FS#598 - 842nd doesnt flash successful with factory image using the tftp-recover over the bootloader

Device: 842nd v3.1
LEDE: 17.01

Go into recovery tftp mode by pressing first the WPS/Reset button and now connect the power.
The device enters tftp recovery to download via tftp from file (wr842nv3_tp_recovery.bin)

The device *seems* to accept the flash (sorry, no serial to confirm).
On boot, the device doesn’t show leds nor it accepts any packets on ipv6 on any port (ping ff02::1) or ping to

I guess this happens, because the oem flasher doesn’t flash all blocks of the factory image.

To recover from this state:
- flash via tftp recovery
- enter LEDE rescue/recovery
- ssh root@
- use sysupgrade image

- confirm this happens also with trunk
- use serial to get more debug
