After spending 8 hours up and down ladders 20 ft in the air at 40degC , my mood is fairly combattive.
This "update" system has possibly got to be the dumbest system on the planet, for location of reset hole, device fixing & software update.
when i do a 30-30-30 or any other cli factory reset, the wifi point comes up in stand alone mode. (factory mode)
i can log into the front-end web gui super/ sp-admin.... which is REAL flaky, sometimes it works most times not... but i can CLI reliably every time using the same login.
This was a failed zd1200, that required some wifi points whilst being serviced.. hence the unleashed when restoreing the unleashed, the firmware was flashed to all devices via the unleashed FW update. I strongly suspect this was the old "master"
I can navigate via various menus.. but NOTHING shows a way to re-flash an image..... other wise i would have done it already...... Compared to another R500 with the same firmware, there seems LESS menus.
there are no network connection issues, & whilst working on this device it is 1:1 to my compuer.
Once AP joins controller, firmware upgrade and other configuration options from AP GUI will not be available. This is as per design to prevent unwanted local upgrade/configuration which may cause outage.
In such conditions, you can always factory reset and upgrade the AP image using AP CLI (refer the article below).
