Poor Experience with the Tetra


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, so I bough the Tetra, had it delivered and setup, and after testing out various things I realized that its defective. I had a replacement shipped to me, and when I plugged it in the amber light would stay lit and nothing else would happen, even through direct power. Did anyone else experience defects, or am I just too lucky to get 2 defective units in a row?

Unlikely. I bricked mine and was able to have it fixed without bothering Darren, Seb and the gang. Whats your physical and network set up look like?

sudo ssh root@


Gets you in, but if youre using a VM to do this you also need to remember to make sure that the device is attached to the guest properly.

If all of this is old news, (and this one gets me every time), make sure that the connection from the pineapple is the first micro usb port (next to the 12v barrel power input), to the computer/android that you are sending commands through. unless your using the management wifi to access it.

If all you ever get is solid lights, press and hold the button next to the 12v barrel power port until it reflashes the stock image, and start over.

I did not use SSH, i used Also, there was nothing to browse or connect to as the device was stuck on amber light state which indicates that it's not ready or have not booted up yet. It is happening with either a USB connectivity or a power adapter. Reset button is not doing anything, no matter how long I hold it.
