On AirPrime SL808xT with Firmware 7.50.0.A1, firmware (SIERRA_OAT_FW_752_5_A5_2_FULL_sl808x)
should be upgraded before bootloader (SIERRA_BOOT_S188.8.131.52_sl808x), if .cwe or
.dwl files are used for upgrade. R7.52.5.A5.SL808x_201611030614_2.exe can be
used to recover AirPrime SL808xT in bad state.
