Please Help: How To Update Noobs For Pi 3B+

Thu Mar 29, 2018 9:04 pm

How do you update Noobs to works for the new Pi? I have already updated Raspbian so it works, but not Noobs. Any help is appreciated!

Burn a fresh copy of NOOBS lite 2.7 to a SDCard.

Copy everything in partition #1 (/dev/sda1) on the new SDCard to partition #1 (/dev/mmcblk0p1) on the old NOOBS system EXCEPT recovery.cmdline.

If you copy recovery.cmdline you WILL trash your system.

Cross fingers, stick two pencils up your nose, turn round three times, say "Wibble" and hope you've not screwed the old NOOBS card. Reboot.
