Re: 2.8" TFT + Touch Shield Board v4

Hi Texy,

Thank you for your continued support on this matter. I did want the screen to finish up with the startx screen. Going back to your original instructions I see that further mods have to be made so I will carry on with that.
Thanks again for all your support.
Best Regards

Re: 2.8" TFT + Touch Shield Board v4

Hi Texy,

I notice in your information your test was with a B+ which is quad core. My boards are both single core you said this may be a possible problem in your earlier conversations with me?

Hi Texy, Tried using my other raspberry pi with 512meg ram with the same results switching back and forth during boot. Finished up on the 2.8 screen and needs a STARTX to continue and finishes on HDMI. If it was as you stated only effecting single core boards could the developers not test for this a...

Hi Texy Just an update, I have tried the update using latest raspi and have the same result(as using Jessie).
