check the sha256 sum and compare it with that from the web page.

Code: Select all

if the sum is not correct, then your download is corrupt.

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

Yeah I originally mislabelled the 4.2 boot partition and I thought I'd done the same again but apparently not. So I was trying to investigate. It should not matter what the partition name was so I think it picked up the old file for the new version. Did you originally install v4.2 from the internet...

In Stretch you don't use /etc/network/interfaces to assign network settings. That is done in /etc/dhcpcd.conf.
How is this done?
e.g.:

Code: Select all

interface wlan0
static ip_address=192.168.1.123/24

this works as well for stretch - even there is /etc/network/interfaces part included.

unfortunately i have no proper WiFi USB dongle on my RPi2 - my WiFi USB dongle does not support AccessPoint mode :x
maybe yours too.
