Yes, it is done via USB. Procedure goes like this:
  • 1.) The device is booted so that a special "rescue mode" kernel is pushed to the device via USB. (this will work even for quite dead device)
  • 2.) When the device boots, it will export the internal filesystems as USB drives to the computer. It looks like 3 USB drives are connected to the computer. Also, the device will configure IP-over-USB (NDIS) type of network interface, allowing you to telnet to the device
  • 3.) You fix the MALF state, either via filesystem export or telnet
  • 4.) Profit...
