Hello, I wanted to revert my TP-Link WA850RE v2.0 to the latest stock firmware today. I followed the steps from this wiki page in order to do so.
First I downloaded the TL-WA850RE-V2-stripped.bin firmware file to flash using the WebUI. However for some reason it wouldn't let me flash it. (I also tried with the stock firmware and it wouldn't flash for the same reason)
I went and installed libustream-openssl, ca-bundle and ca-certificates so that I could use wget and I downloaded the TL-WA850RE-V2-stripped.bin firmware file to /tmp.
I then proceeded with mtd -r write /tmp/tplink.bin firmware.
My device won't start anymore now. I assume it is bricked. I tried the reset button on the device but this doesn't change much.
Is there a way to fix without opening the device and soldering wires all over it?
If there's no easy fix, how come the wiki instructions lead users to do this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
