Serial connection via USB with no network connection?

Is there a way to connect to RPi Zero with no network connection via PuTTy (on Windows)? I have some C.H.I.P. computers that had a "serial gadget" driver for Windows that allowed connecting via USB OTG and PuTTy. It made it convenient to configure them without needing to attach a monitor/keyboard/mo...

Re: Extracting Files froze at 33%

If you're trying to install Raspbian with desktop, I'd give up on NOOBS and just download and copy the image to microSD using Etcher.

Re: Small part fell off my pi

If it was my Pi, I'd replace the capacitor. Designers usually over design filtering, but there's no point in tempting fate. It being gone could cause random failures due to supply glitches.

Re: Entrada 12V GPIO

Put a voltage divider on one of the GPIO's set as an input and read the value periodically from a script and execute your desired function.

Translated by Google:
Coloque um divisor de tensão em um dos GPIOs como entrada e leia o valor periodicamente de um script e execute a função desejada.

Re: Down convert +24DC to 5V

You'd fry your Pi.

-ve could refer to a negative supply but, in your case, it probably means ground. Measure the voltage from +ve to GND, I suspect you'll get 24V.

Re: Anyone have 8192eu.ko WiFi driver for Raspian Stretch?

It turns out that this was a false alarm. Raspian Stretch includes a compatible driver.

I think the problem was signal strength. A Pi Zero W in the same location got enough signal to let me configure. The USB adapter is tiny and probably has a tiny antenna too.

FWIW, this adapter is V3.8.

Put the shutdown command in a script that prompts for and validates username/password before executing the shutdown command.

As mentioned earlier, it's a bad idea to let users obtain elevated privileges.

[SOLVED] Anyone have 8192eu.ko WiFi driver for Raspian Stretch?

I have a TP-Link TL-WN725N USB WiFi adapter that I'd like to use on a Pi Zero.

The instructions involve modifying the kernel which is above my head at this point. If someone has already done this, I'd really appreciate it if they could post the binary.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Noobs hangs at 1% extracting file system

I believe that is not correct. The initial boot partition for any RPi-bootable microSD card needs to be in simple FAT format. You're right. The card needs to be formatted FAT32 with a third party utility because that's the only format Pi's bootloader can read. https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentat...

The card is definitely 256gb. I used guiformat.exe to make the card FAT32 after formatting with SDCardformatter.
For capacities > 32GB, you need to format as exFAT.

EDIT: Pi bootloader can only read FAT32.
