Re: Pi3 - USB boot

When the system is booted with no SD card it takes an extra 5 seconds, because that's how long this system checks for an SD card. With an SD card in the system (even a non-bootable one) the delay is shorter and boot starts faster (unless you're using bootcode.bin with timeout).

Re: 1TB microSD Card is real!

Yup, even SSD is way cheaper. 1TB Samsung 860 EVO is $130, or 13 cents/GB, and there are cheaper brands of 1TB SSD that are less than $100 (<10¢/GB), compared to 43 cents/GB for the SanDisk 1TB micro SD card (all prices from Amazon). Even the 2TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD is about $150 less than the SanDi...

Re: Pi3 - USB boot

So the only options are 2 or 5 seconds? Default is 2 seconds. Setting the additional OTP bit is 5. So yes, those are the only options (but see below). Also, it was stated earlier here to add a file named "timeout" to an SD card along with bootcode.bin. What does that do? Is it the same as setting O...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 can´t boot!

Did this happen to others? Raspberry Pi computers are all tested before being sold, so it's quite uncommon for one to actually be defective. In most cases it is a power, card preparation or configuration issue. In a smaller number of cases it's user caused damage. But nothing is 100% certain, excep...

Re: Can i use this charger on my Raspberry?

Another potential problem with a charger like that is it requires a separate micro USB cable, and standard micro USB cables are not designed to deliver much more than 500mA (0.5A) without voltage loss. So the problem is twofold. The charger may not be adequate, and the micro USB cable delivering the...

Re: Does anybody else have problems with USB 3 storage on RPi4?

The CPU is not really taxed at all, my Pi 3's are normally around 2-7 %. Would it be a problem with the Pi 4 without heat sink or fan? The ambient temp is around 25 degrees. I have to ask, if your Pi 3's only use 2-7% CPU to do what you need, why do you even want a Pi4? Seems like a Pi Zero would b...

Low voltage warning happens a 4.63V or less, but some USB devices (particularly higher power drain devices) may need 4.75V or more, so there is a small voltage range which may be above the minimum voltage for the warning, but below the voltage a USB device needs.

How do you pick the correct USB cable?
Just make sure it is a USB 3.0 compatible cable.

Some USB-A to USB-C cables are "charge" cables, and many of those only support USB 2.0 data speeds.

The case I'm using has open sides, so that surely helps with cooling. For a closed case you may need a fan and good case ventilation (but at <10% CPU you might be fine). Flirc is taking pre-orders for the Pi 4B version of their aluminum alloy heatsink case (the case itself acts as a huge heatsink). ...
