Version for RPI 2 ( 1.1 )

Mon May 21, 2018 2:24 pm

Hi.

I'm doing tests to put freeBSD to the RPI 2 (1.1), but I have doubts when selecting the image that I have to download for the RPI.

I mention it, because when reading the FreeBSD wiki, you can see the following:

The Raspberry Pi 2 released in February 2015 has 4 USB ports, micro SD slot, a new 900 MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU, 1GB RAM and complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1.

From what I understand, the RPI is compatible with the RPI 2. That means I have to download the RPI-B image or it's the RPI-2 image

Thank you if you can clarify this doubt.
