Actually he is not using a raspberry pi , he is using a rock pi , totally different device and more expensive than the raspberry pi.
He ditches the RockPi for a Raspberry Pi 4 about 4 minutes into the video.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 USB mass storage beta

Just a quick question - I have masked the rpi-eeprom-update service, so the update files aren't removed on reboot. Does this mean they're applied every single time I boot? If the bootloader sees a pieeprom.upd or vl805.bin file then it will read them and compare them to the current images. If there...

My best guess is that the update isn't actually happening and then upon reboot the temporary update files are removed by the rpi-eeprom-update service.
You're quite right, I checked again and if I reboot twice after changing the settings, the new boot sequence is finally applied!

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 USB mass storage beta

It sounds like you may have gotten the EEPROM image via a different route. Different distro? Nope, I'm running raspbian, and I followed the instructions on the bootloader page to switch to the beta branch and update from there. As I said, the dumped config stated a boot priority of 0xF41 but this w...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 USB mass storage beta

Just a small detail but using the EEPROM image from 15/05/20 I initially couldn't get USB booting to work, because the boot order was 0xF21 instead of 0xF41 as described on the bootload configuration page. However, dumping the config to a text file, the boot order was listed as 0xF41. Rewriting the ...

64 bit has been very useful here. I'm very grateful for it.
I'm curious - what 64-bit OS are you using?

Re: Next raspberry ethernet?

https://www.tomshardware.co.uk/raspberry-pi-4-everything-we-know,news-59876.html I'm half expecting to get shot down in flames for saying this, but please believe me when I say beforehand that I've had tons of use out of the various models of Raspberry Pi that I've bought over the years (about 10 d...
