The 3502's are already lightweight.

You can't use the tool! Take a look at this doc.

Thanks for your quick reply. I knew that I cannot use that tool. Could you suggest the solution to do it?

it's the same as you I'd to convert it to autonomous. Just download the recovery image and perform the same steps. If you console into the ap and hold the mode button down then power the ap up, while holding the mode button for 20 seconds and releasing the button, you will see from the output what filename you need to rename the recovery image.

You will tftp the same as you did when you converted that to autonomous.

Here is an older post which explains another way to convert the AP. It's for a different model, but same procedure.
