  1. Just kicked off an upgrade via the Web UI, it flashed its blue LED away for a while, when it became mostly solid after several minutes, an open network "Pineapple_XXXX" showed up (not the secured SSID I had configured before the upgrade), I connected to it, nothing loads. Try to ping it, I get this error: Pinging with 32 bytes of data: PING: transmit failed. General failure. PING: transmit failed. General failure. PING: transmit failed. General failure. I recall having a similar issue last time I upgraded. That required going through this entire procedure: https://docs.hak5.org/hc/en-us/articles/360010471774-Firmware-Recovery Is there something wrong with my Nano that it keeps having this issue every time I upgrade FW? Update: I took the SD card out, and it proceeded to boot properly and go into first time setup. Is an upgrade supposed to wipe all configs? Might want to add a warning banner to the upgrade firmware page that an SD card can muck up the upgrade process horribly.
  2. Yeah, I realize I'm asking about super unsupported features here, but that's what a good hacker does, right? 😁 I've been using my Pineapple Nano as a "USB Tethering translator", acting as a EasyTether client (with a ET openwrt IPK installed) from my phone, then passing that internet connection on via the USB Eth port back to my PC, so that I don't need to install the EasyTether application on whatever PC I want to share it to. The Croc looks much more compact, and sounds like it would be a great replacement for my use case (so that I can reclaim the Nano for, you know, WIFI stuff!). Being able to experiment with AutoHotKey style macros is just icing on the cake! I'll keep a close eye on where @GlytchTech goes with stuff like that. Super awesome product here folks, I'll be picking one up shortly!
  3. @Darren Kitchen Also, you've basically created a sweet hardware AutoHotKey device! I'm thinking an awesome easy feature would be a macro keyboard "payload". Plug an extra keyboard in, even just a num pad, and you could have dedicated hot keys launch apps, or control media editing/playback, or trigger something like frequently used Photoshop key combos.
  4. Does the female USB host port support anything but keyboards? I understand from above reply nothing but keyboard passthrough to the target, but can you use other devices from the Croc's OS? I'm thinking flash drives, NICs, audio devices, etc.
  5. Gotcha, so I could probably tether a phone to the USB host port on the owl and share it's network over wifi, but nothing (data-wise from openwrt) connects back over the USB pigtail?
  6. Does the Owl provide a network interface to the PC it's plugged into like the Pineapple nano or lan turtle do? Does it run OpenWRT? If yes to both, I will pick one up to do network tethering with EasyTether, as the pineapple is sort of overkill for just that task.
  7. I often use my Nano USB tethered to my Android phone (for internet connection sharing) using the EasyTether app. They provide a openwrt driver package, but it depends on kmod-tun which does not seem to be available from either the Hak5 or openwrt package repos for firmware v2.6.0 I had to roll back to v2.5.4 because I will need that tethering ability this week. That Openwrt version's package repos has a copy of kmod-tun and thus the EasyTether package installs without any issues. Thoughts on how to fix this? I'd really like to upgrade back to 2.6.0 and try out all the new features.
  8. Hmm, also, the timezone setting in Configuration only seems to set the "Custom Time Zone" in /etc/config/system, where it should also put the custom string in /etc/TZ
  9. What are the change notes for version 2.4.1? Just updated today, and curious what changed. I didn't see a new [RELEASE] post. Also a couple of small issues: 1) I can't seem to get "live mode" working in recon scanning. The scanning GIF shows up, but the results never actually show anything until the scan is finished, then I click "Load" from the Scan results. 2) Are recon scans expected to continue running in the background if the client disconnects or refreshes the page? I ask, because I tried refreshing during a long scan and it seemed to indicated after reload that no scan was running. I then kept getting a red "Unknown Error" or "HTTP Error" box in the Scan Results and Scan settings progress bar if I tried to kick off another scan. Seems to happen about half the time. Requires a reboot of the Nano to clear it.
  10. I'm having the exact same issue with a few other modules. All recently installed kmods have landed in this older "3.18.20" directory, and those modules won't load root@PineappleVI:/lib/modules# pwd /lib/modules root@PineappleVI:/lib/modules# ls 3.18.20 3.18.36 root@PineappleVI:/lib/modules# ls 3.18.20 i2c-dev.ko input-core.ko uvcvideo.ko v4l2-common.ko videobuf2-core.ko videobuf2-memops.ko videobuf2-vmalloc.ko videodev.ko root@PineappleVI:/lib/modules# ls 3.18.36 aead.ko eeprom_93cx6.ko mii.ko ohci-hcd.ko scsi_mod.ko usb-storage.ko xt_hl.ko arc4.ko ehci-hcd.ko nf_conntrack.ko ohci-platform.ko sd_mod.ko usb_wwan.ko xt_id.ko asix.ko ehci-platform.ko nf_conntrack_ftp.ko option.ko sg.ko usbcore.ko xt_length.ko ath.ko ext4.ko nf_conntrack_ipv4.ko pl2303.ko sierra_net.ko usbnet.ko xt_limit.ko ath9k.ko fat.ko nf_conntrack_rtcache.ko ppp_async.ko slhc.ko usbserial.ko xt_mac.ko ath9k_common.ko gpio-button-hotplug.ko nf_defrag_ipv4.ko ppp_generic.ko sunrpc.ko vfat.ko xt_mark.ko ath9k_htc.ko grace.ko nf_log_common.ko pppoe.ko tun.ko x_tables.ko xt_multiport.ko ath9k_hw.ko ip_tables.ko nf_log_ipv4.ko pppox.ko uhci-hcd.ko xt_CLASSIFY.ko xt_nat.ko ax88179_178a.ko ipt_ECN.ko nf_nat.ko qmi_wwan.ko ums-alauda.ko xt_CT.ko xt_state.ko cdc-acm.ko ipt_MASQUERADE.ko nf_nat_ftp.ko rndis_host.ko ums-cypress.ko xt_DSCP.ko xt_statistic.ko cdc-wdm.ko ipt_REJECT.ko nf_nat_ipv4.ko rt2800lib.ko ums-datafab.ko xt_HL.ko xt_tcpmss.ko cdc_ether.ko iptable_filter.ko nf_nat_masquerade_ipv4.ko rt2800usb.ko ums-freecom.ko xt_LOG.ko xt_tcpudp.ko cfg80211.ko iptable_mangle.ko nf_reject_ipv4.ko rt2x00lib.ko ums-isd200.ko xt_NETMAP.ko xt_time.ko compat.ko iptable_nat.ko nfs.ko rt2x00usb.ko ums-jumpshot.ko xt_REDIRECT.ko crc-ccitt.ko iptable_raw.ko nfsv3.ko rtl8187.ko ums-karma.ko xt_TCPMSS.ko crc-itu-t.ko jbd2.ko nls_base.ko rtl8192c-common.ko ums-sddr09.ko xt_comment.ko crc16.ko lockd.ko nls_cp437.ko rtl8192cu.ko ums-sddr55.ko xt_conntrack.ko crypto_blkcipher.ko mac80211.ko nls_iso8859-1.ko rtl_usb.ko ums-usbat.ko xt_dscp.ko crypto_hash.ko mbcache.ko nls_utf8.ko rtlwifi.ko usb-common.ko xt_ecn.ko root@PineappleVI:/lib/modules# modprobe input-core modprobe: can't change directory to '': No such file or directory I assume this is because those modules are for an older kernel: # uname -r 3.18.36 It looks like http://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/ has slightly newer package versions (at 3.18.23) than the 15.05 repo that the nano defaults to, and the current development snapshot is way newer, at 4.4.14 http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/generic/packages/, but I don't see anything in between the two on official openwrt repos. Seb, do you know of any repo versions from the 3.18.36 snapshot? Or are we on our own to compile for this custom kernel version?
  11. Figured out how to do it. I'll document the procedure here for anyone else looking to do the same thing. Downloaded the latest Mark 4 firmware from https://www.wifipineapple.com/downloads Boot into recovery mode by holding reset until it reboots, then letting go shortly after. The WPS led blinks rapidly if you did it correctly. Connect to the pineapple via ethernet, set your computer's ethernet interface IP to (or anything else in the 192.168.1.x network) and subnet mask to telnet to Transfer the upgrade-x.x.x.bin file to /tmp/ on the pineapple by running a wget on the pineapple to the bin file hosted on a web server on your computer. wget Run sysupgrade -n -v /tmp/upgrade-2.8.1.bin and wait for it to finish flashing and reboot on its own. You should now be able to login to the pineapple with the default user/pass of root/pineapplesareyummy Hopefully this helps someone else :)
  12. Dead link, can you please provide instructions or a new link? web.archive.org doesn't know how to handle the hashbang in that url Thanks!
