any ideas how I could get from openwrt back to dd-wrt (or buffalo original fw)? i was testing the build 20453 and bricked my wbmr, only way to get it back running was to install openwrt via using firmware.ram upload over tftp...
neither dd-wrt or buffalo stock firmwares can be flashed using bootloader requesting firmware.ram from tftp server -method. or have i understood something wrong?
After the brick you have to flash a openwrt image by sftp ramdisc method
(How to recover from bricking) you must join
wiki.openwrt.org/_media/toh/buffalo/openwrt-lantiq-ar9-wbmr-uimage.tar00.zip and wiki.openwrt.org/_media/toh/buffalo/openwrt-lantiq-ar9-wbmr-uimage.tar01.zip to get firmawe.ram , once you have openwrt recovery you have to flash the file webflash truncada.bin in openwrt gui (its simply a cutted version of a previus webflah firmware).

Problem was in the power on with aoss pushed. When I switched off the power my MAC was shutting down the ethernet interface and the time to set it up when the router power is on seems to be too long with respect to the tftp request. I solved by changing computer...
After your router is booted.
- Change your computer IP Address from 192.168.11.2 to auto (DHCP). And wait for new IP.
- Start HFS and add file uImage.bin to root.
- Telnet to router 192.168.1.1, chdir to /tmp
- wget http://[Computer IP]/uImage.bin
- Flash new image "mtd -r write uImage.bin linux".
- Wait for router reboot.
