Just to confirm -- did you unzip the files and find the R500 .bl7 file? Uploading the entire .zip file won't work -- it's an archive with the firmwares for all the APs supported by that release.

Thanks john!, i forgot that little detail!! it ́s wornking now in mode autonomous.

Additionally please do not make a mistake and flash an AP with the wrong firmware if you are moving from a SZ to standalone, as it will brick the AP; it does not do any internal checks on the file as of yet when moving between platforms.

If you get an error after an upgrade (it's been known to happen) do a MD5 on the file that you downloaded:
CertUtil -hashfile C:\Users\username\Downloads\yourfile.bl7 MD5
Note: Ruckus have stopped posting the MD5 checksum values for zipped files, so you may have to contact support to verify the MD5 value.
