so I found out bootloop is caused by activation of Qualcomm Atheros
QCA9880 802.11nac (radio1) - 5 GHz wireless.
I tried using QCA988x firmware as well as the CT modifications, but
still it seems that with activation of ac radio, router goes to boot-loop.
So is the ath10k-firmware-qca988x broken maybe ?
Related config :
config wifi-device 'radio1'
option type 'mac80211'
option hwmode '11a'
option path 'pci0000:01/0000:01:00.0'
option htmode 'VHT80'
option country 'US'
option channel 'auto'
option txpower '30'
option device 'radio1'
option network 'lan'
option mode 'ap'
option key 'password'
option ssid 'aparcher'
option encryption 'psk-mixed+ccmp'
Confirmed on LEDE Reboot r1588+365 as well.
