Ubiquiti LiteAP ac: factory.bin instead of initramfs.bin

@guifipedro You have changed the dataentry of the Ubiquiti LiteAP ac from initramfs-kernel.bin to factory.bin.
The dataentry currently refers to the git commit for installation instructions, which now must be wrong since the git commit instructions refer to the initramfs-kernel.bin.

Do you have updated installation instructions for the factory.bin?

Hi @tmomas,

right now I flashed a LiteAP following the nanostation ac procedure [1]

I thought factory information was incorrect because initramfs-kernel is an image for developers according to [2]. But you are right, commit message describes a method using that image

It is strange to see "factory image" and the initramfs one. The procedure I used is more simple and easier to follow because you do not need serial nor opening the case (and breaking warranty)

@tmomas I also think the thing is not clearly documented in the wiki, right? maybe a wiki article is missing for https://openwrt.org/toh/hwdata/ubiquiti/ubiquiti_liteap_ac_lap-120 right? And we should explain both methods

If you are up for it, you can create a devicepage for the LiteAP ac:
