Convert AirCap 1602i Autonomous AP to Lightweight AP

I was able to successfully convert Lightweight 1602i AP to Autonomous AP as instructed in the https://supportforums.cisco.com/discussion/11751816/convert-1602i-lightweight-autonomous link.

I used tftpd server and downloaded ap1g2-k9w7-tar.default image to convert the Lightweight AP to Autonomous AP.

Now I need to convert my Autonomous AP to Lightweight.

But when I tried to upload a lightweight ap1g2-k9w8-tar.default image to the AP using the video tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQ_NuxdRhQ4 by holding the mode button, the AP still searches the same Autonomous AP ap1g2-k9w7-tar.default image. How can I get this thing to lightweight?

Trying to convert from Light

Trying to convert from Light weight recovery image to autonomous . There is an issue facing by me that AP is not able to extract image from tftp server. Physical connectivity is fine and cross checked. Don't know what is obstructing it from extracting the image.

This is the initial boot sequence from a Cisco AIR-CAP1602I-E-K9. For my setup, I just used an 8-port Cisco switch using default config (ports on VLAN 1) and static IP address 10.0.0.2/8 on my PC running TFTP server.

This is a sure way of getting the right IOS on the AP by first deleting the recovery image file and boot it up afterwards (just like a ROMmon in IOS router).
