So my work just gave me an MK5 that has been sitting around for a while.  The SD card was still attached to the card that came with it so I doubt the MK5 had been used yet.  I put the SD card in and powered on the MK5.  I waited 5 minutes and I still only had a solid green light and solid red light.  When it powers on all lights come on then the blue light goes off and then the yellow light flashes twice and turns off.  I have tried the following things: all dip switches up and power on wait five minutes - solid red and solid green light, dip switch 5 down and all others up with my computer having network address of 192.168.1.2 - solid red and solid green light and my computer says no wired connection, dip switches 2 and 3 down and all others up powered on and waited 5 minutes - solid red and solid green light, I have repeated these steps with the factory firmware as well.  All steps end with a solid green and solid red light with no wired connection and no wireless broadcast.  Please help.

Unbricking a bricked WiFi Pineapple MKV

Bricked your WiFi Pineapple MKV? Unbricking is easy and doesn't require any extra hardware!
  1. Download the special factory image. This image is the WiFi Pineapple MKV's 2.0.4 firmware, packaged differently to allow unbricking. Please verify it's md5 checksum to be 8f684011ad40ca601cf159cd3381f7e0.
  2.  
  3.  
  4.  
  5. Upload the factory-1.2.0.bin file through the interface. Wait for it to complete.
  6.  
  7. Make sure the SD card is inserted and powercycle the WiFi Pineapple MKV. Your device will now boot the 2.0.4 firmware. Please wait patiently and refer to the first boot instructions in your WiFi Pineapple MKV Instructions. You may skip any information relating to the stager.
There are discrepancies in these instructions... would you please update them.

This is correct. The factory firmware is different to the upgrade. The checksum is for the factory image.

is the special factory image  (which downloads as mk5_factory.bin) the factory-1.2.0.bin or WiFi Pineapple MKV's 2.0.4 firmware (upgrade-2.0.4.bin)the special factory image that I download (no matter how many attempts) verifies to:

Bigs-MBP:Downloads bigbrother$ md5 mk5_factory.bin 

MD5 (mk5_factory.bin) = 96df5ccc388bd86b40a122c546adf687

and not  8f684011ad40ca601cf159cd3381f7e0 as mentioned in 1.

On https://www.wifipineapple.com/downloads >> MK5 tab >> 2.0.4 firmware
the md5 says it is:

MD5: eb154e6aa368567a4dcb369f68370489
Date: 2014-09-07 15:13:19

this is also not the same as stated in 1.
