Thanks for this. I will dig in shortly. But I would appreciate some first hand experience with Android on RPI. If I understand correctly not even using Android will give me browser capability?

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

@vinaypundith - That is unfortunate. If you install pinn-lite.zip afresh, then it overwrites recovery.cmdline with the default version that includes the `runinstaller`option. This causes PINN to wipe your fresh SD card to make it suitable for use with PINN. If you have any existing OSes installed, ...

Re: A few questions

I can only answer your 4th question: It is possible to run Android apps on the Raspberry Pi, but you will have to install Android on it. Try using Emteria OS, which is an Android distribution that runs on the Pi. 4) regards Android LineageOS seems more mature: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/vie...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

I once had 3 OSes installed with PINN. One day I tried to do a firmware update from within PINN, and it got interrupted due to loss of power. My Raspberry would then not boot at all, instead getting stuck at the rainbow screen. After doing some searching online, I replaced the PINN boot folder with ...

Re: Moved entire filesystem to USB, months later dist-upgrade bricked me

"Bricked" in what way? No boot?
What are the contents of the /boot partition now?
Also, if there is a bootable USB drive and a bootable SD card, it will prefer to boot from the SD card. Try removing the SD card and booting.

Re: Application Selection Screen

To automate the "startx", you can open the Raspberry Pi Configuration window (from the desktop) and select the option to boot to desktop instead of CLI. Not sure about the RetroPie though.

Re: Pixel Desktop stops responding after updating Pi3

Try rpi-update before apt-get upgrade, just in case the new versions of programs installed by apt-get upgrade need a newer kernel version to work.

Re: Copying /boot from SSD to USB-SSD

That should work, and I don't see why you need to change the hostname either (as that info is not stored on the boot partition). Just ascertain the partition names, as it usually won't put /dev/mmcblk0p1 for an SSD. Usually mmcblk0pX is for SD cards and /dev/sdaX for any other type of media. I recom...

Re: Raspberry Pi not starting

Where on the board is the humming coming from? Do you have a fan attached?
Try using a different SD card. I have had an RPi abruptly stop working because of a dead SD card.
If the CPU or other chips on your raspberry used to be continuously hot, then one of the chips may have failed.

AFAIK, you need to have the whole boot partition on the 64MB SD card, not just bootcode.bin. Your information is outdated. Using a bootcode.bin only SD card is now the officially documented procedure for USB booting Pi computers that do not support USB boot, or ones that are having trouble booting ...
