Is my MKV dead?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Not sure, but my MKV is dead.

It all started when i couldn't log in with via wifi.

Then i tried logging in with lan, and i did but the wifi part wasn't working.... Furthermore, the death infusion was in some kind of loop. It was auto-starting and when i pressed "stop" it would say "sleeping" or something like that.

OK making a long story short i re-flashed the latest firmware 2.40 and never could get it to work after that. (i let it flash for approx 25 min before unplugging the thing.)

Right now I have the lan connection hooked up and I'm getting a flashing BLUE LIGHT and a steady green light.

and I can't access:

Any suggestions?

thanks for reading guys!

Well, after looking around the forum, it seemed like my mkv 5 was bricked.

Thanks to ZaraByte's tutorial: https://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/33303-howto-wifi-pineapple-mark-v-how-to-unbrick/

along with this updated tutorial: https://www.wifipineapple.com/?flashing

I was able to revive my MKV.

I hope this could help someone else in the same boat.

I still am not 100% what caused it to brick like that. Perhaps it's way i had to shut it off. A practical infusion could be a simple OFF switch or button that kills all the process taking place in order to make a safe turn off.

Thanks guys!

That is a VERY GOOD TIP!

I went ahead and tried it and I guess it closed all the running infusions because I couldn't even log onto the mkv without having to reboot.

That's was exactly what I was looking for. I guess this might actually avoid me from bricking it again.

Many thanks!
