Ubiquiti NanoStation Loco M2 XM

I have an old Nanostation Loco M2.
I installed 10.03.1 on it and it is working fine.
I would like to build a custom minimal firmware (without Lucy, unneeded kernel modules, etc...)

I see that 10.03.1 seem to be the latest supported version for the Loco M2 XM boards. Is that correct?
Is there a way to build /assemble later versions for Loco M2 XM? Should I just build an XM Nanostation (non-Loco) and use it?


There are nanostation-loco-m (non XW) builds in the ath79 release directory, I would try this one: http://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/19.07.2/targets/ath79/generic/openwrt-19.07.2-ath79-generic-ubnt_nanostation-loco-m-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

TFTP recovery direct to an OpenWrt "factory" image is possible with the old bootloader. Do not flash to a new version of AirOs that may replace the bootloader with a locked down one.

You do have to be careful of running out of RAM, but so far installing a release build then disabling uhttpd and odhcpc leaves enough space for basic operations.

I will give it a shot, I intend on building my own firmware with very minimal packages.
