Bricked WRT54v4

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: highest Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Latest release of barrier_breaker 14.07-rc3 bricked Linksys WRT54G v4.

After slashing, router restarted, gave DHCP address to the client.
Web interface was very slow, it took on average about 8 to 10 seconds to load pages.

Wifi interface did not started by default.
When wifi was started via web-interface, router stopped responding via web-interface.
Power LED when from solid green to randomly flashing.
about 60 sec later router restarted, WIFI LED turned on, power light kept flashing fast in random pattern.
Web-interface became very unstable, pages would not load, time out.
SHH got broken, no response. Telnet would randomly work, closing connections.
Restarting the router resulted in the same behavior.
Holding reset button during the boot did NOT initiated TFTP session to feed another firmware.
It is not possible to reach the page for firmware upgrade in web-interface (when web-interface responsive at all).
If router reboots to the point when it is possible to set the password (so that SSH log in is possible)... by the time attempt can be made to SSH to the router, it freezes, restarts and resets the root psw so you would have to start all over again.

The response is, that its working in recent versions. rc3 was an release candidate. The final version of 14.07 is already out where its fixed. So dont use recent final software instead of old testing versions.

This bug can be closed.
