Firmware Upgrade: WiFi Pineapple NANO

Filed under: WiFi — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

This is mainly a reminder for myself, as I don’t often update my WiFi Pineapple NANO.

Updating the NANO performs a reset.

I connect my NANO via a USB cable to my laptop. The USB cable allows me to flip the NANO to access the reset button.

I login via HTTPS port 1471

I connect the NANO to a WiFi access point:

Once connected, I can check for upgrades:

And then perform the upgrade:

This will take several minutes, after the upgrade is performed, this dialog will appear:

From here on, the NANO has to be setup again:

I press the reset button quickly to perform a setup with WiFi disabled.

And configure the NANO, just like for first use:

I select France for Radio Country Code, because Belgium is not an option:

At this point, the setup is not yet complete for me.

I store the recon.db on an sd card, so this has to be configured:

And I also install modules:

That I install on the SD card:

Once installed, some modules need dependencies to be installed too:
