shutin Posted March 16, 2013 Share Posted March 16, 2013 So I forgot my root password after changing it from the default. How can I get back to the factory defaults? I've tried: 1) holding down reset for 10 seconds, then ssh'ing in. default password does not work 2) holding reset for 10 seconds, waiting 5 minutes, sshing in, default password does not work. 3) holding reset for 10 seconds while powering on, etc, etc Does the reset button do ANYTHING? Am I stuck having to buy a UART cable and go through all the clean flash steps in order to get this thing back to stock? Is there a way to boot into failsafe mode (it is openwrt after all) and flash an image? firmware 2.8.0 able to ssh, load web interface (with login prompt, etc) Thanks for any help.
