How to open the Ubiquiti Bullet M2

I was trying to get OpenWRT working on my Bullet M2, but was having issues. So I heard there was a serial port on the board that you can use to grab debug information. I proceeded to open the sucker up, and at first was doing it wrong.

The proper way is by taking the ring off near the N connector for the antenna. I used some vice grips and it came off rather easily with some muscle. Here’s a photo with the ring circled in red. ;D

Once the ring is off, you simple push the N connector and the board will slide out of the enclosure.

Now all you need to do is connect a MAX232 TTL Converter to the following pins.

I haven’t found a good TTL to RS232 converter that has decent cables. There are some but I’ve yet to research them fully. You also need the proper pinout, which I don’t know yet so if you have a solution for both please post a comment. Thanks!

You can read more about the acquisition on the MySQL blog of Kaj Arno about the acquisition of MySQL by Sun Microsystems. My take, with Sun releasing Solaris into the Open Source realm, this is just another piece of software that they can put under their belt and package with Solaris. I have included some blurbs from Kaj Arno's blog below.
