Figured out how to do it. I'll document the procedure here for anyone else looking to do the same thing.

  • Downloaded the latest Mark 4 firmware from https://www.wifipineapple.com/downloads
  • Boot into recovery mode by holding reset until it reboots, then letting go shortly after. The WPS led blinks rapidly if you did it correctly.
  • Connect to the pineapple via ethernet, set your computer's ethernet interface IP to (or anything else in the 192.168.1.x network) and subnet mask to
  • telnet to
  • Transfer the upgrade-x.x.x.bin file to /tmp/ on the pineapple by running a wget on the pineapple to the bin file hosted on a web server on your computer. wget
  • Run sysupgrade -n -v /tmp/upgrade-2.8.1.bin and wait for it to finish flashing and reboot on its own.
  • You should now be able to login to the pineapple with the default user/pass of root/pineapplesareyummy

Hopefully this helps someone else :)
