Hmm... I've never bothered with the verification pass, too time consuming.

So now that the new BalenaEtcher contains ads and ignores privacy settings, what is a good replacement for Etcher?
The previous version, without ads ;)

Re: parts layout on Raspberry Pi 4 B board

I'd just be buying another, cheap enough ;) In fact, get 2 spare, then chill and go watch a movie :)

I got 1 Pi 4 board spare, not used yet, thankfully.

No need to solder now, just 'replace board & go'.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Heatsink vs Fan vs Flirc Case

Update on my complaint of the Bruphny case. Took out 3rd layer from bottom and cut out a section for the HDMI slots, it's very thin plastic, so was easy to do. Now the HDMI cables fit perfectly :) The power 'C' socket can be left as is, as this is slightly higher than the HDMI ones, so the strength ...

Put it in an oven @ 240 degrees c for half an hour, they all slide off perfectly then, as do the chips and other components, but don't touch them. ;)

Re: Power on?

Updated bootloader for Raspberry Pi 4 makes GPIO3 function the same as on previous models (halt if running / start if halted). A simple Normally Open pushbutton switch connected between GPIO3 and Ground is the only hardware that's required. You must also add 'dtoverlay=gpio-shutdown' to /boot/confi...

Life lesson. If something "Irritates the hell out of me" get rid or it and move on. Find a solution that meets your requirements. Don't whinge. Yawn. Life lesson. What may be OK for you, may not be OK for anyone else?, so stop your trolling nonsense. Thanks for all the other decent replies guys tho...

I agree.

On a PC, some may argue that 64/128Gb RAM is ludicrous, and it may be?, but if one is running a host with 24 VM clients, then maybe not? ;)

Re: 4gb - 4B Demand must be high.

So, why DO people want the 4GB, when the 2GB would do the job? Why do people buy 64Gb RAM for their PC, when 16Gb is more than enough? :) Because they can ;) I got the 4Gb version also, not that I'll ever need it, but, it's there, and if your 'loaded', like myself, it really doesn't matter one way ...

These work reliably with all Raspberry Pi models and have an on/off switch:

You will need a Micro-USB to USB-C adapter for the Raspberry Pi 4.
Thanks, not a bad idea, not ideal, but a good fix :)

You turn it OFF by pulling the plug. You turn in on by inserting the plug. Sorry you seem to think this is a problem. My Pis generally run 24/7.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 usb boot?

Motherboards (PC) are the same. Revisions change, so one month it could be v1.0, the next 1.1, it is what it is, and if one wishes to get on the bandwagon early, then you will have that early revision, simple really, and lets be honest, in this case, it's peanuts for a new board regardless ;)
