brick after update


I've got WNR3500Lv2 (128mb) powered by UPS. Successfully flash router with Shibby

tomato-Netgear-3500Lv2-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x--101-AIO.chk .

Then after tests I decide to try Toastman and successfully flashed with

tomato-Netgear-3500Lv2-K26USB-1.28.0500.5Toastman-RT-N-VLAN-VPN.chk .

Then after tests I decide to try another Toastman


Router said "Success" and gone to reboot (btw, nvram reset option was enabled at each upgrade). After that router is bricked (Orange power flash, no pings, 30-30-30 doesn't helps). I know that now I need USB-TTL cable and so on. The Question is - Why does it happend? What was wrong?
