How to Downgrade Ruckus T300 from Unleashed to Standalone

New Contributor III


I would like to know how to downgrade my ruckus T300 from unleashed mode to standalone mode.

I have the ruckus in the most recent unleashed firmware but now i want to do a test moving back to standalone mode.

I am trying to downgrade using CLI commands:




It starts to downloading the patch but after some seconds gives an error.

The standalone firmware that i am using its this one: T300_110.

The ruckus in unleashed mode looks weird because i cannot upgrade via the web browser does not show the AP.

Please disregard my comment above: I pasted in the wrong procedure.  This is the CLI procedure to update the Standalone firmware to another version of the Standalone firmware. 

To downgrade from Unleashed to Standalone, I did this according to my notes from a couple of weeks ago: 

1) Create a local control file called "fwctl"


2) Host on TFTP server in same directory as the firmware image

3) ssh <AP_IP_Address>

4) enable
5) ap-mode
6) fw set control fwctl
7) fw set proto tftp
😎 fw set host <TFTP_IP_Address>
9) fw update

10) ssh <AP IP address>

11) set factory

12) reboot

Sorry about the confusion above.  I hope this one works out for you instead.  🙂
