Mk VII Pineapple will not recover

Go to solution Solved by hotwetspaghetti,

I have a Mk VII pineapple that was sitting for about 3 months, since the end of August, on my bench powered on and idling but not doing anything.  When I had originally set it up, it updated to the 2.1.2 firmware just fine.  But now I am getting the dreaded flash recovery error on my device.  However, when I go to boot the device into recovery mode, it will not broadcast an SSID for me to connect to it.  It will only broadcast its native SSID in the regular boot mode with the blue light illuminated on the device, which then simply puts me back at the screen telling me I need to install the recovery flash firmware.  I have also tried performing a headless recovery with a USB stick, the recovery firmware, and the properly configured text file but no dice with that either.  I saw another user with a similar issue in a thread from last month, do I need to go straight to contacting support for an RMA or is there some other last ditch recovery method I can try?  Any help is appreciated.

Ok so over the weekend I realized my mistake with attempting to flash the staging firmware.  Got that issue resolved. 

However I still have an issue where after the staging firmware is flashed and I log into the device at :1471 to do the initial setup stuff, every time it goes to install the full blown firmware and reboots itself, that next time it turns on after reboot it immediately goes back to showing the same error and wants me to perform the recovery steps again.  I have done that about 4 times now and I have even tried manually uploading the latest firmware file directly to the device.  When I do that I get a memory allocation error as if the firmware file is too large or something.
