Bricked EIF48G... bad loader code?!

So updating the firmware went horribly wrong and somehow I must have hit the "L" key whilst doing so and overwrote the loader code with garbage.  Not I get no console output on power up.  Opening the case I see a single push button switch and also some sort of jumper which may be able to be used to re-program.  Push button didn't do a thing.  Hopefully someone out there can shed some light on this....

There must be some way to reprogram this thing.  I'm an electronics engineer by education but have no clue without schematics or something.  No one...?!

Hi adrian1,

     Sorry, there is no infomration that I can find on how to recover that switch from that state. Also that switch is very old now, you might be better off looking at FWS648G  if you only need a 1 G switch.

Thanks

Michael.
