I bricked my router trying to fix upgrade issue. My bootloader is bricked so i am not getting anything from serial console. I desoldered the chip but now i have a small problem. I have no full dump of the chip. My mainboard is 2050500098 rev:1.1. If anyone has the full dump of the chip please share. I have found on a russian site but they need me to pass a test about electronics and circuits which i have no knowledge about. All help is appreciated. Thank you.

I am in the same situation. There are some files here: http://aspiregemstone.blogspot.com/2014/05/overclock-tp-link-wr1043nd.html.

I tried to flash them but the program flashrom would not let me as they are smaller than the flash.

If you succeed please post how so I can do the same.

My wr1043nd v1.11 was hard bricked too. Wrong command caused bootloader to overwrite with garbage
I suppose the attached file contains full SPI copy of a working device with the stock firmware? If yes, how can I extract only the bootloader (aka cfe) and flash it using jtag, so the device can boot into recovery and flash the rest firmware from tftp?

There's a short list of dd-wrt versions that work with this model: https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=316454 There's some working, slightly older versions listed.

If you would like something more up to date, and continue getting updates in 2019, then this: https://www.gargoyle-router.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=11819 WiFi hint: Set to the right country on the first boot, and after that, search for openwrt's noscan option.
