[OpenWrt-Devel] Ubiquiti Nanostation LOCO M5

I just got 5 LOCO M5 units that won't run OpenWRT. They are datestamped 
1422K; when I try to flash them, they give me:

received ERROR <code=2, msg=Firmware check failed>

I am using the Bullet M image 
(openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-bullet-m-squashfs-factory.bin), flashing 
with tftp in binary mode.

I have one other LOCO M5 with datestamp 1340K that works fine - flashes 
fine every time. But the new units won't take the firmware at all.

I assume UBNT did something in the bootloader that is disabling OpenWRT.

Any help will be welcome. I can open one up and attach a serial cable, 
but I'm not sure what I'd look for or what I'd do about it...
