If yes, I want to know if I follow after doing all those steps, can I clone the SD card and assume that the solution is in the SD card? That means if I got 2nd or 3rd Pi, do I need to do all the steps again if I use a cloned SD(which the SD was cloned from a Pi that done all those steps above)?
Sorry about my poor English, im a Chinese, English is my 3rd or 4th language. =)
Hi, the solution above will essentially solve issues with some faster SD cards by updating the LINUX software on the SD card.
But, and i am no expert here, you may also need to ensure your firmware is updated also depending on the Pi you have. The firmware is the code that starts up the Pi internally, and is stored in to the GPU to make it function. This firmware when initially powering on the Pi then passes control to the operating system on your SD card to continue booting. Similar to the "BIOS" we are all familiar with on other computers.
It depends if the Pi you are moving (or copying) your SD card to has a firmware that is happy with the current SD card / operting system config.
I'm no expert but that is how I see it. Others may put me right on this.
