Micro SD unbrick issue

Recommended Posts

I have done plenty of searching but couldnt find anything. My device somehow got bricked. I have followed the unbrick guide step by step, and have successfully flashed stager.bin.

However it seems the pineapple cant find the upgrade.bin on the root of the micro SD. Either the amber light flashes, or i get a constant red light after the power cycle from flashing the stager.bin file...

Help would be appreciated, cheers

Unbricking a bricked MKV

Bricked your WiFi Pineapple MKV? Unbricking is easy and doesn't require any extra hardware!


  • Download the special factory image. This image is the stager your WiFi Pineapple MKV was shipped with. Please verify it's md5 checksum to be 16fbb40534ec104300733934efdf659f.
  • Because you are flashing the stager, you will also need to download the up-to-date sd card files. Just download the ZIP from here.
  • Power off your WiFi Pineapple MKV and set the DIP switches to up, up, up, up, down (from left to right).
  • Connect to your WiFi Pineapple MKV via ethernet and set your network interface to a static IP of 192.168.1.2
  • Boot up the WiFi Pineapple MKV. After around five seconds, you can navigate to http://192.168.1.1
  • Upload the stager.bin file through the interface. Wait for it to complete.
  • Extract the downloaded ZIP containing the SD card files into the root of your SD card.
  • Set all the DIP switches back to the default configuration up, up, up, up, up (from left to right).
  • Insert the SD card and powercycle the WiFi Pineapple MKV. Your device will now boot the stager and that will flash the latest firmware upgrade. Please wait patiently and refer to the first boot instructions in your WiFi Pineapple MKV instructions.
  • You are done. Enjoy your freshly flashed WiFi Pineapple MKV!

The pineapple never flashes the firmware from the micro SD, it is formated to fat32 and contains the upgrade.bin file on the root directory.
