 +If you have a serial console and the above isn't working you can press ctrl-c while the router is booting to get to a CFE prompt, then either:
 +  - nvram set safe_mode_upgrade=on
 +  - nvram commit
 +  - reboot
 +Or
 +  - flash -ctheader -https : flash1.trx
 +
 +FIXME even though CFE says it's doing that last bit, it appears some setup is missing. Running the command manually from a canceled boot and then browsing to the upgrade page shows an immediate "​Update Success"​ and the router reboots (CFE reports that it has run the "​reboot"​ command).

 +Based on the CFE boot logs, it appears that the router attempts to load something via tftp with a max size of 0x32000 bytes (3.625MiB) into ram. This would limit our image size quite a bit.
