Re: RPi4 not booting with RPi2 SD card

The PI4 needs the latest Raspbian Buster that was released alongside of it, older versions of Raspbian will NOT boot on it. But if you have Raspbian Buster running on your older PI now, the same SD-cards should run on the PI4 too. p.s. if you are running an older version of raspbian now, and are th...

And that is entirely your choice. We provide Chromium (not, this is Chrome with all the tracking taken out) with our own mods to make it more performant. We do not do that with Firefox. So what i'm getting from this is the RPiF/T doesn't care? That's rather disappointing. This may sound like #first...

Would love to find out how to do this.
