Default Bricked WRT54GS V2 Help needed.

I flashed this router with DD-WRT and it was working fine untill I did a 30/30/30 hard reset to change few things. Since then, the power light blinks continuously and no ther lights come on unless I hook up ethernet cable and for that respective port, light comes on. I can not ping or nothing. I tried shortening pin 15-16 etc. and all the other methods except JTAG.

I am ready to go JTAG path but I have confusion after lots of reading I have done. I deduced from reading that blinking power light is caused by bad NVRAM or bootstrap. Is this true?
If so where can I find NVRAM to flash the corrupt NVRAM.

Google for the term UnBrick WRT54GS V2

Try soem of the method that you find there.

Be aware that in most case there is nothing that will help you and you will have to get a new Router.

This is only $35 and it x100 better than the WRT54GS V2 that was a partial "Dud" even when it was new upon release

Default I did google......

I did an extensive reading before posting. Buying another router is no problem but I feel challenged to unbrick it.
