How to Extract UniFi AP firmware

Make sure you have binwalk installed

sudo apt install binwalk

Download the firmware from Ubiquiti’s website

https://ui.com/download/software/uap-ac-lite

We’ll need to extract the images a couple of times

binwalk -e 6.5.54.bin
cd ./_6.5.54.bin.extracted
binwalk -e 50FEE 
cd _50FEE.extracted/ 
binwalk -e 3C7CC4

The last binwalk will extract the actual file system.

cd _3C7CC4.extracted/cpio-root
