one of my cisco 837 router restarted on power failure and IOS failed.
on console access i got rom-mon mode
i tried to set back the config reg to 0x2102 and restarted then router booted to somthing unusual... like *** Soft loop.
i restared a couple of times then did recovery and loaded image via tftpdnld which went ok and i can see the file in flash.
but on reset it failes again..
it starts the self decompression and goes in a "*** Soft" loop then terminates later on with below error
*** Software Emulation Exception ***
PC = 0xfffa0fe4, Vector = 0x1000, SP = 0x82000098
monitor: command "boot" aborted due to exception
rommon 3 >
