I'm surprised that that AP uses the same image as the 1140, so you did have the right file, jus not the right version I would of used.

Here are some links you can use for conversions. One is a video.

You can't use an 1142 image. You have to use an image that is for your maiden AP.

As long as you have a support contract or you are able to download this file, here is the file you would need.

You have a 1042, the code you have is for an 1142. Download the file from the link I posted and check the MD5 hash before you try to download it to your AP.

I would also try using the v12.4 as the v15 isn't that great. Many have complained about GUI not working and other stuff.
