Yes, you just need to load a relevant software and you are good to go.

Yep, as Monnat Systems said, it's simply using the manual firmware update procedure in the UI, outlined at https://support.ruckuswireless.com/answers/000005193

Thanks for quickly response.

How does it?

Just factory-reset and upgrade to 100.x or ZD firmware?

Yep, that's correct. Hard reset the AP, connect to its Configure.Me-xxxx SSID just like during initial setup, then drop down the "More Info" box on the first page, and you'll see an Upgrade button for the firmware. Point it at a ZD or 100.x firmware, and it will convert to those.

Yes, you convert from the Unleashed image to Solo AP image (100.x) which can join/connect to either ZD or SZ platforms.

Unleashed platform does not need a controller, but has a Master AP with similar functionality to the Unleashed AP network.
