Hi guys,

I just got my Sam Knows Whitebox which is a TP-Link TL-WDR3600. I tried everything to find a way to login to the device but unfortunately I found nothing. I would like to flash this router with DDWRT and I would be really thankful if someone could please help me. Thanks in advance.

The procedure is similar to http://blog.nyr.be/hacking-the-whitebox/ just make sure you get the right firmware build for this router from the dd-wrt hardware database.

Yeah it's pretty easy to change root password or flash firmware.

Quote:
Failsafe mode

Power up your router. When the 'SYS' light starts to blink you have about 1 seconds to press the WPS/Reset button on the back-left of the router and hold it until the blinking gets faster.

For what you can do in failsafe, go to the OpenWrt Failsafe Mode page.

I'm a little late to the game... any way I went ahead and flashed tl-wdr3600-webflash.bin but now it sems kind of bricked. Just the powerled is blue and I get no contact what so ever.

When I flashed it said;
unlocking firmware...
writing to firmware...
rebooting...

And now it is pretty much dead.

Any suggestion on what to do?
