Pineapple Mark 2 - No Ssid After Reset


Recommended Posts

I just got a pineapple 2nd hand from a co-worker.

I was trying to telnet into it to set the openwrt password but couldnt so I reset it. now its not giving an SSID and i cant connect via ethernet to it.

Is there anything i can do to fix it?

how long should the reset button be pressed?

could low batteries cause these issues?

I don't have a Mk2, but as SOP, you should never flash or reset a device on battery power. Check www.wifipineapple.com to see if the Mk2 flashing guide is still on the wiki. Otherwise, Seb or Darren might be able to help you. :)

Shalkith,

It is very likely that the reset button wiped your device. See it as a soft brick.

You should easily be able to reflash it using the freifunk app or going in manually over redboot.

You can follow the flashing guide for the MK3, just be aware that if you decide to flash the MK3 firmware it will be a little sluggish.

Best,

Sebkinne

iamk3 and Sebkinne,

Thanks for the reply. I think it was a battery issue. I replaced the batteries and it started working again.

Hey Sebkinne

I couldn't find the guide for flashing the Mk3 on my Mk2.

Could you point me in the right direction?

Is it possible to flash back to the MK2 after that if needed?
