Firmware Check Failed
« on: September 22, 2016, 03:39:54 am »
Hi,

I am trying to flash a Ubiquiti Nanostation Loco m2 and I keep getting the following error.

Error on Server : Firmware check failed.


I am trying to use openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-bullet-m-squashfs-factory.bin firmware.

Thanks

Hello

from openwrt wiki about ubiquiti airmax M:
Quote
Special Firmware Note: AirOS XM.v5.5.X images used U-Boot 1.1.4.2-s594 (Dec 5 2012 - 15:23:07). The OpenWRT image can be successfully flashed onto these versions of firmware. However, in July 2015 Ubiquiti released a new version of firmware XM.v5.6.X. With this firmware a new U-Boot version was released, U-Boot 1.1.4.2-s956 (Jun 10 2015 - 10:54:50). The newer U-Boot version changes the memory size and starting address for rootfs, cfg, and EEPROM. LOADING AN OPENWRT IMAGE ON A U-Boot 1.1.4.2-s956 WILL CAUSE THE DEVICE TO BE BRICKED!!!

If the device has XM.v5.6.X, an older version of XM firmware can be loaded from the AirOS webgui (for example XM.v5.5.10) and U-Boot will be overwritten with the older version. OpenWRT can then be loaded onto the device successfully.

You can download older firmware here:
