesize
