FS#2223 - ar71xx Mikrotik RB952Ui-5ac2nD not detect board

Mikrotik RB952Ui-5ac2nD (hAP ac lite) not detect board vith boot the rb-nor-flash-16M-ac-initramfs-kernel.bin

The luci web interface is only available on the wan (1) port, port 5 is red.
When I try to update from rb-nor-flash-16M-ac-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin from luci, I get the error “The downloaded image file does not contain a supported format. Make sure you choose a common image format for your platform. "
Also tried using ssh, the image is not recognized.
Device unknown not supported by this image
Supported devices: rb-750-r2 rb-750up-r2 rb-750p-pbr2 rb-911-2hn rb-911-5hn rb-931-2nd rb-941-2nd rb-951ui-2nd rb-952ui-5ac2nd rb- 962uigs-5hact2hnt rb-lhg-5nd rb-map-2nd rb-mapl-2nd rb-wap-2nd rb-wapr-2nd rb-wapg-5hact2hnd

The boot image does not determine the fee, so I had to register it forcibly.
`root@OpenWrt:~# cat /tmp/sysinfo/board_name unknown`

If you force a card, it is flashed normally, but there is no switch configuration and port LEDs. WLAN 5g (QCA9887) does not work, USB does not have a power port, port 5 is lit red (gpio14) it turns off if the gpio value is 0

root@OpenWrt:~# echo “rb-952ui-5ac2nd” > /tmp/sysinfo/board_name
root@OpenWrt:~# cat /tmp/sysinfo/board_name rb-952ui-5ac2nd

I would like full support for this model, perhaps something is changed on the board.
More detailed studies I left here

Can you please run:

cat /proc/cpuinfo


cat /etc/board.json

and share the output?

I beleive the problem is that the new boards have different machine identification, they prepend RB to the model number.
Looks like same problem as:;a=commit;h=6570f3c93aa4110efd1466a6b89742c2e11d7c11 or

I think the extended match from previous commit should be extended to all these models.

Hi Jan,

This is the reason why I initially requested for the output mentioned above :)
