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.
 
.1.password=$1$nJN954A4$NG7gWPWw4BlbzX.thldga0users.1.
 
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.
