1. Download the OpenWrt initramfs-image. Place it into a TFTP server
   root directory and rename it to 1401A8C0.img. Configure the TFTP
   server to listen at

2. Connect the TFTP server to the access point.

3. Connect to the serial console of the access point. Attach power and
   interrupt the boot procedure when prompted (bootdelay is 1 second).

4. Configure the U-Boot environment for booting OpenWrt from Ram and

   $ setenv boot_openwrt 'setenv bootargs; bootm 0xbf080000'
   $ setenv ramboot_openwrt 'setenv serverip;
     tftpboot; bootm'
   $ saveenv

5. Load OpenWrt into memory:

   $ run ramboot_openwrt

   Wait for the image to boot.

6. Transfer the OpenWrt sysupgrade image to the device. Write the image
   to flash using sysupgrade:

   $ sysupgrade -n /path/to/openwrt-sysuograde.bin
