ubnt rocket m5 install lede?

There is someone who could install on a rocket ubnt version lede (openwrt)? How do?

I don't see it listed in the table of hardware https://openwrt.org/toh/start?dataflt[Brand*~]=ubiquiti

https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Ubiquiti_Networks_Rocket_M2_Titanium (assuming that is your specific model) suggests that there is some possiblity for someone to develop support, but is not very encouraging the way I read it

There is an Atheros AR7370 inside the device. .. but it is fully program compatible with AR9344, and it shows it in the processor data. It would seem to be another Wasp-series SoC, perhaps w/ Wi-Fi capability (and maybe the FE switch) omitted.

The FCC docs for this device are not exceedingly useful - the internal photos are perma-confidential.

The OpenWRT page for the similarly marketed Bullet is https://openwrt.org/toh/ubiquiti/bullet where it states

Note that OpenWrt should work on the Bullet M2 (2GHz), but someone on the ubnt forum says it will not work on the M5 (5GHz). https://community.ubnt.com/t5/airOS-SDK-Custom-Development/Alternatives/td-p/599999

It being an 8/32 device, you will likely have problems with RAM, if not flash memory.

Well, there are OpenWrt images available for some "rocket":

...but that's all I know. No clue if these are for rocket m5 or something else.
One of few devices not listed in the ToH.


Some more info: https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/openwrt.git;a=commit;h=cfc5867bce36542a7176f798e63c35f7a0aa5867

Compile tested on: ar71xx (Rocket M5, Mikrotik RB2011)
Runtime tested on: ar71xx (Rocket M5, Mikrotik RB2011)

So yes, there must be some way to install OpenWrt on Rocket M5.

https://openwrt.org/toh/ubiquiti/airmaxm lists Rocket M5 (amongst others). Maybe the TFTP flash instructions are also applicable to the Rocket M5.

Since the Bullet M is also listed on the Airmax page linked above, maybe https://openwrt.org/toh/ubiquiti/bullet is worth reading too.
