Clean Flash Jiberish

Recommended Posts

I have tried on a Dell computer directly connected into the serial port and also tried using a usb to serial converter...

Both resulted in this Jibjab, hogwash, gobbledygook that I can't understand :(

If anyone can help me out that would be awesome.

Here's that screen shot again.

You have set an incorrect baud rate for the COM port.

In putty, find the setting and change it to 115200.

That will fix your issue.

Best Regards,

Sebkinne

Must be the baudrate indeed.

Putty puts a default baudrate of 9600 which will give garbled output, it must be set at 115200.

When you've selected serial, you can set the baudrate on the right side of the COM port value or in putty menu left at the bottom which says serial.

"Sigh" I have tried this.... I will try again on another computer today and report back my findings.

Keep in mind, it's not a serial com port that can work directly off your computer's 9-pin connector. You need a UART adapter and that is what connects to the pineapple. You can get either USB to UART, or Serial to UART (Like the Alfa console board).

But typically, jibberish means wrong baud settings.

Also make sure you have parity turned off (no parity).

Well hopefully I won't have the same trouble as this. Just want to make sure I bought the right one to flash my pineapple IV.

thanks

That's the product I used. Make sure you have the correct com port and you should be good to follow the wiki instructions. I have also generalized the wiki to be able to follow with basically any hardware/software combination with general knowledge.

OKay guys GREAT NEWS!!! It works perfictly on 7 bits rather than 8 bits....

BAD NEWS is that I receive a Kernel Panic every time.

Here's what I get

This is a nightmare lol

P.S.

I deleted my lib folder in winscp and thats why I'm clean flashing.... If that makes a difference.

I had the same issue what I had to do was type all the commands by hand and not past them, there are some charecters that get copied for some reason and you don't see them when pasting in putty

I think you misinterpreted what I posted before.... I can't type anything because I can't get to the command line.... When I "choose 1", it just continues on with the stuff afterwards. It never lets me get to the command line part.

Is there a way around this?

You need to turn on flowcontrol (or similar, I keep forgetting the name.) Or if it is turned on, turn it off.

NOTHING IS WORKING!!!!! IS there a way to completely revamp it?? I CAN'T EVEN GET TO COMMAND LINE ON IT!!!

I need to redo the whole system.... how would I do this from it's current state?

(keep in mind I can't get to command line on the pineapple)

Okay, let me summarize:

You have successfully gained access over Serial to your pineapple. No gibberish anymore.

You see the pineapple booting up (resulting in a kernel panic).

You simply cannot interact with the system, right?

As in, you cannot "Press 1" when you need to.

The fix for this is simple. I saw you are using Putty? http://the.earth.li/...fig-serial-flow

Set flow control setting to NONE.

Now try booting the pineapple again. When the bootloader gives you the option to press 1.. press 1 and follow the serial guide we provide at http://cloud.wifipin...le.com?flashing

Best Regards,

Sebkinne

I can interact with it though.... If you look at my previous post where I posted the code, you can see that I was successful at choosing 1, but once I choose 1 it just continues on without letting me get to the command prompt. It accepts that I chose 1, but it doesn't follow through with the procedure of giving me command prompt. :(

Here is the code again that I posted:

as you can see, it did read my input and displayed You choosed 1 but doesn't return command prompt :(

I'm considering getting another board if I can't do a complete rehash of the system.

Keep in mind, this all started when I deleted my lib with winscp.... Thats why I'm clean flashing.

Keep in mind, it's not a serial com port that can work directly off your computer's 9-pin connector. You need a UART adapter and that is what connects to the pineapple. You can get either USB to UART, or Serial to UART (Like the Alfa console board).

But typically, jibberish means wrong baud settings.

Also make sure you have parity turned off (no parity).

Do you have the link to the USB to UART you are talking about. I bought the serial one thinking that's the only one I could've used...Then thinkig how am i going to reset the device if I don't have a serial connection on my new hp laptop... UGH@@@@@@@@

The usb would of been better should of asked!
