Re: Trying to upgrade old Version of Unifi AP

Hello @StaticIP,

 

You can upgrade the UAP, I recommend upgrading it straight to 4.0.30 with a HTTP URL.

For your UniFi AP it would be the URL below.

http://dl.ui.com/unifi/firmware/BZ2/4.0.30.10217/BZ.ar7240.v4.0.30.10217.190402.2213.bin

I recommend using one of the upgrade commands below.

 

For the controller follow this upgrade path. ( take a backup )

 

4.8.20 > 5.0.6 > 5.2.9 > 5.3.8 > 5.4.11 > 5.5.20 > 5.6.40 > 5.8.30 > 5.9.29 > 5.10.23

 

Upgrade commands.

 

curl <fimware_binary_link_location> -o /tmp/fwupdate.bin && fwupdate.real -m &
wget <fimware_binary_link_location> -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin && fwupdate.real -m &
curl <firmware_binary_link_location> -o /tmp/fwupdate.bin
syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &
wget <firmware_binary_link_location> -O /tmp/fwupdate.bin
syswrapper.sh upgrade2 &

Hello @StaticIP,

 

A upgrade from 4.8.18 straight to 5.9.29 might break your controller, thats why I recommend the upgrade steps....

You can use my Easy Update Script after upgrading to 5.0.7. ( Linux/UCK/UAS )

Hello @StaticIP,

 

Than just download the windows installers and upgrade?

The upgrade path is in one of my previous posts.
