I had the custum firmware 02a up and running and everything was fine. Then somehow I managed to screw it up by destroying 'bash' now when I login it says that the home directory does not exist.

I flashed to asus firmware to get telnet access back. I cannot fix the problem because I cannot edit 'passwd' to change my home dir and shell. I've tried to install the newer busybox which includes 'vi' but with no success.

when I flash back to 02a it loads 'passwd' and tries to use the bash shell which no longer exists and automaticly quits :(

On the ASUS router admin page I cannot select Erase disk. the field is simply blank! (also been blank in asus org firmware)

so..... How do I format the f*cker so I'm all back to basics :)

Remove all accounts from webui, reflash and passwd should be overwritten. You have to disable accountmodus (UBSA) in webui (otherwise its not replacing the passwd).

thank you, that did the trick.
