Musti is a fan of the Bus Pirate and writes to share his method for using it to unbrick a TP-Link wireless router. The router had been bricked during a failed firmware upgrade, and Musti was able to desolder the FLASH memory chip and rewrite the bootloader to it using BP along with Flashrom.

Get more photos, links and details on Musti’s project on his Wlanslovenija website.
