UAP Outdoor + Firmware 3.1 to 3.3 upgrade path? Cannot update.

I'm having trouble upgrading a Unifi UAP-Outdoor+, and nothing I've found so far has helped, hence asking here.

 

I had it offline for a while (it works, but just was isolated form the controller). I've upgraded the controller (several times), and the controller is currently running 4.8.14.

 

The AP is running firmware from a (long) while ago (3.1.10.2519), and I can't get it to upgrade. Trying to get the 3.3.19.4015 firmware to take, I can't.

 

I tried via controller upgrade (Layer 3)

I tried forgetting and re-adopting

I tried setting to default settings and re-adopting

I tried manually upgrading via CLI (SSH)

I tried setting to default settings and manually upgrading via CLI (SSH)

I've even done TFTP reflash.

 

Still nothing.

Model:       UAP-Outdoor+
Version:     3.1.10.2519
MAC Address: 24:a4:3c:xx:xx:xx
IP Address:  192.168.1.20
Hostname:    UBNT
Uptime:      818 seconds

Status:      Unable to resolve (http://unifi:8080/inform)

Unable to resolve is fine (as it's plugged in locally to my laptop after the TFTP flash), but no matter what I try, I'm unable to upgrade beyond 3.1.10.

 

Is there anyone with any thoughts as to what I've missed (or what I could try). Is there some transitional firmware version I need to upgrade to, before I can get to the new version? If so, help! I'm happy to update it manually (it's out of service now, and I am just upgrading on my bench, so that's simple.

 

EDIT: I noticed the timestamp on busybox - is that the compile date of the kernel, or is it the device time right now? Is there some error when the timestamp of a firmware version is newer than the AP internal system clock??

 

Any thoughts welcome.

 

Thanks in advance.

OK, For those playing at home...

 

I got it. Still not sure why the TFTP upload wasn't working, but I used the SSH upgrade and (finally) realised I needed to rename firmware.bin to fwupdate.bin

 

after that:

 

 upgrade /tmp/fwupdate.bin

works fine.

 

I'm now happilly on the latest firmware.

I also have same problem, but cannot upgrade version 3.2 to 3.3

 

This is error I get using SCP terminal command:

AP Outdoor Controller version wrong.png

 

This is the correct driver to use, right?

Hello @alfredhong,

 

How exactly are you running these commands?

You have to run this command in a SSH session.

Re: UAP Outdoor + Firmware 3.1 to 3.3 upgrade path? Cannot update.

Hi Glenn, 

 

At first I downloaded the firmware to tmp folder and tried:

ssh command upgrade tmp\fwupdate.bin  did not work.

 

then I tried:

upgrade https://dl.ubnt.com/unifi/firmware/U2HSR/4.0.9.9636/BZ.ar7240.v4.0.9.9636.181128.2215.bin 

and worked. 

 

Thanks
