Cisco AP350 firmware update failed!

Whoops!!!

I was updating a AP350 to IOS 12.3 from the cisco AP OS that was on there previously (it has a name that i cant recall)

I used the AP350-Cisco-IOS-Upgrade-Image-v2.img as i had done countless times before (you then load the IOS tar file once that upgrade has completed) - however... after many hours i still had flashing red leds.

so yes, i rebooted it! Now it boots and hangs with all three leds on amber, and connecting via the console shows the following output on bootup:

Type '=' for main menu.              
------------------------------------------------------------

typing = shows:

c -- Copy file              
f -- File dir            
l -- downLoad file into DRAM                            
u -- Upload file                
p -- xfer Protocol                  
n -- coNsole            
r -- Run        
s -- System info.      

so it looks like i may be able to recover by transfering some images to the DRAM, but what do i need, and where can i get them??

thanks guys
