Re: I Think My Pi is Really Dead :((

Turns out I actually got it from a third party seller on amazon. After quite a few emails of them trying to pawn the return off on anyone and me trying to convince them they are the only one that can return an item they purchased to element 14 they finally agreed to a refund. I'm kinda scared to sen...

Do you have another SD card to try? Do you have a backup copy? Your card is probably corrupted. Yeah, I've got quite a few cards with different operating systems, all have the same outcome. I have also tried mostly every power supply I have including a 2A portable charger to no avail. Any idea if t...

I Think My Pi is Really Dead :((

After being on vacation for a few days, when I came home I plugged in my Pi and everything seemed normal, a few minutes went by and for the first time in probably months I got the little pixel rainbow square in the corner. Shortly after that, the same time my window air conditioner (both plugged int...

Re: Raspberry pi 2 B not booting

It could be that your Pi is just dead. I think mines dead also after a bad power supply put too much power through it and now only the red and green LED turn on so my guess is that's what happened on a dead Pi. But it could also be that none of your power adapters have enough current. Ones for phone...

Openelec WiFi Failure Problems?

For some reason OpenELEC will work with my WiFi perfectly fine for days so long as I don't turn it off, then once I turn it off or restart I have to reboot like 20 times for it to finally connect to my WiFi again and not say "failure". Its annoying, reeeeaaalllyy annoying. Is there a fix f...

How do you over clock with this version? The config.txt file in /boot is empty and inin uncommenting and modifying the one in boot.bak does nothing nor does overclocking with raspi-config. Unless lsusb or inxi doesn't notice the over clock speed?
