TFTP and Failsafe doesn't work on e3000 trunk version

Description

I installed e3000 snapshot from 15th april on my Linksys e3000 router.
Then I made a big mistake and turned on wifi in bridge mode without configure it right. Additionally there is a problem on wifi and ethernet drivers in trunk, so when you turn on wifi in any mode, it automatically forces the ethernet ports to stop working.
So now i can't get any access to the router.
I booted into failsafe-mode by the instructions for the WRT610nv2 posted in the Wiki and I can't get a fucking ping. The eth0 light on the router is blinking like hell, but i can't get any ping from the router.
So i also can't telnet the router...
Then I tried to flash back into dd-wrt mini (3 MB) via TFTP.
My terminal-windows says that it successfully transfered all data of 3 MB to the router. Everything looked good. The DMZ-Light blinks as normal, so i assumed that the bootloader is now flashing the firmware and reboot in further time.
This wasn't right. It never ever rebooted.
So i waited for about 1 hour before I plugged out the power and rebooted myself. After reboot nothing has changed.
In my opinion the router can't be bricked, because I get a ping in the boot_wait time and also the light is flashing.
I hope that someone could explain me why TFTP and Failsafe doesn't work!
My OS: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (and Windows 8)

Try turn off and disassemble router, find flash chip, its easy http://83.141.4.210/phpBB2/files/wrt610nv2_flash_chip_146.jpg short pins 8-9 and turn on, after 5 sec unshort pins, try to ping 192.168.1.1, TTL should be 100, upload firmware with TFTP

Do you ever tried this before in your router? Because I heard that the success rate of this action isn't that high.
But if you say it works for you I would try it :)

I was able to fail safe my E3000 by repeatedly pressing the front button just after the end of the first set of power light blinks
Then telneted in after conecting with a static ip to LAN port 4 (as marked on the case) and gave the firstboot comant to start fresh
I know its a old post but I hope this helps someone
Big thanks to all the devs

This actually worked. I'm astonished, because I was fully expecting snake oil, but this got me into a working TFTP recovery and I was unable to unbrick my otherwise un-unbrickable E3000.

How was it different in the failsafe mode? (Did the power led blinked faster or some other lights started to blink?) Would you explain how did you do exactly? I tried all the methods to put it in failsafe mode but non of them were successful!
Thanks
