[BETA Release] Firmware 3.0

69 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

It's that time of year again and as you might imagine were very excited for DEF CON. We've been busy working on new features for Buffalo Bulldozer and amidst development we've generated a mostly feature complete (sans DIP switches) and stable port of the 6th generation WiFi Pineapple firmware for the Mark V. Flashing to and from this beta release will require a manual sysupgrade from the console (see commands below). Thank you all for your patience and continued support of the project - we're excited as always to see ever more creativity among the community.

We hope you enjoy this release!
-The WiFi Pineapple Team

Flashing:

In firmware 3.0.0 this is not a default (neither was it on the MK5). There is currently no way to do it via the webinterface. You can of course modify your /etc/config/network file.

WOW this is EXCELLENT news for me !!! I am so excited as I am going to TRY to use my PineappleV properly this time.  If I reset to factory default and then run the update from the existing web interface tile  will I get this release please OR do I have to do it via ssh?

thanks

The only way to flash this firmware is using the steps provided in the original post (via SSH).

So I did this and was expecting an auto mount for sd1 base on fstab

config 'mount'
    option    target        '/sd'
    option    device        '/dev/sdcard/sd1'
    option    fstype        'auto'
    option    options        'rw,sync'
    option    enabled        '1'

It did not auto-mount after I re-formatted the card for sd1 (or before after init FW flash).   sd1 is in the dev

Ohhhh yes!!! :cool:

Installation was no problem so far. The SD-Card works also for me without any problems.

Going to test the beta these days.

Thanks to the complete team for this update!

Updated with no problems. Formatted the SD card, connected as client, installed modules - all went well. Now I have to learn about the new interface. Thank you all so much for not leaving us Mark V users out in the cold!!!

Question regarding this beta version – I assume this is the right place to post feedback? As to the feedback, pardon me if this is a Noob question/feedback:

Prior to this released I used the Mark V Pineapple using Ethernet and ICS. I now want to use both WLAN interfaces with this new release and I’m getting a strange result. Under Network when I boot fresh, I see wlan0 and wlan1. In the WiFi Client option drop down, I only see wlan1 (no wlan0 listed) and the note that using wlan1 will interfere with PineAP. Therefore, I assume wlan1 is the PineAP nic. Should I be able to see and select wlan0 for a WiFi client connection?

If I enable the PineAP daemon, wlan1 changes to wlan1mon (makes sense) but is still the only choice now available in the WiFi Client drop down. Wlan0 still shows in the WiFi Network config but never in the client drop down.

Shouldn’t I be able to use wlan1 as the PineAP and make a client connection over wlan0?

No, wlan0 is used to run the AP and is required for normal operation. Wlan1 is used for pineap or clientmode (not both). If you want pineap and wireless clientmode, you'll have to plug in a third supported radio.

The update was working great for me until I rebooted, now I'm just getting a faint solid red and blue led and a solid green led, won't do anything else, can't connect over eth0.

 

EDIT:  ok i feel stupid now, reset all my dip switches and everything is good!  Awesome update, thanks guys!

I am a linux noob so please don't laugh. I have ssh'd in the PineV and want to scp the bin from the linux box ( toby) to the /tmp dir on the pV  So after hunting around for how to use scp I found the following approach.

login to toby getting ip address 100.100.100.1 (fake ip but mean one assigned by pineV)

cd / folder where bin file is

ssh to pineV as root

on pineV enter

scp toby@100.100.100.1:bin file  /tmp

I get permission denied on port 22

where am I going wrong?

I can't make any promises, sorry. When and if I get time, I will try to keep this firmware updated, but it will probably never receive OTA upgrades.

It don't matter with the OTA updates, just a final blessing firmware like when the MK4 ended as i have it also with the final 2.8.1 which is good no problems.

The 3.0.0 firmware above is actually stable and doesn't seem to have any major bugs apart form the fact that there is no way to configure DIP switches. It will get the module updates the NANO gets to fix any minor webinterface bugs automatically.

i have tried using a tplink usb nic on the old firmware and never had luck getting the drivers to make it work, is their a special brand i need or does this firmware support more usb nic's? i'd test it out but my dongle is in a pc at a dif location
