R6020 green power light flashing

I purchased my router a year ago and it was working fine. Then after moving it to another location it suddenly stopped working. I theorize it was in the middle of an update and got disconnected. Now whenever I turn it on all I get is the power light flashing green. I have tried resetting it and also tried installing the new firmware with TFTP - however it does not work. I think it’s completely bricked. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. In the net gear app it says it needs to update, but since my router is not working it can’t connect to it.

You can try recoving it with tftp or nmrpflash.
are you on windows? if so, follow this guide

just make sure you enable tftp

and here's a video walk through using a tftp client. Use the built in one for windows 10 though. the video is more of an example of how its done. Tftp is sensitive to timings so you might need to try a couple times.

and if that doesn't work, you can try using nmrpflash
