Re: Is Pidora on the Raspberry Pi B+ dead?

Hey guys, I've recently purchased a new batch of Raspberry Pi B+ that my Pidora image will not boot on, the green LED does not flash once on this new batch. A major difference I noticed between the B+'s I had already used vs. the new batch was the change in RAM chip from Micron to Elpida. I've even...

Re: Is Pidora on the Raspberry Pi B+ dead?

As a workaround you might try copying new firmware to your /boot partition (make a backup first). Keep your current kernel, but take bootcode.bin, start_elf.bin etc from: https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware/tree/debian/boot Just tried keeping the kernel.img's, grub folder, and lost+found folder ...

Re: RPi B+ won't boot, older B+ boots fine

The change in memory manufacturer is almost certainly the culprit. I don't know much anything about the differences in bootcode.bin for different OSs, if you can find a more recent Pidora image I would try the bootcode.bin from that with the older build. Otherwise you might be into generating a new...

Re: RPi B+ won't boot, older B+ boots fine

UPDATE: I just tested the newest version of Pidora (R3) and it does not boot on the newer B+'s. Seems the Raspberry Pi Foundation has made Pidora completely incompatible with the Elpida chipset. Was the older image also Fedora minimal? (This may turnout to be irrelevant, but let's get the full pictu...

Re: RPi B+ won't boot, older B+ boots fine

I just tried a newly downloaded image (a Fedora minimal) and it successfully reads on both B+'s.

This means that the 2 B+'s I have are NOT identical. Even if there was a problem with my image, it would have to produce the same result if the boards were truly identical, no?

RPi B+ won't boot, older B+ boots fine

Hey guys, I've read through the Boot Problem sticky already and none of the issues mentioned in that post is similar to my situation. I have an image that I have been writing to micro SD's for my B+'s. I have had no issues with this until the latest batch of B+'s that I ordered from Adafruit. I've t...

Pidora WiFi setup with RT5370 dongle

Hey guys, I'm currently trying to get wifi set up on my Raspberry Pi with Pidora. So far, I've tried using nmcli and wpa_supplicant with no success. nmcli gives me the "secrets were required, but not provided" error while wpa_supplicant just doesn't connect. Copy of my wpa_supplicant.conf here: #ctr...
