Yes it is normal to take 3-4 mins calculating the checksum.

Re: Barebox

If you add "rescueshell" to recovery.cmdline in noobs or pinn, it will dump you straight to a command shell (ash) to play about in.
Add "ssh" to pinn and you can remote into it as well.

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

Hello! I am a raspberry pi 3 model B v1 (2015) user. I would like to use PINN, i have heard it is better that berryboot. "Better" is a very subjective term. It depends on how you want to use it. The main difference is that BerryBoot shares the same Kernel between all OSes, whereas PINN's (like NOOB...

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

I suspect your USB stick is formatted as FAT32, and the size of your backup file is >4GB, which is the largest permissible file size on FAT32. Try formatting your USB stick as NTFS or EXT4, recreate your /os folder, then try backing up again. That should work. I'll have to put a check in for that in...

Re: Brand New Rasberry Pi 3 B+ not working with NOOBS, nor displaying at all over HDMI

As NOOBS is booting, it suggests a HDMI problem to me. https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/video.md lists a number of parameters that can configure the video output. On your MAC, create a config.txt file on the SD card recovery partition. You could try any or all of th...

Re: Conditional filter to set HDMI as the default display.

Excellent!
The firmware is a bit of a black box, so I had assumed the LCD would have been selected prior to this, so the EDID would have been invalid. But I guess not. I'll have to see if this can make some of my scripts simpler.

@max11 - I confirm this bug. It looks like I forgot about backing up OSes with spaces in their names, like "Raspbian full".

Thanks for the log. I think I can see a problem there so I will need to try and replicate it. In the meantime, you might like to try deselecting "Raspbian Full" and see if you can back up the other OSes. You cannot enter recovery mode through VNC.

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

I'm not sure what is going wrong. (Since the backup data will be compressed, the required space is only a conservative estimate, it may vary from that. 2.3GB sounds about right, but 841MB is obviously wrong). Have a look at the troubleshooting section of my wiki @ https://github.com/procount/pinn/wi...

Re: Conditional filter to set HDMI as the default display.

I don't think it is currently possible with your constraints.
You could try a [edid=...] filter but I suspect it won't stop the firmware choosing the LCD first.
I researched this before and a dual config.txt with the occasional reboot to switch modes was the only way I could get it to work.

Re: Conditional filter to set HDMI as the default display.

The display priority is fixed in the firmware, so as James says, it's not normally possible. You might be able to do it with his multiple framebuffer beta firmware (see https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=216399). Failing that, the only way to do it currently (AFAIK) is to reboot...
