Ubiquiti Edgerouter ERX SFP on APIPA address after openwrt tar file install.

Just attempted to install openwrt on an ERX SFP, after following a YouTube video on how to install the .tar file, the router could reboot but upon attempting to access the GUI , it throws me an APIPA address. How do I go about getting it out of apipa and into standard IP ranges (192.168.x.x)?

Tried reboot and using a paper clip to push the reset button. No dice on that end. Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: don’t think that it is bricked as when I set my network dongle adapter to DHCP it gives me a apipa address with IPV6 dns server
