nanoBTS reset procedure

This tutorial is for those who need to reset their nanoBTS units for redeployment.

Originally each nanoBTS unit comes with a little reset dongle. But the dongle isn’t very special – it is just a proprietary connector with pins 9-10 connected to each other.

A screwdriver can do the exactly same thing, all you need to do is to short out pins 9 and 10 of the TIB-IN connector.
The TIB connectors of nanoBTS are a modified RJ69 connector. Refer to the following image for pin locations:

You need to short out the rightmost two pins of the plug.
