Recover bricked TL-MR3020 Wireless N Router
After flashing the latest OpenWRT image file (openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr3020-v1-squashfs-factory dated 03-Jun-2013), my TL-MR3020 is bricked. All the LED is keep on blinking (about 3 seconds once) except power LED, and the network is getting connected and disconnected every 3 seconds. Very lucky that the problem was fiexed by using serial console and Tftpd32 method.
