Advisory: Sophos XG Firewall - Antivirus service stopped due to failed pattern update. Please visit this KBA for the latest updates
This article describes the steps to recover bricked APs using the Flash Tool.
Applies to the following Sophos products and versions APX series: 120, 320, 530, 740 and AP series: 15, 15C, 55, 55C, 100, 100C, 100X
Note: If for some reason the Flash Tool was not successful in flashing an AP, there is a chance that the folder "Firmware" will get deleted. So be prepared to have a backup.
Depending on the AP model, it can have one or two boot partitions.
U-boot → boot <primary> → if failed boot <secondary> → if failed run recoverap
If the last step fails, then AP will reboot and follow the same process again.
