I have C9v1 I'm trying to unbrick, I have serial connection to the router and I am looking for a stripped firmware to upload, as every .bin file I try fails.

I have seen old post on the subject, but all the links to files are broken.

So if anybody has a stripped bootloader file I would love to get a link to it.

At this point, I just want to see if I salvage this router. I was trying to upload a file using the reset button and recovery.bin, but that never worked. I then recieved a fdti cable and I couldnt get the dam thing to work on my new HP laptop as all my com ports were closed, and nothing I did to fix that worked, also I had to fix one of the caps that broke off on the router, luckily I had one of similar value and seems to do its job.

Then I dug out my old HP laptop and that had no issue communicating with the router. Now, I just need a stripped firmware without the bootload.
