 +====== Ubiquiti Bullet M2 ======
 +[[meta:​template_device]]
 +
 +===== Firmware Install =====
 +
 +Do not flash a device that has AirOS firmware beyond v.5.5.10 or you will brick your device! You must first revert to [[http://​dl.ubnt.com/​firmwares/​XN-fw/​v5.5.10/​XM.v5.5.10.24241.141001.1649.bin|version 5.5.10]] and then flash OpenWrt [[https://​community.ubnt.com/​t5/​airOS-SDK-Custom-Development/​5-6-2-TFTP-ERROR/​m-p/​1307614/​highlight/​true#​M2349]]. If you've already bricked your device, you may try to recover it [[https://​community.ubnt.com/​t5/​airOS-SDK-Custom-Development/​AirMAX-Device-Firmware-Recovery-Procedure/​m-p/​1499583/​highlight/​true#​M2499]].
 +
 +Note that OpenWrt should work on the Bullet M2 (2GHz), but someone on the ubnt forum says it will not work on the M5 (5GHz). [[https://​community.ubnt.com/​t5/​airOS-SDK-Custom-Development/​Alternatives/​td-p/​599999]]
 +
 +To flash an already running bullet with original firmware (AirOS) on CLI, you must do this:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +ssh root@yourbullet
 +url="​http://​downloads.openwrt.org/​snapshots/​trunk/​ar71xx"​
 +url="​$url/​openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-bullet-m-squashfs-factory.bin"​
 +
 +wget -O /​tmp/​fwupdate.bin "​$url"​
 +/​usr/​sbin/​fwupdate -m
 +</​code>​
 +
 +===== Firmware Install Ubnt Recovery Method =====
 +
 +
 +If you prefer TFTP, than you can update via holding down the reset-button for 10 seconds on startup, and send the firmware to 192.168.1.20\\
 +See ->​[[doc:​howto:​generic.flashing]] or ->​[[doc:​howto:​generic.flashing.tftp]] for instructions.
 +
 +http://​wiki.ubnt.com/​Firmware_Recovery
 +
 +===== Redboot =====
 +
 +If the bullet firmware was changed using Fon Flash using files ...atheros-root.squashfs and ...atheros-vmlinux.lzma the Redboot will have been changed. The result will be that the ubnt recovery method will no longer work. 
 +
 +To fix connect to your router using a serial cable and change the redboot to the below config. ​
 +
 +
 +<​code>​
 +RedBoot> fconfig -l
 +</​code>​
 +
 +<​code>​
 +Run script at boot: true
 +Boot script:
 +.. cache off
 +.. fis load -d -e kernel
 +.. go
 +
 +Boot script timeout (1000ms resolution):​ 1
 +Use BOOTP for network configuration:​ false
 +Gateway IP address: 0.0.0.0
