Making a raspberry pi2 sd card compatible with a raspi 3

A thunderstorm took out my raspi 2 server this morning (despite layers and levels of protection, the raspi 2 failed but all the other hardware seems fine). Seems a good moment to upgrade to the raspi 3. The sd card is fine. As I currently do not have another raspi 2 sitting around to do the apt-get ...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

Isn't that male to male. Somehow I need a female micro hdmi to connect to the lapdock's male connectors.

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

By trying different cables I have and trying to switch things around, I suspect that the following adaptor may be a problem in my setup: http://img.dxcdn.com/productimages/sku_176085_1.jpg http://dx.com/p/micro-hdmi-female-to-hdmi-female-adapter-black-176085 Has anyone had a success with using these...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

I am going to try and duplicate your setup to the best of my abilities, but right now I have too many other things on my plate to give it the time it deserves. Hopefully, next week I can see if I can get some success.

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

Congratulations!
Could you please write as comprehensive a list as possible of all the cables and adaptors you used connecting it all together.

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

Good find.
I will have to look at it in more detail. Must say that the lack of success so far does not bode well, but I figure I still have a bit of an interest in making it work.

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

This really is puzzling. At some point I am going to end up opening up the dock in hopes of making some sense of it there, but it really should not be necessary. I am not sure an oscilloscope will be much help as the communication will likely be digital. If we could come up with any other device tha...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

Well, I tried to duplicate your results with no luck. The only response I get when connecting the pi to the dock is that led next to the dock button flickers red for a second. When connected to a TV I get the pi desktop, but no response from the trackpad or keyboard. I also tried a long list of alte...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

Great idea for an experiment! I will try that myself later today to see if I get the same results. A quick question. When your screen comes on for a few seconds, it is showing the ras pi output, or is it blank or showing something else? With mine the screen never lights up, so I have been unable to ...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

I think there is a seperate issue with the lapdock 500 pro that your cable solution would not address. For example, while I do not have a lapdock 100, I believe that if you connect an hdmi cable to it from your computer, it will act as an additional monitor (please correct me if this is not true). T...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

There is a video on the internet of someone doing more or less the same thing with the same result. Odds are, therefore, that the issue has something to do with hdmi.

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

I have a RAZR, I just don't know what I need to do to get that info off of it. I am no expert on mobile phones and hdmi, but probably a good place to find out more is with forums dealing with the RAZR and hdmi issues. We are both feeling around in the dark here, but since I don't have access to a R...

Re: problems setting raspberry pi up with lapdock 500

I have the same problem, except that the screen is not lighting up. The issue must be either that the lapdock is expecting a very particular hdmi signal from the razr, or it is sending a query down the usb and expecting something specific back. I do not have access to a Razr so it is hard to trouble...
