TP-Link TL-WR841ND V14.2 (Hardware MOD 8Mb/64Mb to make compatiable with V13)

I just bricked TP-Link TL-WR841ND V14.2 with SNAPSHOT build.

as per
V13 and V14 has same SOC,
If I change FLASH to 8Mb and RAM to 64Mb, can I use
"openwrt-18.06.4-ramips-mt76x8-tl-wr841n-v13-squashfs-tftp-recovery.bin image" ?

No, even if the devices are similar, they are not identical and demand dedicated images.

Isn't the v14 only 4/32 while the v13 is 8/64 . So i am guessing that is the main reason one would need a different/smaller image for v14.
I just checked tp-link firmware and that confirms that v14 is just that smidgen under 4Mb

Just newbies 2c


probably the reason why the topic says hardware mod ...

Ok, sorry. I'll shut up
