Firmware of the MIKROTIK HAP Lite

Hi.
I am trying to change the firmware of the MIKROTIK HAP Lite.
I follow all the steps, and load Arend's firmware well (https://arednmesh.readthedocs.io/en/latest/arednGettingStarted/installin...). But when it is reset, it returns to the mikrotik firmware.
How can I solve the problem?
Regards.

ea7tb,   On occasion we are

ea7tb,   On occasion we are seeing RAM issues after the .bin image is copied up to the node.  It's intermittent, and I need to check the file system definition, as this 64Mb RAM device should still have plenty of RAM to work in.     Try the alternative instructions to copy up the .bin file, using the manual "sysupgrade" from command line.  I always go this route because if errors are reported, they can be seen with this command line.

Mirotik Router HAP AC lite Just in.

I'm a real Noob when it comes to IT stuff. I'm trying to read the router. I have it plugged directly into the laptop Ethernet port. IF I try 192.168.88.20 or 192.168.88.1 or any other IP. I can't read it.  If I plug it into my home router. It shows as 192.168.0.32. I'm lost. I have downloaded the Aredn ELF and Bin files.

Update. PXESER

I remember I downloaded that PXESER file on my main desktop. I sent the file to my laptop. I may have be too quick in pulling the plug. The file *.ebf was not loaded. I'm trying to reload but server won't connect on the laptop. No matter how may times I do power and Reset.

I'm trying to reload but server won't connect on the laptop.

In the Mikrotik first install AREDN firmware upgrade, the Mikrotik device becomes the client and your computer is the DHCP and TFTP server.
The DHCP and TFTP server (computer) is started first.
With the reset button on the Mikrotik pressed and held, power is applied to the Mikrotik.
When the server displays that the firmware has started its transfer, the 'reset' button may be released.
After the Mikrotik reboots, the Mikrotik will be a DHCP server with temporary AREDN firmware in RAM.
You should (re)set your computer to be a DHCP client and move the ethernet cable to port 2 or 3 or 4 on the Mikrotik.
Browse to 192.168.1.1 and upload the .bin using the Administration page.

I hope this helps,
Chuck

When I log into just the router. No ISP attached. I saw 192.168.1.1 I was able to get into the router. 

I know about the Bin but I expected to see AREDN when I went to 192.168.1.1. I'm going load up a Linux box instead of a Windows box. It's the internet access if I just have the router on. If my home router on. I don't see 192.168.1.1. 
 
I have a lot to learn. 

I hope I didnèt see the EBF load.

Ubuntu Talking to Mikrotik Hap Ac Lite

I was able to load the RB.elf file to the router. I switch to my Ubuntu machine. I see 192.168.88.1 and 192.168.88.254 in the settings. I think I have to create an IPv4 manual setting. I'm lost after that. I also copied the*.bin file to a flash drive. I can once my firefox browser can find the IP of the Mikrotik. I tried 192.168.88.1 and localnode.local.mesh doesn't work. Becoming root> is that sudo su? I'm using my cell phone to read the info on the Linux part and I'm even worse when it comes to IT router stuff. I have no access to the internet and I have to don't have vnc 

later back to trying to get it online
