- Which is the revision code of the new device?
- Where is the Act LED connected (GPIO number?) and is it Low- or High-active?
- Are there any further peculiarities compared to the RPi 3B+, despite that is has no USB hub / Ethernet chip?

For the moment best to assume same as 3B+ unless indicated (ie. No ethernet, USB Hub, less memory). I'll try and find better answers but the guy who designed it is out of the office.
No 3A+ specific section, so assume it uses the same as the 3B+?6by9 wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 1:14 pm
Ah yes, it's obfuscated to stop pesky users finding out about it before launch
Is there anything I can run on either of my 3A+ Raspberries to test if your stuff works?
Yes, you can temporarily replace the file kernel7.img on your boot partition with the attached file, after extracting it from the .zip file. You should rename the original kernel7.img before. When you start your RPi 3A+ with it, it should blink 5 times with the Act LED and then report, that it is a RPi 3A+. If you have an USB keyboard attached, you can write on it. It's bare metal.
I thought the 3A+ is not available yet? Or am i wrong?
That means, the Act LED of the RPi 3A+ is on GPIO 29 like on the 3B+ and the 3A+ is widely compatible with the 3B+. USB works in host mode like on the RPi 1A+ or RPi Zero. Thank you very much for testing!
The folks who get early versions of hardware (under an NDA) have joined the "Raspberry Pi Fight club". You know the rule.
No. I plugged the kbd/mouse dongle into the one and only USB. Those things use a proprietary protocol (not BT, BTLE or WiFi).
Raspberry Pi Fight Club, or alpha test team, get stuff for testing. Not sure if we need any more people on it right now - will investigate.
Haha don't we all
Can you email [email protected] and ask for mail to be forwarded to me please.rpdom wrote: ↑Fri Nov 16, 2018 6:39 am
Technically, you could if it is Bluetooth.
