Hi there, thanks for the quick reply but isnt working.

root@Pineapple:/tmp# sysupgrade -n -v /tmp/AP51_ID_nb_r1600_ETSI.bin

Invalid image. Use combined .img files on this platform

Image check 'platform_check_image' failed.

any ideas?

Solution in case anybody wants it : Download http://uploading.com/files/3be927b2/Alfa-AP51-DD-WRT.zip , connect to pineapple through LAN. Unzip Alfa-AP51-DD-WRT.zip and cd into Alfa-AP51-DD-WRT directory then run "./ap51-flash-1.0-42 eth0 root.fs vmlinux.bin.l7 nvram". If it says no packet then just unplug router then plugin again. Should get a message about your IP and MAC then will start to upload.

The Alfa AP51 is the Mark III it uses a different flashing technique than the Mark IV.

DO NOT try and put the Mark IV firmware on the Mark III (AP51/OM1P models).

Firmware Mark III

If you are trying to turn your Mark III into it's normal router operation as it used to be, you will have to get the AP51 firmware from Alfa and flash that.
