If that works, you can just restore a backup image onto flash using the
recovery techniques mentioned in the wiki (hopefully you did a backup). I
would use this:
as I can make a TFTP server quite easily, but follow here if you want to use
the easier approaches:
Note that this means you will lose everything on your flash (except
configurations like MAC address, IP address if statically-assigned).
Your other option would be to solder a 4-port serial header and use a
powered TTL-to-RS232 adapter per this wiki:
and see what the console shows when it boots, and then post a link to the
log pasted at pastebin.ca to the list.
If/when you get it working, it's a good idea to periodically back up
and store the backup on another machine.
Hope that helps,
