Resetting Password?

Recommended Posts

Just got my MKIV today and like the noob I apparently am, I managed to get the same typo in my password twice.

Is there any way to reset the password without breaking up the case and logging in via serial console?

If not, is there a somewhat safe way to open the enclosure without breaking it?

Are there screws underneath the rubber "feet" or something?

Thanks in advance

Don't think there's a way to reset it without Serial, because I read something about the reset button not working properly.

To open your MK IV just take off the 2 feet on the side of the USB port, unscrew those 2 screws and then it kinda pivots on the other end

Good luck,

before you begin your serial flash i would read both:

and i personally would recommend getting this USB-UART adaptor:

and do not plug in the vcc cable on the serial connector, only use the 12v power (i.e you only need to connect rx/tx/gnd)

I ended up just booting it with a serial connection and changing the password from there. It proved to be much easier than I feared at first.

5 minutes of digging through a couple of drawers for some hardware, and two minutes of rigging a temporary thing where I didn't have to damage any connectors, etc.

Reset button resets password

That didn't work for me. I tried various combinations and durations of pressing the reset button without luck.

My pineapple shipped with 2.1.0 - could it have been added in a later revision?

The reset button duration is 8-10s.

There are no others.

But you are right, it was added in 2.2.0 I think. I'm sorry :(

We should make sure that the first thing people do is upgrade..

Either way, the only option I can think of is a serial board. Sorry!

Best,

No worries. As I mentioned in a previous post, it was easy enough when I had found all the needed hardware.
