Trying to understand current status of the device and installing the Mesh updates.  If the version isv5.6.2 (XM) with the latest boot version has a upgrade been created to allow using the currently sold device?

Hi Darrell, I'm in the same situation. I have an M2 with XM v5.6.2 I've tried tftp to flash it with v5.3.x so far without success. I'm not even sure if this should be possible or not. I've had a look around to see if this is possible, but get rather lost in the 'noise', hi. 73 David

I found xm.v.5.5.11.28002.150723.1344.bin  and was unable to get that loaded.

I am also using NanoStation M2's and here is what I did ... Downgrade the factory firmware to 5.5.11 using TFTP. (You MUST use TFTP to do this). Once 5.5.11 is loaded and working, you can use the firmware upgrade tool in the web admin console.

VE3OY Could you tell us which settings you used? I've used tftp & tftpd previously, succesfully, on Cisco phones, but getting nowhere with this, with the 5.5.11 bashing away for extended periods. 73 David

well, progress of sorts, at least I see -something- happening. tftp'ing on linux ubuntu 16.04 laptop. 'putting' XM 5.5.11 to my M2 running XM 5.6.2 a couple of times results in 'error code 2, Firmware check failed'. I'm still studying all the stuff on this failure. 73 David

David,

You should read this (if you haven't already):

http://www.aredn.org/content/uploading-firmware-ubiquiti

I performed the TFTP from within windows, using the TFTP software that I found on that page.

One trick is to keep a constant PING going while the M2 is re-booting.

Example: PING -t 192.168.1.20

During the re-boot, the PING TTL will change from 100 to 64.

You need to start the TFTP while it is still showing a TTL of 100.

Waiting until the TTL is 64 will end up in failure.


Beyond that, the only issue that I'm aware of is if you have a M2 that falls into the "XW" category.

If you have a "XW" you'll need a different BIN file than the "XM" version M2.

You can see which version (XM/XW) you have by looking under the SYSTEM tab of v5.6.2,

which will show you the current firmware loaded and more importantly whether it is

a XM or XW version.


I have performed this recovery many times using this method.


Hope this info helps!

Cheers,

Matt

Matt, Thanks for your prompts. Got my M2 v5.6 flashed back to v5.5 and downloaded HSMM all via the GUI as per the AREDN website. 73 David
