I let the smoke out with 24volt into 3B+

Hi all. I did something stupid and wired my pi direct to a 24v power source instead of the 5v like I was supposed to. needless to say it went POP BANG and let the smoke out. The big diode on the under side by the USB power port has exploded. I think it was labelled 268C but I can't tell as it's now ...

Hey

So your script seems to back up the pi as needed and create the image, but how do I restore to it?

I've tried re-formating with sd formatter too

Advice?

Cheers
Hunt

Thank you thank you!

Re: The Raspberry Pi Backup Thread

Hi @jinx Thanks for your script - works well except for one thing - it seems to go around in loops where it copies files to the image, and then finds files in that image and copies them to itself, over and over again. For me it also appears to be creating the image on the SD card so it ends up filli...
