Re: Raspberry Pi 4 temperature

Oh cool, so from what I understand, the Pi now supports booting from mass storage over USB by default! That's great, because the SD card holders are painfully delicate! Programming my 3B+to boot from USB before SD holder failure really saved my 🥓. Is this different to that? I was able to boot from U...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 temperature

@bensimmo And update Raspbian and install the boot eeprom updates (if it doesn't do it automatically). What does the "eeprom" do? I did update/upgrade, rpi-update (upgrade? You know what I mean, firmware!), but I haven't heard of that one.... Also, what would the advantage be of angling the fan? I'l...

This will do nicely until a decent case comes out!

I bought a Raspberry Pi 4B 4GB today, and with just an aluminium heatsink, the graphics chip and CPU got hot to the touch very quickly, and measured between 60/70C. I'm running the latest "Buster" Raspian release. Since there aren't any cases I want to buy at the moment, and I wanted to use it immed...

Re: Making files executable

I know this is an ancient thread, but I thought someone in the future might find it useful.

You can't chmod +x a file with a space in the title. Push the words together and use standard practice of capitalising new words i.e screenOff and not screen off

Re: Can't boot RPI 3b+ from USB

NOOBS is not recommended or supported for USB boot I only tried it once, to see what the other OSs were like. I usually use Raspian Desktop Exactly what are you doing? You say flash image to SD card, then install to USB drive with NOOBS? No, I mainly use Raspian on the Pi on an SD card, but if some...

Re: Can't boot RPI 3b+ from USB

Changing or hiding your SSID is done in your router. There is no point in hiding your SSID. The SSID was never meant to be hidden, and hiding it does not increase network security (it doesn't do what you think it does), it only causes unnecessary connection problems. If you insist on making your li...

Re: Can't boot RPI 3b+ from USB

What are you using for a power supply? What kind of USB drive is it? I'm using a 5v 2.5ma power amp designed for the Pi, never get the thunderbolt warning so that's not the issue, and I've used multiple memory sticks, an SD card in a USB reader, a powered HDD, none work. I burn the image with Etche...
