From the WiFi Pineapple Mark 7 Recovery, it is possible to provide an update to the WiFi Pineapple via a USB flash drive. This can be used to setup your WiFi Pineapple Mark 7 if it doesn't have access to the internet.
Preparing the USB Drive
The USB drive must be formatted as one of the following:
- exFAT / FAT
Once your USB drive has been formatted with a supported filesystem, Download the upgrade file from the Hak5 Download Portal to the root of the USB drive. Make sure you keep the original name of the file (upgrade-x.x.x.bin). After verifying the SHA256 sum of the download with the one listed on the Download Portal, safely eject the USB drive.
Performing the Firmware Upgrade
From a powered off state, place your USB drive into the USB Type-A port on the WiFi Pineapple, and connect it to a power source. Once the device is fully booted, it will automatically mount and find the upgrade file on the device. If the firmware file is valid, the device will then perform the firmware upgrade and reboot to the new version afterwards.
To confirm if the device has found and accepted the firmware file, you may visit the UI at http://172.16.42.1:1471 (if connected to a computer) or observe a flashing red and blue pattern from the LED indicator.
