There are apparently several regional versions of the OEM firmware. You may have to adjust the region in u-boot first. Below is example of a successful region change and flash procedure. Source: forum article
This is how to do it from serial console:
tftp server(receive) go, waiting:4[sec] ... Load address: 0x84000000
For myself the above procedure did not work as during the power cycle the network reset the ARP info. So to combat this
→ Basic configuration After flashing, proceed with this.
Set up your Internet connection, configure wireless, configure USB port, etc.
Press the 'USB/eject' button while the red 'DIAG' LED is blinking to enter Failsafe mode.
If you want to trigger a LED as soon as an USB-Device is connected to your USB-Port, add this to /etc/config/system:
This switches on the little red circle of the DIAG-LED everytime you connect something to your USB-Port.

→flash.layout has an example flash layout and all explanations required to understand this. Here the naked hex-values for the WZR-HP-AG300H:
A collection of photos on how to open the case, of the PCB and the serial port can be found on https://picasaweb.google.com/111743287730172647732/BuffaloWZRHPAG300HHardwarePhotos .
→ port.serial general information about the serial port, serial port cable, etc.
How to connect to the Serial Port of this specific device:
For USB/Serial I used a B&B Electronics TTL convertor with a ATEN UC232A. The VCC is not needed. Don't forget TX on the TTL goes to RX on the PCB etc. CuteCom on Linux works great (if you chmod 777 /dev/ttyUSB0)

How to connect to the JTAG Port of this specific device:
