Hi Joe,

thanks for the help with testing, something like this could work:

 cd openwrt.git
 git remote add github-ynezz https://github.com/ynezz/openwrt.git
 git fetch github-ynezz
 git checkout -b nanostation-m-xw github-ynezz/wip/nanostation-m-xw
 echo -e "CONFIG_TARGET_ath79=y\nCONFIG_TARGET_ath79_generic=y\nCONFIG_TARGET_ath79_generic_DEVICE_ubnt_nano-m-xw=y" > .config
 make defconfig world -j$(nproc)

> The signature restriction for Ubiquiti is enforced in the AirOS UI.
> The bootloader does not check for signatures.   We routinely tftp
> images to all the newer UBNT devices based on, including
> latest models for NanoStation M2 XW. http://www.arednmesh.org

BTW, nice project! FYI, my Bullet M2HP running airOS v6.1.7 doesn't switch to
TFTP server mode even after pressing reset for 1 minute. What airOS version do
you've on you Nanostation units that it works for you?

This is my U-Boot 1.1.4-s1039 (May 24 2017 - 15:58:18)

Hm, I'm really wondering what version of airOS do you've on your devices, that
the TFTP recovery method works for you.
