Nanostation Loco M2 lost admin password question

I configured an M2 as an AP.

I thought I had written down the new password for the device but apparently not.
I did however make a backup of the configuration file but need help decrypting the password portion.  I could reset the device to factory defaults and start over but I would like to avoid that if possible.
I was going to try john the ripper but Norton had numerous issues with that download Nono
I sent an email to Ubiguiti support 2 days ago but have not received a response.
Any assistance would be appreciated.  Thank you.

We do not decrypt passwords from configuration files. I recommend resetting this unit to default.
