 +***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.  ​

 It is possible to remotely press the reset button on M-series devices by briding the powerlines, Ubiquiti'​s 1 ampere power injector (the one with LAN LEDs) has a button that you can press that physically closes the reset button circuit. If you have the smaller power injector or a generic one, you can read http://​dren.dk/​mreset.html for more information about making your own reset button out of it. It is possible to remotely press the reset button on M-series devices by briding the powerlines, Ubiquiti'​s 1 ampere power injector (the one with LAN LEDs) has a button that you can press that physically closes the reset button circuit.
