Hi

 

Just obtained a Nano - running firmware 2.7.0 - and cannot install SD card.

I've tried various suggested solutions form previous years, but no luck.

Also, text seems to suggest that this is a known issue - and that it has been resolved.

Help please.

Ensure that your fstab looks like the below. It can be edited from the Advanced page. 

config global
	option anon_swap '0'
	option anon_mount '0'
	option auto_swap '1'
	option auto_mount '1'
	option delay_root '5'
	option check_fs '0'
config mount
	option target '/sd'
	option device '/dev/sdcard/sd1'
	option fstype 'auto'
	option options 'rw,sync'
	option enabled '1'

Then make sure your MicroSD card has only a single, unnamed partition and is formatted EXT4.

I'm kind of in the same boat as you, just got my first Pineapple yesterday. what i found is that the latest firmware is a bit buggy. I suggest skipping this latest firmware and use the last one back (2.6.7 if i recall correctly). Don't be hard on Hak5 for this, we have been in the throws of Covid-19 since 2.7.0 was released. I have the utmost faith that they will get problems with 2.7.0 firmware sorted out when they can.

 

P.S. One of the problem i found with 2.7.0 was with sslsplit seaming to cause the cpu to max out and the pineapple to lock up. remember Hak5 did not make sslsplit or may other packages for the pineapple.

Thank you both for your speedy responses!

fstab changes didn't help, I'm afraid  BUT reversion to earlier firmware (2.6.2) worked a treat - thanks folks!

Cheers

So, you are saying firmware 2.6.2 resolved your issue?

I'm having the same issue. I have a Pineapple Tetra.  The USB is recognized and mounted with a ext4  filesystem, but when you click install module, the only option displayed is install internally.  How do I get modules to install externally?  below is my current fstab.

 

config global
    option anon_swap '0'
    option anon_mount '0'
    option auto_swap '1'
    option auto_mount '1'
    option delay_root '5'
    option check_fs '0'
config mount
    option uuid 'ae09c2d4-ebbb-4f11-bea6-d1cfa07932cd'
    option target '/mnt'
    option device '/dev/sda1'
    option fstype 'auto'
    option options 'rw,sync'
    option enabled '1' 

 

What am I missing to make this function correctly? in older builds of pineapple, it was as simple as plugging in the USB and the option to install externally appeared.

Sí, volvió a la versión 2.6.2, ejecutó el formato SD (desde la GUI) y todo parece correcto: SD visible y utilizable

Hola buen día

Soy nuevo en el tema, me podría decir como devolverme en el firmware a la

2.6.2 , ya la descargue pero no se como aplicarla a la Nano.

 

gracias de antemano por la respuesta
