This software brick my router Netgear WNR 3500l V2. Probably is uncompatible with this device. I'm download firmware file from ftp sent to device via scp. Then I try update router via ssh. I'm do that without reset configuration. After update and reboot router device start only with orange power led. It can't any other step to start device and orange led is still. I try hard reset button on case without any actions and device is brick. I use USB-><-Serial cable to flash via tftp and I must back to version from 15 Oct 2019 is OK for my device. You must check what's wrong is with the newest version of firmware for WNR3500L v2.

I was the dumbass... figured it's better to post the standard thread and include a warning rather than risk people missing threads like this or stumbling on the information on their own.
So I saw and commented Someone else opted NOT to post a build thread and email BS. This was well AFTER I re-opened egc's ticket to report the brick, and probably WELL before the alpha was pushed to beta. But, what the hell do I care anymore. If we continue to gauge releasing betas on R7800s and Broadcom ARM success, then we might as well take a foot or two off with buckshot. It's pretty obvious that not much else is given a damn about around here.
