Great to see v2.0 is coming out. However I still find it super disappointed that when having an old model, Pineapple Tetra the software version is not optional. 
Europeans pay already a huge amount on the Hak5 gear, the shipping costs & declaration costs. So huge disappointment v2.0 is not available for the WiFi PineApple Tetra.
Please make the v2.0 available for older models too such as the WiFi Pineapple Tetra.

I am having issues upgrading to the 2.0 stable firmware. I currently have version 1.1.1 stable installed. When attempting to do the 2.0 update OTA in the settings tab, my pineapple will flash red and blue for some time (expected) then the LED turns completely off. I have attempted to do the firmware update directly with wireless turned off with the file upload from the 2.0 stable release on the downloads page. Similar issue happens. It will flash red and blue for a while then go through the reboot cycle. After 20 min or so it will just get stuck flashing blue and be unreachable.


I have gone through the recovery process attempting the 2.0 update 3 times with no success. On my 4th attempt I manually updated from recovery back to 1.1.1 and everything works as intended.


Is anyone else having issues like this or am I potentially doing something wrong?

Is there a resource I can reference for the pineapple hardware lifecycle?

I say this with a lot of respect for Hak5, and as the owner of a lot of their gear, but expecting any long term support for their hardware is misplaced trust. Generally it's a year or two of support, some improvements and then radio silence. Even the Mk7, which I deliberately waited quite some time to purchase, is without a question quite buggy. I'm installing this firmware as I type this, having been on the beta 2.0 for a while, and I'm fully expecting it not to work correctly. 


As expected:

- run the update and the device is fully reset and needs a full set up from scratch. Except the updating message says the page will refresh when the update is complete, indicating that this isn't the case. This is minor but it goes to show the lack of attention to detail that I've come to expect.

- Last seen is 245 days ago for a scan that just ran.

- Sorting by signal (or other metric) is removed each time a scan is completed

- The scan toggle switch still doesn't make any sense e.g. 30 seconds, 1 min etc. What does this mean? Is it enabling a scan for that lenght of time? Or does it scan ever 30 seconds, 1 minute etc?

Can we call Terminix on this one?  So many bugs.  I upgraded to the latest and greatest to hopefully alleviate these ... new bugs!  Web shell super intermittent and I can no longer download .pcaps from the GUI as before (there's no option).  Sooooo, when's the next release?  I'd like to use these for client engagements but it's not even close to being ready for prime time.  It's a cute toy atm, though.  Gets a lot of questions.  Unfortunately my answers always end with ... you're better off with Kali and an Alpha, so disappointing.
