Having same problem with 3.7 after bios upgrade :(

Still have no physical access to location. Any known solution to this problem ?

Will RouterBOOT allow "upgrade" back to 2.12 ? Image can be found at http://www.routerboard.com/files/rb-2.1 ... 0-2.12.fwf

mangust, have you tried this?

Managed to recover RB150 into operational mode by dowgrading BIOS back to 2.12.

your choice: g - upgrade firmware

Upgrade firmware options:
e - upgrade firmware over ethernet
s - upgrade firmware over serial port
your choice: s - upgrade firmware over serial port


xmodem receiver ready, waiting for data...
press <Ctrl>+X several times to cancel transfer
press any key to continue...
file transfer ok

Thank you for instruction.
It does really help me to make router alive.
However it will be great to hear official notice from MT stuff about this.
Is it safe or not to upgrade on firmware 2.13 on all other boards?

They released new BIOS version. Haven't tried yet, because my RB150 is on remote location without console access.

Hope this version will be included with next ROS3 release

just put file to root on your RB and do:

/system routerboard print (upgrade firmware: 2.14)
/system routerboard upgrade
/system reboot :)

You do not need console :)

honzam, the issue was faulty 2.13 BIOS which caused bootup failure on RB150.

After recent experience i'm no longer willing to upgrade bios remotely without console access.
