Raspberry pi model B code 0004

Wed Apr 21, 2021 8:13 am

Hi

I'm looking for a Pi model B revision 2 code 0004 (you can type cat /proc/cpuinfo in your shell to check). If anybody has one of this exact revision/code version to sell, please contact me here or by mail (scholiaste a-t yahoo d-o-t fr).

Kind regards

That's the one with the extra 8-pin GPIO header, right?

I'm sure I've got one of those somewhere, just not sure where at the moment. I'll have a look later.

Yes, first model B to have these extra pins, 256MB RAM.
Thanks for your help.

you can type cat /proc/cpuinfo in your shell to check
I really wish people would stop recommending "cat" as the general purpose file viewer in Unix/Linux.

It is too dangerous, since you never really know what you are catting. It could be very large; it could contain binary garbage. Yes, I know this should not be an issue with /proc/cpuinfo, but it is, nonetheless, a bad habit to get into.

You should use "less" instead. That controls for large and/or garbagey files.

The 'cat' command is being used here for a specific purpose not as a 'general purpose file viewer'.

Just wondering if posting in the Francais sub-forum might get you an offer from the Hexagon, which would be more convenient. viewforum.php?f=65

{Edit: the board I found does not have the appropriate Revision Code so I am not in a position to help.}

I might be able to help, if I can find the other 'original' Model B that I've got somewhere to keep my completion-obsession under control... Haven't researched postage charges from UK to FR. Have you? (Or Strasbourg is Twinned with my home town, but I guess noone is doing mutual Twinning visits just now... )

I'll check the french subforum also, thanks.

However a registered shipping with Royal Mail is not so expensive so no problem on my side to cover all the costs if any of the valuable UK or EU member of this forum has the board I'm looking for. ;)

How does 0004 differ to 0005 and 0006 which are the same model.?

Ah yes, forgot about that, it been a few years and I can't remember the old codes. A little bit before my time.

Illydone, would they work if I find one?

You mean 0005 or 0006?

I keep a fully working version of every generation I bought although I don't use early B 256MB versions any more (my oldest still in use is a B+/512) except for testing purpose with the less powerful raspi. However, I don't want to collect them neither. I just really would like to replace an old broken one from UK (a 0004?) by a 0004.

Thanks for all answers.

Still searching for a 256MB Raspberry Pi model B with mounting holes. ;)
