-Power cycle the device while you keep the reset button pushed. Leds will start to blink red and yellow.+^ Version/Model ^ Launch Date ^ OpenWrt Version Supported ^ Chip ^ 
 +| xm | -    | 10.03 | ar724x | 
 +| xw | 2014 | 14.07 | ar9342 |
-Then tftp the image to 192.168.1.20 following the instructions at the [[:doc:howto:generic.flashing.tftp#bootloader.contains.tftp.server|Installing OpenWrt via TFTP]] page.+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 [[http://www.ubnt.com/download#NanoStation:M5|firmware page]] devices use **xw** firmware image, while older use **xm** image. 
 + 
 +==== Installation procedure ==== 
 + 
 +You can install the *-factory image over the webinterface or via tftp rescue. 
 +Webinterface default address is http://192.168.1.20
 + 
 +To enter tftp rescue mode power cycle the device while keep the reset button pushed (for ~10 sec). Leds will start to blink red and yellow. 
 +<code> 
 +# pick an address in the range 192.168.1.1-254 for your network device 
 +# tftp 192.168.1.20 
 +tftp> bin 
 +tftp> trace 
 +# depending on your version **xm** or **xw** 
 +tftp> put openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-nano-m-squashfs-factory.bin 
 +tftp> put openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-nano-m-xw-squashfs-factory.bin 
 +</code>

 +==== POE passtrough ==== 
 + 
 +^ gpio ^ version ^ 
 +| 8 | xm | 
 +| 2 | xw | 
 + 
 +In CLI this will work to change the poe pass trough instantly without rebooting or waiting for config to apply. [[https://www.mail-archive.com/openwrt-devel@lists.openwrt.org/msg04606.html|Email]] from development mailing list. 
 + 
 +to switch the poe pass trough on use this: 
 + 
 +<code> 
 +# nanostation xm 
 +echo 8 > /sys/class/gpio/export 
 +echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio8/direction 
 +echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio8/value 
 +# disable with echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio8/value 
 +</code> 
 + 
 +<code> 
 +# nanostation xw 
 +echo 2 > /sys/class/gpio/export 
 +echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio2/direction 
 +echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio2/value 
 +# disable with echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio2/value 
 +</code>
