I accidentally managed to put a 12 volt input on the USB port, and it bricked my Pineapple. However, i still think there is hope to fixing the device. I got years of experience with soldering, and tinkering with these embedded devices. I'm also capable of soldering SMD parts if needed. I dissected the Pineapple, and got my voltmeter out. Whenever i power it on, nothing happens. Except the area of the Pineapple that handles the "power" to the device (i guess), gets really hot. So hot that i need to unplug the device. Also i'm unable to read any voltage above 1 volt anywhere on the board. It's usually at 0,3v-0,5v. I cannot find any parts that looks damaged, except one transistor on the bottom-side of the board. I'm hoping that replacing this transistor could fix the problem. But, i have no idea exactly what kind of transistor it is, because i'm unable to read the text on top of it. So i was hoping that someone else from the Hak5 community could read what it says on the transistor from their own Pineapple. Here are pictures of the parts i'm talking about: Broken Transistor - 1 Broken SMD Transistor - 2 The "Power Section" TL;DR: Can someone please look at a part on the bottom of their Pinapple board, and read what it says to me?
