Re: debrick a router

This is gonna be very router specific, but see eg. https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/mi- … ost-535680 and consult the manual.
Whether it's redeemable depends on how badly it's "bricked"…

That doesn't say much about how bad it is.
The only ways to recover from that are to write the nvram in hw or - as the forum post suggests - the router might have a failsafe option where it auto-draws firmware updates from a usb key even before the router OS (fails to) boot.

Maybe open it up?

The ERLite3 router for example has an internal USB stick in a port. Easy to fix smile

Obviously this is very router dependant and most probably don't have this.
