    Hi, I'm a newbie in this forum, and I bricked my WRT54G 2.0. Shame on me, I was using OpenWRT and X-Wrt, and wrong firewall rules closed my Linksys to the world. :mad:

    I tried to debrick it, but no success. :eek: I tried firmware upgrade by tftp, short-circuit in the flash chip. So, I sent it to a friend of mine, good with electronics, and he tried the JTAG cable. No way, it keeps flashing the power LED. :frown:

    We were thinking about copying ALL the flash chip, from another WRT54G, and save it into my router. He has all the knowledge and the equipment to do this "surgery", and a friend of him has a WRT54G, which will be "copied". Unfortunately, his friend's Linksys is a v. 1.0 one.

    Does anyone knows if we can do this, copying all the flash chip (and NVRAM, and CFE, and whatever) to another router? Even if the one which is giving is older (1.0) than the receiver (2.0)?

    And, if we can't do this, does anyone has a "core dump" from a working WRT54G 2.0 that can be sent to me? Or, any other suggestions, in order to resolve my serious problem?

    I would be grateful with any help from you.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here goes the MAC address

    Its MAC address is: 00:12:17:12:C0:AD.

    You can send the CFE.BIN to rjp@email.com.br, thanks in advance! :biggrin:

    :idea: That friend of mine, who is an ace with electronics, said to me that he had tried to generate a new CFE.BIN, and he used the pmon/cfe bootloader creator 2.3, from skynet... But it failed to him. :mad:

    So, I hope he's wrong... :eek:

    Thanks, bye!
