RAX120 caught in boot loop after firmware update, factory reset not not working

Started update of latest sept 2022 firmware but router now only shows power light flashing white. Factory reset doesn't appear to work, just rolls through into flashing power white led. Any help please!?

You can try recovering it with tftp or nmrpflash.
are you on windows? if so, follow this guide
https://kb.netgear.com/000059634/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-Windows-TFTP
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.

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