Problems Flashing My Ap121u

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

I've just received my USB>UART (finally)

So I started following Mr Protocol's tutorial right away.

After getting the default login details, which should be admin/admin according to the terminal, but it's actually root and some number ass pw.

I logged in and started to type the commands to flash the router, unfortunately I get error mesages saying setenv and saveenv can't be found.

My router is currently running the default ALFA firmware.

Thanks in advance for any help!

When you say terminal do you mean in the putty serial connection?

sounds like you have either:

1) logged in via telnet and are trying to issue the commands

2) logged in via SSH and are trying to issue the commands

3) haven't choosen a option from the u-boot options and have let it continue to boot to the alfa firmware as mr protocol has suggested

For some reason it was booting into the wrong option I guess, but since your video said not to choice an option I did that and it went to the ALFA login.

I managed to get it to work though, thanks a lot anyway!

Don't actually know why I thought I had to let it boot without choosing any option :huh:

Thanks, sorry for this unnecessary topic ;)

Start of clean flash you pick option 3.

You only don't pick an option after you have flashed the factory files from cloud.wifipineapple.com

Since it is over serial you do not need login credentials. But you are root and will need to passwd to change the root password to SCP.

Yeah I know already, I just didn't choose the option and got into a login page for ALFA, which I was accessing trough Serial though.

But after I chose option 3 everything went fine B)

Well it isn't really a page, you just get a login prompt in the terminal,

Its the same one you get when telnetting to the device, and in the terminal it says adminu:admin adminp:password.

While actually the username is root and the password is 80546334

I got to that login prompt by using UART > USB but it's the same as telnet. Don't know what ALFA is thinking with their firmware, it's a buggy firmware and there's no documentation or updates for it.

Sorry for the confusion ;)

Yeah indeed, thanks for all the comments guys, but I was already able to solve it half an hour after I opened this thread so I just didn't try enough before posting ;)

Thanks,
