Re: How to connect DAB radio module to Pi?

Hi, I also have a Pi and am also looking to do an in-car MP3 player and hook up a DAB radio via RS232 as I do like my TalkSport chit chat as well as music. Also I have an old 440x234 LCD 7" TV screen (butchered from a motorised car unit) that I am considering using as screen. There are other posts o...

Ooohhh... Nightmare Park for Pi.

I've actually just released it for Android - search for it on Google Play - it shouldn't be rocket science for me to pop it on Pi too as its written in Java :)

Re: Pi with 16GB SanDisk Extreme Class 10 45MB/s WORKING

So the solution above will solve the slow SD card access bug in the boat loader? If yes, I want to know if I follow after doing all those steps, can I clone the SD card and assume that the solution is in the SD card? That means if I got 2nd or 3rd Pi, do I need to do all the steps again if I use a ...

Ah - so basically it was like a kernel (+ start.elf) update?

Why does the procedure in the OP help get a faster SD card working? :?
