Hi,

I need to flash Loco5

I think that I can use your instructions on it

http://nightwing.lugro-mesh.org.ar/en/doc/howto_build_image_for_PicoStation2.html

but change the file lx2-8.txt

n apps/gpl/mkfwimage/src generate this file lx2-8.txt with this content:
kernel 0x01 0xA8030000 0x000D0000 0x80041000
0x80041000 nightwing_v0.6beta4-vmlinux.lzma
rootfs 0x02 0xA8100000 0x006C0000 0x00000000
0x00000000 nightwing_v0.6beta4-root.squashfs

OK, this is the instructions to flash Loco5

http://www.zapbas-saint-laurent.org/routers/How_To_build_an_image_of_Nightwing_for_the_Ubiquiti_LocoStation5.htm

but the red light is always open ? (third led)

do you have some idea for this problem

Hi,

I need to flash Loco5

By default, OpenWrt generates the image for the Ubiquiti devices that use XS5 and have 4MB of flash memory (NS5, NS Loco5, etc). Did you try with this image?

It's called openwrt-atheros-ubnt5-squashfs.bin

The node's operation mode (client or gateway) can't be selected manually. That would break the idea of the  autoconfiguration of Nightwing.

But you can hack it by adding:
Code:
$MODE=gateway or $MODE=client

before
Code:
case $MODE in
in /etc/init.d/nightwing

OK I used it

In apps/gpl/mkfwimage/src create this file lx5-4.txt with this content:

ATTENTION: It is not space between the code, it is tab
kernel   0x01      0xBE030000        0x000D0000       0x80041000        0x80041000        openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma
rootfs   0x02      0xBE100000        0x002C0000        0x00000000        0x00000000        openwrt-atheros-root.squashfs
 and this command

./mkfwimage -i lx5-4.txt -v XS5.ar2313.OpenWRT-kamikaze -o nightwing_zapbslbeta2_v0.6beta4-loco5-squashfs.bin

so, you say me that to try it with openwrt-atheros-ubnt5-squashfs.bin neither openwrt-atheros-root.squashfs ?

Yes, openwrt-atheros-ubnt5-squashfs.bin already contains the kernel and the rootfs.

Ok, it's detected automatically if the nanostation is a gateway or client !

we have Just to point the client nanostation to nanostation gateway ?

Ok, I tried to flash the location5 with openwrt-ubnt5 image but the system AirOS detected bad firmware

Loco5 have this platform Atheros SOC, MIPS 4KC @ 180MHz  (same as Pico2, Pico5, Loco2, Bullet2, Bullet5) and Nanostation5 this one Atheros AR2315 @ 180mhz

It is not the same platform and I created image

lx5-4.txt

kernel   0x01      0xBE030000        0x000D0000       0x80041000        0x80041000        openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma
rootfs   0x02      0xBE100000        0x002C0000        0x00000000        0x00000000        openwrt-atheros-root-squashfs

./mkfwimage -i lx5-4.txt -v XS5.ar2313.OpenWRT-kamikaze -o nightwing_zapbslbeta2_v0.6beta4-loco5-squashfs.bin

XS5.ar2313

The system AirOS accepted this firmware

All seems good

I Can access in SSH root, nw_conf etc…

The server wifidog detect this locostation5 but the only one problem that is the red light (third led) is always open, why ?

I flashed pico2 and it’s ok, it’s work fine

OK, I reflashed my Loco 5 with XS5.ar2313.v3.4.4390.090521.1803.bin from UBIQUITI

After, I tried to flash from web admin AirOS with your firmware

http://nightwing.lugro-mesh.org.ar/download/0.6/nightwing_v0.6beta4-ubnt5-squashfs.bin

and AirOS give this message "Bad firmware image"

What are you suggest now ?
