|Hello, as the title says I bricked a wr740n v4 by flashing the factory-to-ddwrt bin file on it. The router was running on default settings on the latest tp link firmware.
Once the flashing process was completed, the router rebooted and was just stuck there.
So it appears as the following:
Power on only to see the power LED for few seconds, followed by all LEDs on for a second and then it powers off on its own. Stuck in a bootloop.
I am aware of the "rescue mode" by holding reset and powering on, it should light up the Lock LED allowing me to tftp a recovery image on it, but I simply can not get the Lock LED to light up. Is it missing this feature on the v4 or am I missing something?
(Got no serial cables)
Thanks in advance!
