Beaglebone AI: Wifi Access Point not visible

After making some updates to the 10.3 Debian TiDL image I can not longer see the wifi access point visible for the beaglebone ai. I believe this is due to the bb-bbai-tether service not running correctly. When I try to execute bb-bbai-tether on the command line this is the output:

bbai:wlan0:Power Management:off
bbai:tether [ip link set dev SoftAp0 down]
bbai:tether [ip link set dev SoftAp0 address 28:EC:9A:EA:77:C2]
bbai:tether [ip link set dev SoftAp0 up]
Configuration file: /tmp/hostapd-bbai.conf
Could not set channel for kernel driver
Interface initialization failed
SoftAp0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->DISABLED
SoftAp0: AP-DISABLED
SoftAp0: Unable to setup interface.
SoftAp0: interface state DISABLED->DISABLED
SoftAp0: AP-DISABLED
SoftAp0: CTRL-EVENT-TERMINATING
hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface SoftAp0 wasn’t started
nl80211: deinit ifname=SoftAp0 disabled_11b_rates=0

Just wondering if anyone can provide any assistance to getting my wifi access point back up and running.

Regards

Which Linux kernel version did you update too? uname -r

Linux beaglebone 4.14.108-ti-r144 #1xross SMP PREEMPT Wed Dec 20 09:04:42 AEDT 2023 armv7l GNU/Linux

Still on the same kernel version. Just made some modifications to device tree and some other seemingly benign changes.

Okay, same major release. The cypress driver we have to make SoftAp0 work is kinda a pain. As long as you don’t touch the sdio/sdhc bus it’s attached to in the device tree, it shouldnt stop.
