So I stupidly managed to brick my AC68U by putting a JFFS2 partition on it via the DD-WRT GUI, and it has no ability to manage flash partitions in the GUI.
I went to update from the last Kong build to a BrainSlayer build and it instantly soft bricked.
Now nothing flashes on to it, but the CFE web interface is accessible.
I don’t have serial console equipment to do a brute force fixing in that direction, so what can I do? Am I screwed to have to buy another router? I need a good one for OpenVPN because I cannot trust my home connection anymore because our new ISP’s router looks like something straight out of a Shenzhen clone router manufacturer. I NEED VPN.
You wouldn’t trust a router that had QC stickers, no admin login, and had cheap McDonald’s toy plastic even if it looked like this, right?
