Pineapple Bootloop error, can't fix..


Recommended Posts

I've tried everything, reflashing from 2.8.1 to 3.0.0 over serial, i've searched everywhere for a answer and i couldn't find one

It was working on 3.0.0 but then it just went to the bootloop the next day..

Heres the log where it loops at like a reboot

Thanks if the problem is resolved and sorry for asking so many questions.

Could it be a short in the motherboard? Like i can still flash over serial.

And also there was no way it could short i had it in its case with a 12v 1amp netgear plug

Did you re-flash / clean flash over serial? As in download the kernel.bin and rootfs.bin and flash those? Then sysupgrade to 3.0?

Let's see if this is really a hardware issue.

Thank you so much for your reply Sebkinne!

Unfortunately this did not fix the problem i did i full flash listed in the tutorial twice to 2.8.1 and 3.0.0,


"Performing a clean flash"

I did every step. I really hope it didn't get broke..:/ But if you know what it is maybe i can replace the part, i'm super good a soldering.

Again thanks a ton for your reply!

Check the PCB for any burn/heat marks

So how did you solve it mrgray ?

I am experiencing the same problem now.

I flashed a few times but still getting in to a boot loop.

I follow the instructions:

1.setenv bootargs "board=ALFA console=ttyATH0,115200 rootfstype=squashfs,jffs2 noinitrd"
3.tftp 0x80600000 kernel.bin
4.erase 0x9f650000 +0x190000
5.cp.b 0x80600000 0x9f650000 d695a
6.tftp 0x80600000 rootfs.bin
7.erase 0x9f050000 +0x600000
8.cp.b 0x80600000 0x9f050000 23d004
9.bootm 0x9f650000
After typing in bootm 0x9f650000 the device restarts and goes in to a boot loop.
Any Ideas ?
