TX1 SoftAP possible?

According to the topic Setting up wifi Access Point on TX1
I was able to set up TX1 as a AP bridge from cable.
But I want to know if there is a possibility to make it as a soft AP since I had to configure the wifi as following:
Add the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/bcmdhd.conf:
options bcmdhd op_mode=2

After I configure the op_mode=2, I was not able to find any wifi signal on TX1.

I want to know if there is a way to set up SOFT AP which means only use the wifi chip onboard without using any other wireless network card.

For the wifi SoftAp issue, the easiest way we know for configuring SoftAP is this:

Setting op_mode=2 is still required with this method.
