Mk4 Reset

Greetings!

So.. after upgrading my new mk4 to 2.0.0 I changed the root pw via the gui and am now locked out. Do I have any options other than returning it or buying a serial console adapter/cable and flashing? It appears the reset button does nothing.. I've tried for 5 seconds, 10 seconds, as power is plugged in, etc.. I suspect that wouldn't reset the root pw anyways... anyone? Much thanks!

I had the same problem. I got frustrated unplugged the power and left it until the next day. When I powered it on it worked with the password I created. Try unplugged it for a while. Maybe it will work the same for you as it did for me.

Perhaps the reset button should reset the root passwd in addition to the network configs. Will add that to the list.

I can't believe that it was overlooked with as much discussion as there is with ideas for it. I guess the obvious things are overlooked :P.

I know this was suggested before but not implemented because of the risk of falling into the wrong hands;-)

How about a factory reset via an alternate key press (20 seconds or WPS+Reset or something) that would initiate a flash by grabbing/using update.bin from tftp or usb?

Why don't you script something to use the WPS button to hit your tftp to grab the *.bin and update? There is a way to program a script to run on WPS button push.

I definitely intend to do that when my TTL converter shows up and I get it flashed and usable again. I was just offering a feature suggestion for built in functionality so people have an easier way to recover when they end up in this situation :D

now i've got the same problem. updatet from firmware 1.1.1 to 2.0.0, mark4 doesen't boot, only the power led is on and the wps led flashes.

pressing the resetbutton doesen't matter, nothing happens.

next week i reflash the mark4 via rs232 and i hope its successfull.

Please remember it's TTL and 3.3 volts.

if you only have a 5 volt ttl then do not plug it into the pineapple and power via the ac wall adapter;-)

Thanks for the heads up! I'll double check before I flash..
