Lost access to switch after upgrade to metro access image

After an upgrade of a 3400 ME switch image to metro access one (340x), the switch was reloaded. After that, the only way to access the switch is the console port. I am beginner with cisco switches but I managed to configure the switch to make an upgrade through TFTP. Now I want to configure port 0/1 on vlan access mode to vlan 1. Any help on this is more than welcome. Thank you.

I found the source of the problem. My switch was connected to another one. I had to explicitly put port type to nni.

Hope it helps someone.
