I have a WRT54G v3.0 that I bricked like a year ago...but kept around in an anti-static bag in case I ever wanted to JTAG it (at the time I didn't know beans about linux so I said screw it...and bought another router). Now...I know some linux...so I pulled it out, wired up a header, made a JTAG cable...and off I went. I've backed up my nvram, cfe, kernel, and wholeflash. I would imagine that things are fine with my routers hardware because a) my broadcom CPU is detected correctly, b) my flash is detected correctly, c) JTAG (flash, erase, and backup) all seem to work just fine. My CFE.BIN seems to be intact as I cat'ed the file and piped it to "grep <mymachere>"...basically searched the file for my MAC of my router....and it found it. So I assume that the CFE.BIN is fine. The problem is that regardless of what I do I can't seem to unbrick it (The power/dmz lights still blink repeatedly). Here's what I've done so far: 1) wireup passive JTAG and compile WRT54G flash util - props to hairydairymaid 2) get laptop parport0 running 3) backup nvram, cfe, kernel, wholeflash 4) ERASE nvram 5) test router - still blinking 6) suspected firmware corruption (router bricked because failed web-install of firmware) - download newest default linksys firmware for the WRT54G v3 from their website. Rename to "kernel.bin". Run "./WRT54G -flash:kernel" 7) 3 hours later "COMMAND SUCCESSFULY COMPLETED" 8 ) reboot (unplug and replug) - lights still blinking 9) since i'm noob at JTAGing....expect that it needs some sort of NVRAM at least??? - reflash backup'ed nvram 10) reboot - lights still blinking 11) erase nvram 12) download newest build of thibor hyperwrt 15c (currently installed on my OTHER WRT54G v3.0 <<< unfortunately not JTAG capable at the moment.....not willing to risk hurting that one too) 13) rename it to kernel.bin and run "./WRT54G -flash:kernel" 14) 3 hrs later "COMMAND SUCCESSFULY COMPLETED" 15) reboot - lights still blinking Any ideas? If I missed some important step please tell me as I've never managed to resurrect a WRT54G via JTAG since this is my first time.
