A Bad Flash to koolshare on the netgear r8000, attached the serial cable and info as below, the router has been power on 12 hours, pressed and hold the wps, reset but it wont go futher in, also ctrl C didn´t work, is there a way to use the jtag with openocd or some other way to recover it ?

Press Control-C when it is loading to break into the CFE.

Try erasing the NVRAM from the CFE prompt first, that may be all you have to do. I think the command is nvram erase from the CFE prompt, and from a telnet or SSH window it is erase nvram.

Koolshare cfe or fw setting wps button=gpio7 compare to Netgear cfe or fw setting wps button=gpio14.

Instead hold ctrl+C,replace data=0×03 in hex may push router into cfe prompt command.

Or you can search r8000 led which connect to gpio 7 and pull up to 3.3v leading wps button deactivate.

...blinking once per second? Able to ping the router?

Try using nmrpflash to get back to normalcy. Flash to Netgear firmware and get back to dd-wrt after that

Base on your router log :https://www.snbforums.com/threads/rt-ac86u-very-easy-to-brick.45019/

You may flash a mod fw which origin coming from Asus rt-ac86 which hardware build in 512 MB instead 256 MB memory of r8000.

You may try to short 2 pins 8&9 of nand (RE# & CE#) or pin 16&17 (CLE & ALE) to fool router that fw was corrupted and force them to tftp download new fw before get further unbricked.

Notice: here the Dts of OEM r8000
wps {
label = "WPS";
linux,code = <KEY_WPS_BUTTON>;
gpios = <&chipcommon 14 GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW

Hey!!!! What in the F#€k just happened???

Did one of our last standing moderators..."edited out of fear"...just totaly and permanently delete a post of theirs in this thread that had potential misinformation?

That was indirectly pointed out by a member that they have talked down apon in the past.

Just because he/she has an extremely poor choice of translators does not mean they don't know anything...obviously.

Should this really be allowed? Even for a moderator? Is this the first time?

Everyone else has to admit to an error, give credit where it is due, edit their post or let it ride and hope no one notices.

Well it's been fun hear while it lasted.....pretty sure I'm going to be banded.....for some unknown reason of course...although since this thread has less than 100 views maybe I'll just be deemed delusional,

Ctrl+C is a indirect command tell cfe in text to break loading fw.

0x03 hex is a direct command stop at cfe prompt.

Putty software set default data as text.

Most recently Asus fw which hidden some cfe with embedded counter measure that fw do able detect none-supported-asus-merlin router and then auto flash any new update cfe which may bricked your router.

Base on your router log , OEM cfe of r8000 should be cfe.. foxcon.. R8000.

This thread should be deleted entirely. For a lot of people this thread is misleading. You can't immediately tell that this bricking issue has nothing to do with dd-wrt, but with the fact, that someone flashed a asus fw clone.

Or just change the subject to:

Help flashed Asus FW to R8000, now bricked.

Kong is right.

Someone should reconcile help thread before accusing and cry out.

Relax. I deleted my own posts saying “waiting for reset button release” can’t be fixed.
I read the post to quick and later noticed he said “wps” and not reset.

I’ve never talked down to deslatha. All I’ve ever said is that I often can’t understand his English or google translate. Whatever.

I’ll only delete a post other than mine if members resort to name calling each other or if it’s spam.
