    Not sure how you got in that state, but I think it's not 'field recoverable' and the AP has to be replaced. It may be eligible for replacement under warranty.

    There is an option to zeroize the AP flash for secure disposal, which brings the AP in an state that cannot be recovered. Possibly that's what happened here, and I believe that it's not covered for free replacement if the AP has been zeroized.

    Good day,  Herman,

    Thank you for your quickly response.

    Have chance to get that ipq807x.ari file?

    I think can try, 

    in U-Boot,  DHCP (or set IP) and set tftp server with that ipq807x.ari

    install that ipq807x.ari can get back the AP-boot . 

    The problem is can't get this ipq807x.ari file.

    Thank you.

    If you have a controller already then you can use the controller as the TFTP target.  Can use DHCP to provision the AP with the controller IP address via DHCP option 43 configuration.

    Hi Chulcher, 

    Thank you for your answer.

    yes, use controller for TFTp target, can boot from ipq807x.ari file.

    just try it, but look that file is wrong, and try other all  .ari file, can't boot.

    What you have obtained is an engineering prototype, which is developed internally by Aruba and does not have the Aruba OS system installed.
    It cannot be upgraded to apboot for use through uboot.
