This step has helped me to unbrick the router http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/generic.flashing.tftp#linuxbsd . This step has helped me to unbrick the router http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/generic.flashing.tftp#linuxbsd .
-Basically I used the netkit's tftp procedure. +You can try something like this (from a GNU/Linux computer):
<code> <code>
-tftp 192.168.1.1 +1. Turn off the power to the router and leave it off until the final step. 
-binary +2. Make sure your computer has a static IP address from 192.168.1.x (eg. 192.168.1.4) 
-rexmt 1 +3. Make sure the ethernet cable is plugged into one of router's LAN ports and the other end into computer's ethernet port 
-timeout 60 +3. cd to the folder where you have the image 
-trace +4. change the name of the new firmware to code.bin , then type : 
-Packet tracing on+5. echo -e &quot;binary\nrexmt 1\ntimeout 60\ntrace\nput code.bin\n" | tftp 192.168.1.1 
-tftp&gt; put openwrt-xxx-x.x-xxx.bin+6. plug the power into the router, it should flash.

 +there are two easily accessible spare gpios. Gpio13 is the extra pin on the serial header, and gpio0 is at the bottom left of the board, where there are pads for a fourth LED which has not been soldered in.
 +The author of the first link above reported that gpio13 would only work as an output, not as an input. I did not have that problem.

 + 
 +Note that, at least for 12.09, switch support seems to have issues: switch configuration changes don't "take" until a reboot, and when configuring tagged and untagged VLANs, outgoing traffic for the untagged VLAN is still tagged. This needs to be further investigated. 
 + 
 +If you don't need the switch, consider swapping the WAN and LAN ports as eth1 is directly connected.
