Re: Bricked WRT54GL v1.1. Toronto repair shop?

said by Taylortbb:

Have you ever done soldering before? That's that part I'd be most concerned about. Software is pretty easy to use when you've got a step-by-step guide. Also, do you have a computer with a parallel port? That's what the cable connects to.

I heard you can just tape it down for a temp connection... or put a heavy book on it.

torobull, I've bricked a GL before and it was quite easy to debrick with a JTAG. I built my own but the ones on ebay work great as well.

If you're concerned of your soldering ability, you can use some solderless pin headers to install in to the JTAG port on the GL. Do a search on eBay for solderless pin headers. They're a few dollars each, get a couple just to be sure although I think the GL only requires 6 actual points to make your flash correctly.

Have a look at this link. It's not as intimidating as it seems: »www.tiaowiki.com/w/Debrick_Route···AG_Cable
