Re: Edited autostart.sh and now it shutdowns on startup

It is certainly possible to fix this using just the Pi and using init=/bin/bash. I suspect something in OP's procedure (using this trick) isn't right. Don't forget that once you get to the # prompt, you will need to "remount" / to make it writable. Then you can go in and fix whatever needs to be fi...

Edited autostart.sh and now it shutdowns on startup

I purchased a power switch from msldigital. The instructions were incorrect and I added script to the autostart.sh instead of shutdown.sh. Msldigital has since updated the instructions. However, I have a raspberry pi that boots up and shutdowns immediately. I have tried several options such as addin...

Re: The Internet - IT Crowd case

To bring connectors to one side, you'll need panel mount adaptors, such as: Panel mount HDMI Cable - 40 cm Panel Mount Extension USB Cable - Micro B Male to Micro B Female If the LED is small enough, you can drive it directly from the Raspberry Pi's +5 V pin. Alternatively, drive it from a GPIO pin...

Re: GPIO soldering

Do I need to use heat shrink tubing? Or electrical tape? Or not worry about it at all?

Re: GPIO soldering

I used a GPIO breakout board, it connects to the Pi via a ribbon cable and plugs into the breadboard. http://www.canakit.com/raspberry-pi-cobbler-gpio-breakout.html Not sure why there is no picture? There is a picture of it here though, http://www.canakit.com/raspberry-pi-cobbler-gpio-breakout-bund...

GPIO soldering

I've never soldered and I'm starting out. I have tested my connections using a breadboard. Some of the tutorials I've watched they actually solder directly to the GPIO. I really don't want to do this.

Can I just use a female/male jumper cable and solder that to whatever I need too?

The Internet - IT Crowd case

I would like to turn the Internet (a black box) into a case for my raspberry pi. Lot of room for expansion. It's my first raspberry pi project. Ideally I would want the ethernet and USB ports flush against the side of the case. I'm going to dremel out holes for the ports. I'd like to get the HDMI an...
