#10882 new defect

Failsafe does not work at all in 10.03.1 (DIR-825)

Reported by: jb-debbugs@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: base system Version: 10.03.1
Keywords: Cc:


With 10.03.1 final on a DIR-825, entering failsafe by pressing the WDS key (pressing the reset key during triggers boot loader recovery), doesn't work.


  1. The device remains "bricked"
  1. ping from doesn't get a response
  1. telnet doesn't work either.

Tested with both the ...-squashfs-factory.bin and ...-jffs2-backup-loader.bin.

In my case this left me with no option but to reflash through the bootloader after each failure, which is slow and bad for the flash chips.
