ETH female usb plug broken


Recommended Posts

Hi forum.

I broke my ETH port while i was duing a firmwire upgrade.

The only way, as i read it, is that i can regain root over tetra is by using the UART usb plug and connect to the com interface

I have try to connect via com port on linux, it work fine, and i get a login promt:


$ sudo picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0

Terminal ready

Pineapple login:

But i have no login made yet cus it broken during a firmwire upgrade,  so is their a default cred i can use here??

I think this is my last option to get my tetra back to life.

When i boot the tetra its solid blue.

If i put in a rj45 plug, tetra gets and ip, but sadly port 1471 is closed over LAN on the tetra

When tetra has booted i DONT get a wifi signal from it, its stays solid blue,even after i push and hold the reset button 10 sec to activate wireless setup.


Is their any otherway that i can access my tetra or should i say thanks to him and throw him out?

We found the solution..:)

To save this for further history i did it like this.


Booted into uboot by:

Holding reset for 10 sec after i plug in the dc addapter

10 sec later

Plug in the usb to the UART port and your pc

Then in linux i wrote this command:

sudo picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0

Lands us whit the uboot terminal:


Plug in the rj45 cable into the tetra and into your pc, not into you router

type "httpd"


Using eth0
eth0 link down
Using eth1
eth1 link down





Using eth1
enet1 port0 up
dup 1 speed 1000
HTTP server is starting at IP:
HTTP server is ready!


Navigate to in your browser

Choose to upload the WiFi Pineapple TETRA Recovery Firmware that you download from https://downloads.hak5.org/pineapple/tetra at the buttom of the page

When done flashing the tetra will auto reboot.

When its up you have the pineapple**** ssid that you can connect to via wlan, and now we have the pineapple webinterface up and running on as we used to..


good luck
