FS#1082 - TP-link 1043 nd comes into boot loop in 17.01.4

After flashing 17.01.4 to tl1043nd version 1.8 the device became in boot loop without even coming to SYS led blinking. Trying to get it into recovery mode did not work, I assume it does not start up to that point.

Hi @nektarin,

Could you check if your device contains tftp recovery mode in U-Boot [1]?
If it does, could please upload again 17.01.4 factory image and see if it works?

Do you maybe have (or can make) serial access to your device?

I tried the tftp recovery, as I said the router did not react to pressing the reset button at all. I am going to try the serial access when I get the ttl adapter.

Hi @nektarin,

People sometimes call "failsafe" a "recovery" mode, that's why I got confused and asked about "tftp recovery".

I have just tried 17.01.4 (factory and sysupgrade from 17.01.3) on a v1.8 of this model (with last available vendor firmware: 140319), without any issues.

Maybe something went wrong during the upgrade. Full bootlog from the serial console should tell you more - please reopen this ticket or issue another one when you get more details.
