Wrong Boot Register

In doing a password recovery on a Cisco 1605, I fat-fingered the command. Instead of typing "confreg 0x2142", I typed "confreg 0x1242". Now, when the router boots, all I get is a string of "C"s. Anybody know how to recover from a bonehead mistake like this and get it to boot properly again?

Re: Wrong Boot Register

1242 induces:

Boot image from flash

ignore NVRAM

baud rate: 1200 bauds.

Change your terminal settings to use 1200 bauds and you should get control of it again.
