Thanks all, I just reformatted my sd card with a fresh Raspian image (removing NOOBS) and all works ok now - no more black screen :-)

How do you remove minecraft? since i can't used it anyways, i might as well remove it to free up some space.

So all you have to do is hold in shift on boot and delete the upgrade and it starts working again? The only reason I upgraded was to get the new sonic pi and I heard yet another version is coming up. I've been hearing bad things about upgrade since forever and I finally try it and this happens.

@shiftoneplus: Thanks for the work on this. I'd been following the github site for the fix and saw that some folks troublshot the problem and pushed out a fix a few days ago. As suggested, I ran the rpi-update.

For the un-initiated, (me included) you need to install rpi-update first:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install rpi-update
After that, you can then run the following code to download and install the latest update:

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update
More details here: https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update and here: viewtopic.php?f=91&t=58963, but in general no need to run rpi-update because the 'apt-get install' and 'apt-get upgrade' codes will get most of the fixes taken care of.

Thanks again. My daughter is thrilled that MCPi is up and running again. Happy computing!

(Newbie) Over in the github posting is says this issue has been fixed Sept 10 2015, but when does it appear as a fix in apt-get upgrade (Sep 20)? I just did an update/upgrade and still minecraft black screen after 5 seconds.

Thank you for info. Ran sudo apt-get install rpi-update then sudo rpi-update all is well with Minecraft.

rpi-update should no longer be necessary to fix the issue. Just apt-get update and upgrade should do it.
