I woud try a reset of the router.. to see if it will do this... found this online....

Before you continue below, make sure you've first tried a hard reset to revive your router:

  1. Disconnect the router from UTP cables (not the power cable).
  2. Push reset button for 30 secs.
  3. Without releasing reset button, disconnect power cord.
  4. Hold the reset button for another 30 secs.
  5. Replug the power cord.
  6. Still hold the reset button for another 30 secs.
  7. Release the reset button and give the router about 10 secs to resettle.
  8. Disconnect power cord for another 10 secs and then reconnect.
  9. All should be in default settings now.

This procedure is usually called 30/30/30 reset.

This may not be exact on your router... there was also something about it trying to TFTP on 192.168.1.55 I also found ways to use the DOS Prompt to upload firmware to a router in this state but I am not for sure if this thing supports it...

Regardless have faith in that rest button from what I am seeing..

I personally have only bricked one router in my life.. it was a Linksys... I didn't do the most recent version.. and the UI presented was void of all characters.. would not respond.. so I had to search for a way to flash the firmware after resetting it... I would look around online... There may be a resolution somewhere specific to your issue if all else fails..

..and look into what your putting in there before you do.. sometimes the smallest differences get you into trouble..

The only way on the book is to re-flash it again with the correct one other than that your router is useless.

Debrick hints

Should the install go awry, you can get a tftp server running, then copy the .bin to the root of the tftpserver.

The IP of the server should be 192.168.1.55 (the Hame will come up at 192.168.1.2), then look for a file the same as the serial number. For instance, the SN (on the back) is 9c417c333ed7. Create a link from the openwrt bin file to this file name:

ln -s openwrt-ramips-rt305x-mpr-a2-initramfs-uImage.bin 9c417c333ed7​

This I found as well for the A2... this should be basic instructions on how this is going to go.. I am not for sure if this is command line for Linux or what but was on an OpenWRT Site about the router..

And here..

Start where it says How To...

HX1 bro I had followed these steps earlier but I am confused in those steps like

Now we see request from Hame to download via tftpd file with name: 9c417c75a478.

When I run wireshark I never see this and how to run tftpd properly
