|Warning! Currently Nanostation M5 models from 2014 aren't supported! If you try to flash them you will brick your device.|
From the beginning of 2014 Ubiquiti has released new model of Nanostaion M5 devices (old boards use ar724x chip while new ones are using ar934x chip).
New Ubiquiti Nanostation M5 firmware page devices use xv firmware image, while older use xm image.
The installation procedure is the same as for the old NanoStation 5 but you have to use this image:
Power cycle the device while you keep the reset button pushed. Leds will start to blink red and yellow.
Then tftp the image to 192.168.1.20 following the instructions at the Installing OpenWrt via TFTP page.
In CLI this will work to change the poe pass trough instantly without rebooting or waiting for config to apply. Email from development mailing list.
to switch the poe pass trough on use this:
echo 8 1 1 > /proc/gpio/system_led
to switch the poe pass trough off use this:
echo 8 1 0 > /proc/gpio/system_led
