Re: Pi 4B USB Host Boot

Yeah, just coming up 9 weeks, it's been tough, but we must all stay safe and get through this, of which I'm sure we will :) Looking forward to new update, so things are improving.

It was bought from Amazon UK - /shrug
Amazon sell a lot of these cards, and a lot are fake, not all, but I've had 2 from them, returned of course. Best to test when you receive with 'H2testw' ;)

Likewise with any media, USB etc. Print out report at end, and send it back with item :)

Re: Running Raspbian from USB Devices : Made Easy

Does OMV work properly on an SD card installation where usb-boot wasn't involved? If not, it's definitely not usb-boot related. It does indeed, rather well, but I wanted to just use an SSD drive (a 1Tb EVO I had laying around), and thought, hey, I can try and move OS onto this also, and use rest fo...

If OMV happens to be OpenMediaVault, I was able to successfully install and run it on a system created by usb-boot using the instructions found in: Installing OMV5 On a Raspberry PI (I didn't actually try to configure and use it). I hope that helps. Yeah, thx for help Ron, but unfortunately (for th...

Is there any way to stop the script from taking over the whole drive. aka, resizing it all to fit? I'm wanting to resize and create another partition on same drive after all is set up (1Tb SSD). OMV will not let me use the rest of drive for anything else as it seems locked in after using script. Any...

Re: New Pi 4B v1.2?

Ordered my 3rd Pi 4 from Amazon UK last week, just checked, and can confirm it's 1.2 model :D So they seem to be shipping latest ;)

Not tested, but WLCSP SD card voltage switch is at back of SD card slot, whereas, my other 2, it's not.

I'd just be buying another, cheap enough ;) In fact, get 2 spare, then chill and go watch a movie :)

I got 1 Pi 4 board spare, not used yet, thankfully.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Heatsink vs Fan vs Flirc Case

Update on my complaint of the Bruphny case. Took out 3rd layer from bottom and cut out a section for the HDMI slots, it's very thin plastic, so was easy to do. Now the HDMI cables fit perfectly :) The power 'C' socket can be left as is, as this is slightly higher than the HDMI ones, so the strength ...

Re: Power on?

Updated bootloader for Raspberry Pi 4 makes GPIO3 function the same as on previous models (halt if running / start if halted). A simple Normally Open pushbutton switch connected between GPIO3 and Ground is the only hardware that's required. You must also add 'dtoverlay=gpio-shutdown' to /boot/confi...

I still find it hilarious that a device as clever as this, has no way of powering 'ON' without modification? Seriously?
