LiteBeam 5AC GEN2 (US version vs. Worldwide), which is what?

[ Edited ]



Recently discovered LBE-5AC-GEN2 device as a solution for one of my needs. Unfortunately in my country we have no authorized reseller or any distributor of Ubiquiti products, however I can use third parties services to get items from such e-stores as Amazon and so. I was ready to place my order but noticed that LBE-5AC-GEN2 comes in two versions, for US, and for Worldwide use.

My question is the diversification touches only software part of the device or that is a hardware differences? 

If I buy LBE-5AC-GEN2-US and while installing chose a region different from US, will the device operate as Worldwide version? I read from airOS manual that US version has region options limited to Canada  Puerto Rico and US. 


Or is there a chance to flash a worldwide firmware into LBE-5AC-GEN2-US?

No, -US models are hardware locked and only support USA/Canada and Puerto Rico.
