Ask Waveshare. I doubt anyone here can support their custom image.

And how can anyone help if we don't even know which manufacturer, which screen, and which OS image?

Hey! So sorry for not specifying that. I'm using Raspbian Jessie, screen is 3.5" GPIO LCD TFT (http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?i ... 6rasp1.jpg) and I don't know the manufacturer since they don't have their name on the screen, however it's the exact same one I linked here.

I also have a forum post I made earlier this week if you need more information about my situation. I really appreciate this, though!

As I said to the OP, ask the supplier. No-one else will know unless they just happen to have the same screen.

Link? Not many people here have the time to search for your post :o
