GL-INET AR 150 w/ DD-WRT Load

Is there a way to migrate an AR 150 with DD-WRT firmware to AREDN?  I recently had a need for DD-WRT and migrated one of my AR-150 units from AREDN 1022 to DD-WRT.  Now I would like to migrate back to AREDN but can get the firware to load.  Suggests/advice is welcome.

Will the AR150 not accept the AREDN sysupgrade file?  How did you get it loaded in the first place?

Here is a list of the transitions:

1. Out of box with GL-iNET factory (OEM) firmware
2. I loaded 1022 AREDN nightly build and transitioned the 150 to AREDN and it worked great
3. I need a router with DD-WRT so I loaded DD-WRT into the unit (running AREDN 1022) and transitioned the 150 to DD-WRT (note - node would not take the DD-WRT .bin as named from DD-WRT so I renamed the DD-WRT .bin to match the AREDN .bin name.  Then it loaded DD-WRT).

I no longer have need for the DD-WRT and would like to return the unit to AREDN.  However, the device (DD-WRT firmware) will not accept the AREDN .bin.  Unit keeps resetting back to DD-WRT.

i'm pretty sure the Gl-inet

i'm pretty sure the Gl-inet bootloader has a recovery mode that should take AREDN.   Check the gl-inet site for "recovery mode" instructions (or similar).

Thanks

I was able to get back to AREDN with GL-iNet's UBOOT mode and stepped up from original firmware to AREDN.  Next step - mount the node on my drone.
