Firmware recovery - Bricked - stuck on yellow

Recommended Posts

How fast things can go from bad to worse. Originally all I wanted to do was to reset the password. I attempted the factory reset using the reset button  but the password wouldn't reset to default.

Next I decided to attempt a firmware recovery, unfortunately I uploaded the wrong firmware. Instead of uploading the tera_factory.bin I uploaded the upgrade-1.0.2.bin

When I realized what I did I tried to return to but the page would not load. After waiting 10 minutes the device never reset so I unplugged the power to reset the device.

The device is now stuck on the yellow led. After connecting usb cables the pineapple still presents a USB Serial Port and a Realtek USB ethernet controller interface but I can't get any response from either interface. Ping and http timeout with zero packets received. Putty can open the serial port but there is no output.

Any suggestions or am I totally bricked and need to buy a replacement?
