Netgear R6220 bricked

When updating my router I somehow managed to brick it. I have tried using holding down reset button thought that does not seem to work as it just reboots and nothing happens. I also tried TFTP and nmrpflash but nothing seems to work.

In this guide How to upload firmware to a NETGEAR router using TFTP client? | Answer | NETGEAR Support it says that the power LED should be amber colored, but mine is always just green. If I hold down the reset button while starting, The power button is solid green, but the internet and wireless LEDs are blinking one after eachother like the LED would be moving from one to another and then back in a loop. I tried searching up something similar but I found nothing about that moving LED thing.

   Your model lacks the multi-color LEDs described there, so you might
need to be a little flexible.

 

   I'd also suggest using a command-line TFTP program.  See, for
example:
