idletester Posted March 19, 2014 Share Posted March 19, 2014 Hi all, I just thought I would write this post to help any further problems with a constant blinking amber light going on and on and on. If you bought a brand new pineapple V and it never seems to install the update.bin file. Here is the problem. It is the 2GB SD Cards. Although the Pineapple V should be able to read FAT it seems to be having problems. The SD Card I got with my brand new Pineapple V had nothing on it. It was just blank. So I went onto the Pineapple Site and downloaded the update software. You can get it here:https://wifipineapple.com/index.php?downloads&download_mk5_zip=1.1.0 Don't use the 2GB FAT SD Card you got with your Pineapple V - Get yourself a 8GB SD Card and format it to FAT32 - Unzip the zip file you downloaded and save the contents (update.bin & MD5 file) to your desktop. Now simply copy them from your desktop into the root directory of your newly formatted 8GB SD Card. Take the card and insert it into your Pineapple V, next insert the power lead and watch. You'll get the blinking amber light while it searches for the update file. Then you'll get a solid blue light telling you that the Flash is in progress. My Pineapple V then went back to a constant amber for a short while and then onto a blinking blue light as the Pineapple V was now booting up. And lastly I have the red, blue and amber flashing and a constant green light. This is telling me that the Flash is complete. I hope this is of some use to anyone who has been having problems with a faulty Pineapple V. All the best. :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
