Recently, I have a cool weekend project to do at home. Kinda spending a good time with my gadgets. 😀 I decided to install Wifi Pineapple Mark 5 version 2.2.0 on TP-Link MR3020 version 1.9. Its a straight forward step and you can follow that tutorial on my personal wiki at wiki.khairulazam.net.
After the installation finished, you need to go through the pineapple security measure as a part of setting up pineapple for the first time.
You need to select the correct pattern on that page to match with the blinking LED on your device. But… You know. Shit happen. Maybe because you installing the firmware on different hardware. 🙁
So, if you also have and facing the same problem, its okay. With a help from Mr. Fikri Fadzil, lets bypass the pattern verification. >_<
First, power off you device, which in my case, I’m using TP-Link MR3020.
After that, unplug the USB pendrive that contain pineapple firmware and plug in it to your computer. I use Ubuntu Desktop to make this step easier.
Go to this directory:
* /media/a7ac8712-5a08-49da-b9e1-2ede31828bda/ may be different as yours. take note what your USB drive mounted on your OS
And edit this file:
Go to line 199. Or search for keyword “array_search” in this “welcome.inc.php” file.
Edit the code from this:
Save this code. Unmount/eject your USB pendrive and plug in on your MR3020 back.
After that, just power on your device, and try to go through the verify pattern step back again. At this time, it will accept any pattern you like.
Then proceed to the next step. Happy hacking! 🙂
