Unable to unbrick HooToo HT-TM01

Hello everyone,

I recently encountered an issue after flashing the sysupgrade.bin file via ssh using the sysupgrade command. Following this process, I was unable to obtain the IPv4 address of the router, and even after manually configuring it, I couldn't connect to the router through both ssh and web page.

I attempted to reset the router, but unfortunately, that did not resolve the issue. I am currently seeking guidance on any potential solutions or methods to recover my router from this stage.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Thank you for your response, I used the TFTP method for reinstalling OpenWrt. I have attempted to download the OpenWrt image into my TFTP directory (/srv/tftp) and turn on the router in a preferred way, but unfortunately, the router is not responding to it. I have checked the system logs using "grep tftp /var/log/syslog" and confirmed that there is no response from the router.

I am seeking additional guidance on specific steps to take to unbrick the router. If you require any further information, please let me know and I will be happy to provide it. Thank you in advance for your help.

additional guidance would be

  • make sure firewall is diabled

if it still fails, take it apart, and find the serial console, if there's one.
