An update.

Can confirm that flashing a sysupgrade image (can be the same build) after flashing the factory one is MANDATORY to ensure the router would not brick after a power cycle.

I flashed the factory image and then the sysupgrade image afterwards, after recovering the router using NMRP. The kernel showed some bad blocks being marked when flashing the sysupgrade one, and when I power cycled it today (as I'm moving it to another place), the router works fine.
