Personally, I would not trust any third party supplied OS. Who knows what they secretly installed on it.
The first link I supplied is not to an image but an actual driver installation recipe.
Hi, thanks for all the info. I am trying to install the driver as well form the waveshare wiki. I have a 4.3 LCD. It is my first time working with Raspberry pi and I am afraid I am very confused and may be scared to do some of the things, because I may destroy something.
I have a Raspberry 2, with Raspbian downloaded from the Raspberry pi web site, and the Waveshare 4.3 inch LCD. I can connect an external screen and work with Raspberry pi with no problem.
Now I want to install the driver and be able to connect to the LCD screen using the HDMI, as I need access to all the pins for controlling motors etc.
When I go to the waveshare wiki and link to the github, I can only download the entire folder they have. Now, how do I copy this in my micro-SD? I guess I can not do it by copy paste, right? I tried it but when I put my microSD in the card reader, I get a message that I need to format it. But it was formatted when the Raspbian was burnt on it.
Please, help me. I would like to get a bit more details on the initial steps... e.g., downloading the driver in the microSD and then running the proper file in Raspbian. I would assume that to do so, I will originally have to hook up both LCD screen using the pins and an external screen using HDMI.
Thank you for taking time to read and help.
