All you need to do is access the web interface on and flash through that, it will work as I've done it before.  Make sure you use the latest trunk or CC factory image.

I can confirm though you can still flash openwrt using the factory image in the web interface.  The other option which I haven’t tested but it may possibly work is to scp the sysupgrade image to /tmp/ on the ubnt device and then use mtd to write directly.
Ah, I have been downgrading via the web interface to 5.5.10, then upgrading to OpenWrt from the web interface, but I don't have many to deal with.

Can you downgrade to XM v.5.5.11 via tftp and then flash OpenWrt from there?
