    The events that led up to the brick:
    The router was running Tomato 1.28 just fine. It's in fairly excellent condition. The address to it before it bricked was One day, the power went out and it got stuck in power LED flashing mode for the past several months. I have tried hard reset to no avail. Connecting a computer to one of the ports will show activity, but you cannot ping the router.

    Current status of the WRT54GS v.2:
    It's new years and one of my resolutions is to unbrick this fine specimen. I have a USB JTAG hooked to it with the USB JTAG NT 0.34a software open. I am able to detect the chip and retrieve the following:
    Copyright 2008,2009,2010
    USB JTAG NT 0.34a
    IDCODE 1471217F
    Broadcom BCM4712
    IMPCODE 00800904
    EJTAG V1, V2.0
    DMA supoorted
    Found Address= 9fc00000 Intel 28F640J3

    Does anyone have the experience to guide me through the rest of the procedure? Please let me know if I have left out any other important detail for you to help. I am completely green.

    After 5 hours of tweaking, I've gotten the router into a state where I can ping it. How do I TFTP a compatible firmware into the router from one of it's LAN ports? :)
