Unfortunately, the firmware cannot be installed by factory web configuration utility. Someone may try to build the sources from ftp://opensource.zyxel.com/NBG-419N to check what is needed for it.
Open the case, connect a TTL-to-RS232 converter cable (not the standard serial cable!) - see port.serial. I used Nokia CA-50 cable. You can also use a USB to TTL Serial Cable - Debug/Console Cable for Raspberry Pi. See image below for connection.
Port speed is 57600, 8 databits, no parity, 1 stopbits, both hardware and software flow control must be disabled. The router does not power on when serial cable is connected, so you have to connect the cable after powering on. Using the Raspberry Pi cable the router booted on once I connected the red/+ cable.
If you miss the bootloader (U-Boot) prompt, wait until ZyXEL Linux boots and issue
reboot. When you see U-Boot prompt, press 2:
Please choose the operation: 1: Load system code to SDRAM via TFTP. 2: Load system code then write to Flash via TFTP. 3: Boot system code via Flash (default). 4: Entr boot command line interface. 6: To emergency. 9: Load Boot Loader code then write to Flash via TFTP.

Put openwrt-ramips-rt305x-nbg-419n-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin to
/var/lib/tftpboot and start your TFTP server. U-Boot did not like such a long file name, so I renamed
openwrt.bin. Connect one of the router's LAN ports and TFTP server to the same LAN.
Then press Y and enter IP for your device, TFTP server and firmware image file name:

- To remove the cover simply remove the two screws on the bottom. Then just open it.
- The board itself has no screws.
The Bootloader used in this unit is U-Boot. It is available through the serial interface with the settings: 57600/N/1
