Please help me my R8500 Reboot Loop problem occurred.

I bought it on November 29 amazon(US).
After upgrading firmware, it was reboot looped.
I am currently in Korea. Can repair it?

 

* Power cycling the router (via both the power button, and unplugging from the wall)
* Reset via the button on the back
* 30/30/30 Reset
* tftp (getting the idea from this page and following these instructions to do it via Linux)

None have seemed to have had any effect. Everytime, the lights flash on, the power light goes amber, more flashing lights, then they all go off and it starts over.

 

Following the tfto guide, I was able to connect to the router (confirmed via ping), but every time I tried to transfer the file, it timed out.

Model: R8500|Nighthawk X8 Tri-Band AC5300 WiFi Router
