Re: Raspberry Pi4 bootloader update package

My apologies. I'll try keep that in mind. BTW. No need to jump ship from Windows. Both Windows and in Linux are useful tools, not to mention FreeRTOS in some cases. Thanks. My jumping ship is because Windows 7 is soon to be ended and i need a new desktop for my living room. So i got the Pi 4 now to...

Re: Raspberry Pi4 bootloader update package

I'm left wondering what is this the official Raspberry Pi foundation answer to this issue? They still haven't replied to this issue. Are they going to fix it or not? Did you read the documentation on the link provided? It gives clear instructions on how to read the configuration on the current imag...

Re: Raspberry Pi4 bootloader update package

Of course we are not ignoring issues. We keep a very close eye on stuff like this. But right now, it's the weekend, and even raspberry pi engineers need a break now and again. Official bug reporting should be via the appropriate GitHub repo. That way stuff doesn't get lost as can happen with forum ...

Re: Raspberry Pi4 bootloader update package

I used a hex editor on my laptop. I believe there are complete instructions here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/booteeprom.md Thanks jcyr, but that's not very helpful for someone who just wants to use a Pi and not have to learn to rewrite everything in hex. I'm left...

You can fix this by editing your eeprom bootloader with the following parameters: WAKE_ON_GPIO=0 and POWER_OFF_ON_HALT=1. Apparently this can cause problems with some hats, but I haven't seen any.
Thanks, but, how do i get into the eeprom to edit it, please?

Re: Raspberry Pi4 bootloader update package

I did the above update as stated. Since doing this whenever i shut down the Pi4 the monitor shuts off as usual but the Pi Ethernet light starts flashing continuously and the blue and red leds on my SSD stay on continuously - not flashing. I presume this means my Pi is not powering down properly any ...

Just a random thought:

Maybe just send the moderators a polite email asking them to delete your account would get you what you wish.

Ah, we have spent lots of time optimising Chromium, haven't touched Firefox.
Is Firefox going to be optimised? It's very clunky and youtube playback sucks.
