I have seen many posts related to people bricking their routers (I did it once to my WRT54G unit). As probably posted many times already, it is next to impossible to "brick" a Linksys WRT54G or GS unit. There are many sources to help you recover a "bricked" unit. But what happens when the 30 second reset doesn't work or power on while holding the reset for 5 seconds? How about the "pin short method"?. Enter the JTAG recovery method. It has been discovered that you can perform a hardware hack/mod to add on a JTAG interface on the circuit board. hairydairymaid of the Sveasoft dev team has put together a really good recepie and even coded the utility to do the flash recovery method. http://www.sveasoft.com/modules/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6796&highlight=jtag. It was originally written for Linux but has recently been ported to Windows by ShermanOwen. Go to http://www.sveasoft.com/modules/phpBB2/dlman.php?func=select_folder&folder_id=19 for the public "tools" section where it resides. The only problem left is to get a virgin whole flash image with the embeded unique MAC stripped out so that it could be a generic image for anyone to use.
