GL-MT300N-V2 BRICKED after firmware update [ SOLVED! ]

I have the same problem.
I bricked it by trying to flash: gl-mt300n-v2-3.012.bin

I tried deBricking it by following this page:

I tried the following bin files:

  • lede-gl-mt300n-v2-clean.bin
  • gl-mt300n-v2-3.0-1011_clean.bin
  • lede-mt300n-v2-clean-2.264.bin
  • lede-mt300n-v2-2.26.bin

…Still doesn’t boot.

  • My ethernet adapter can’t find an IP.
  • going to the address ( doesn’t work (obviously)
  • The 1st green light is the only light that comes on.

And your reason for opening a second thread with exactly the same problem/question is?

If you try to debrick it following Debrick via Uboot - GL.iNet Docs. It should work.

Could you please try this firmware via U-Boot?

Please don’t use clean version.

Hey Glitch! You are ON IT my friend :sunglasses:
Yeah I wasn’t sure if my post was visible buried in the thread a year old.

Ok, I posted this new thread and also emailed support…forgive me.
Support said to flash with gl-mt300n-v2-3.012.bin (again) from the v1 folder:

So…here are my steps.

  1. Downloaded gl-mt300n-v2-3.012.bin from GL.iNet download center
  2. Reset Device: Held down reset button, then plugged in, then released after the 4th flash
  3. Hard wired from the LAN port of the GL-MT300N to my computer
  4. Hard code my wired network adapter to
  5. Go to on browser
  6. chose file (gl-mt300n-v2-3.012.bin) and updated firmware
  7. I wait as the red light flashes for a few seconds…
  8. then all 3 come on solid for a few seconds…
  9. then they all shut off then all flash, with a solid green on the left
  10. I change my network adapter back to “obtain automatically”…
  11. it tries to connect…nothing…“unidentified network”, “No network access”, IP is
  12. go to …“site can’t be reached”
  13. waited over 5 mins
  14. again, …“site can’t be reached”

OH!!! MY!!! DUMB@$$!!!
I do NOT have a V2
I’m so sorry I suck at life.

Lesson learned…please ask the noobs to type out the EXACT model number listed on the back.

I loaded the NON-V2 bin file and it works.
Thanks everyone.
