New Feature: Downgrade your Airport’s firmware

Posted by on February 13, 2013 | Comments Off on New Feature: Downgrade your Airport’s firmware

New in the recently released Airport Utility 6.2 is the ability to downgrade your AirPort base station’s firmware quickly and easily from within the utility. This seems particularly fortunate in light of the reported bug in the latest firmware release (7.6.3), ¬†which breaks IPv6 tunneling according to reports.

If you hold down the “Option” key and click on the firmware version that shows up in the dialogue when you select a base station within the utility, you will be presented with a menu listing the available options, as well as the opportunity to use something “Other…”!
