Re: OS Version and Upgrade

Updated 6Apr16: 1) As per ghans' post (below), for me “cat /boot/issue.txt” seems to work best for getting the original Rasbian-Base-Image-Issue-Date (ie. the Rasbian-Image “Version Date” as listed on the “www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian” website): * Eg. “Raspberry Pi reference 2015-02-16 (ar...

Re: Headless setup: no keyboard, display or frustration

Headerless configuration of RaspberryPi using a 2nd "Controlling" RaspberryPi (using an ethernet cable) [Works with Raspbian Jessie v4.1 and Headerless RasPi_B+, and probably RasPi_2B and RasPi_3B.] [Update: Note that this does NOT seem to work with Raspbian Wheezy, as the original Wheezy-Image doe...

Re: Help with getting to Noobs recovery

On my Raspberry Pi 2B, to re-enter Noobs v1.8.0 (March 2016), with USB-keyboard connected, I find I need to wait until I see the "Press & Hold Shift for Noobs" screen, and then PRESS & QUICKLY-RELEASE my shift key TWICE (ie. Shift then Shift again) to re-enter Noobs. (ie. Holding the shift-key down ...

Re: 7" Touch Display I2C pin connections

Using other-i2c-devices with the Official 7" Touchscreen If my understanding is correct, then the Touch-Input of the Official 7" Touchscreen uses i2c to communicate touches to the Raspberry Pi. In the RasPi-2B and RasPi-3B (at least), the Official 7" Touchscreen seems to use i2c-0, which is passed ...

Re: RPi3 - Are these messages OK?

I think the inbuilt Wifi on my RaspberryPi3 may be more sensitive than my WiFi-usb-dongles, and in my case, the inbuilt RPi3 Wifi might be being overloaded. Specifically, if I move my RaspberryPi3 further away from my Wifi router, it seems to connect much more reliably!? Update: I'm now not so sure ...

Re: RPi3 - Are these messages OK?

I also have an issue the built-in wifi on my Rasbperry Pi 3 running "2016-02-26-raspbian-jessie" (with sudo apt-get update & upgrade as at 9Mar16). Specifically, in the Rasbian-GUI, clicking on the "Network" icon, I can see my local wifi signals, and can enter the Pre-Shared-Key, but then nothing ha...

Re: Under-voltage warnings

I have a RaspberryPi 2B with a fresh NOOBS_v1_7_0, where the small-rainbow-square under-voltage warning shown on my official-7"-raspberrypi-touchscreen fine. HOWEVER, as soon as I do a "sudo apt-get update & upgrade" (and reboot), the small-rainbow-square shows briefly whilst NOOBS is initially star...
