1. If you have downloaded the zip file from website, the version is in the zip file name e.g. NOOBS_v1.3.11.zip
2. If you have an SD card with noobs already on it, then
a) pop it into your PC SD card reader and read the BUILD-DATA file
b) boot it on your RPi and hold the shift key down as it boots to enter the recovery program. The version is shown in the title of the main window.
c) If you are already booted into Raspbian, mount the /dev/mmcblk0p1 recovery partition and view the BUILD-DATA file there.
Code: Select all
sudo mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt
sudo umount /mnt
Note: The version of NOOBS can refer to the version of the recovery program on the NOOBS disk, or to the complete NOOBS distribution, which includes the recovery program PLUS any OS distributions (currently only Raspbian). Currently the recovery program is version v1.3.10, but the distribution is v1.3.11 because a more recent version of Raspbian was included on Christmas Eve. NOOBS is a convenient OS installer, recovery program and multi-boot loader. The version of NOOBS says little about the version of Raspbian or other OS you may have installed.
