Let's have a BETA!


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

We have been working hard behind the scenes and are ready to give you a small peak into what's coming for the MKV.

To do this, we have re-launched our old BETA testing portal found at https://wifipineapple.com/?portal&beta.


  • Updated the Javascript backend of the webinterface to increase loading speeds.
  • Minimize / restore infusions in the UI. Greatly speeds up loading times.
  • Installing new infusions will not refresh the entire interface.
  • Removing infusions will not refresh the entire interface.
  • Fixed the -1 monitor mode bug. <-- seems like this could use some more work.
  • Enabled changing of country code / TX power on the atheros wireless card (wlan0).
  • Protect some mtd partitions from being overwritten by accident (you can ignore this one. Internal testing.)
  • Add python openssl libraries
  • Use netcat instead of busybox's version of netcat
  • Updated all system infusions to the latest version
  • Other fixes

As you can see, we have added lots of new things and fixed or refactored a lot of others. If you wish to be part of the beta, visit the WiFi Pineapple portal page here. Please note that you will need an account on the WiFi Pineapple website first.

Please do not leave feedback in this thread but in the feedback section on https://wifipineapple.com/?portal&beta.

Best Regards,

I'll also post it here:

I like this so much, but maybe we could incorporate themes within the UI, like a white background, and black text or white text and black background. (green on the eyes is a little too much sometimes)
I like how you can minimize the infusions.
Maybe we could incorporate ajax into the setup, allowing you to move the infusions around to your liking without having to minimize them all, to re-arrange them.
Sometimes the small tiles do not update right away when you escape out of an infusion.
Within the network UI, maybe you could incorporate a traceroute to or something similar, sometimes I wonder if the internet path is going out the eth0 or the wlan1
Make an install all feature for the pineapple bar to sd card.
In the karma infusion, maybe incluide a blacklist, which you could remove AP's from and to easier, also include more descriptions on fields, maybe a help menu with basic info on how to get started with the pineapple.
That about sums it up, but good job with minimizing the infusions and updating the code, seems much faster than 1.4 :)
