I week ago i debrick a WRT54G ([url]https://blog.billy.gr/archives/2005/02/12/debrick-a-wrt54g/[/url]) unfortunately it died again.
This time it wasn’t so easy. The main problem was that the CFE.BIN was corrupted = NO TFTP to put a new firmware.
The solution was to find a CFE.BIN and write it again on the WRT. After finally founding an image, i was able to put a new openwrt firmware. It took a lot of retries and erases of the nvram till the firmware boots. Which i cannot explain since it should create again the nvram filesystem on first reboot.
Don’t try a firmware over 3MB it will not work out. Believe me 🙂
I don’t know what exactly is the problem with that device. Maybe a flash problem. Anyway now it works, let’s see for how long 🙂
