The wiki says  that for Ubnt NS Loco M5 (build in the year 2014)
someone has to use the **xw** firmware like
But this do not work for my model with "Test date: 01/24/14", which
came with AirOS V 5.5.7.
Yes, after flashing there is OpenWRT on the box, but it is not booting
properly. Cause of my lacking knowledge I do not know how to debug or
offer a better explanation. I found some forum rumors which indicate
that OpenWRT will not finish the boot procedure, but there where no
I was able to flash back to the original ubnt firmware  via tftp.
At first I had tested BB 14.07 and later found that **xw** support
just came with r42549. So I tried the current trunk snapshot, but with
the same not working result.
Can someone please give me a hint how to debug, or how to get OpenWRT
working on a /brand new/ NanoStation Loco M5?
Also has someone experience how the apply a serial adapter to the
board, I was unable to find any information for these new boards. If
someone can say where to put TX, RX and GND I can put an adapter to
it, and can provide a boot log - but I'm to scared to just try it ;)
This board has no jtag/serial 10 pin thingsy like the Loco M2, but 4
'holes' which look like these on boards like tp-link wr841/wr1043.
(Sorry I dont no how to call it in english).
Best regards and thanks for any help,
