I have put a couple of 3's in cases that I just drilled 2 holes in where the LEDs are with a Dremel. You can see them fine.

Re: RPi won't boot after first shutdown

Sounds like you are not waiting long enough after you issue the "shutdown" command to remove power/sd card. Wait until activity light completely stops blinking.

Re: Pi3 seems to be corrupting SD card

Make sure the Pi is COMPLETELY shut down before you remove the card - specifically, wait for the green light to stop blinking after issuing a power down - then wait a couple of seconds, remove the power, then the card.

I found that using the above disciplined shutdown, I haven't had a corrupt card.

Re: Aluminum enclosure for Raspberry Pi

So these are $50.01 EACH and do NOT include a Raspberry Pi - am I missing something?

Re: USB boot now working on Pi3

I have been running an AMD SSD as a boot drive very reliably for a couple of weeks. Updates are performed regularly without issue. I also have a WD PiDrive set up as a boot drive and it has also been without issue. If you follow the document published (msd.md), and update as instructed, it should wo...

Re: USB boot now working on Pi3

Update/Upgrade and reboot were all successful. I did do both steps which ultimately worked - meaning that when I just did step 1, it stated that firmware was up to date. I then deleted (renamed) ".firmware_revision" then re-executed "sudo BRANCH=next rpi-update". This time, it did update everything....

Re: USB boot now working on Pi3

I have reformatted the PiDrive and SD card, started again from scratch, and now have the USB PiDrive booting again with the latest Raspian [Pixel]. All seems well, but I will be hesitant to do any updates to it as that is what broke it all in the first place. Has anyone come up with a reliable way t...

Re: USB boot now working on Pi3

Is there any update on where things are at with the USB Boot? I just downloaded the latest updates (with Pixel) to the SD card and attempted to update the USB drive but the USB drive will not boot at all now. Is msd.md up to date?

For the record, I took absolutely no offense - quite the opposite, I understood perfectly - this IS playing!!

Re: USB boot now working on Pi3

Yes, it works fine with a WD 314GB PiDrive. I am using a "Pluggable USB 2.0 4-Prt Hub" - the PiDrive is plugged into it.

Re: Static IP and hostname

I got mine to work by doing the following (example using YOUR IP addresses):

- Added to "/etc/hosts":

#Ethernet connection
interface etho
static routers=10.0.0.1
inform 10.0.0.205

- Added to "/etc/hosts"

127.0.1.1 "HOSTNAME"
