Several guides shows how to get the display working where you use a custom kernel image or simply flash a modded version of Raspbian.
While this solution works it comes with two critical drawbacks. Firstly, the kernel used is old and does not contain the same drivers as you will find in newer versions of Raspbian, in our case it removed the WiFi Adapter drivers we were using. Secondly, you will not be able to do a system update via sudo apt-get update in the future as this will overwrite the custom image and leave you with a useless screen and a Raspberry Pi with a questionable OS.
So to avoid these issues we set out to find a better, less invasive solution to get the ili9488 working on the Raspberry Pi
