Re: Dual boot SDMI cards

It is a fork of NOOBS with enhanced functionality, including backup and restore, project spaces, password recovery, file system checking, OS customisation, recovery shell and much more. Yes it is also a boot manager and ...

Re: Installing VNC for NOOBS

@MoistFactorSupremo What you say you want to do is perfectly possible, but I wonder if that is really what you want to do? Many newcomers often get confused between NOOBS - which is an OS-installer, and Raspbian - which is the main OS that is used on the RPi. Also you refer to instructions for PINN,...

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

That version of Lineage is rather old now (2017) and unfortunately it is no longer being supported by the developer. I had started to prepare the most recent version for inclusion in PINN, but I'm afraid other events over took me. If you want to try it out, replace the contents of your /os/lineage f...

Re: NOOBS: Nachträglich OS dazu installieren

NOOBS allocates all of the available SD card space to the initial operating systems you install. So there is no space left to install more operating systems afterwards. To do that you have to delete what is there and start again. You could try PINN which is a fork of NOOBS that includes many more us...

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

The firmware is a bit of a black box, known only to the RPF. It is preferred to use the latest firmware wherever possible, as the RPF strive to make it compatible with all models of RPi and with the latest version of Raspbian. I provide the facility of downgrading PINN's firmware to support older OS...

As B.Goode says, the RPF servers are pretty reliable, so it may just be a temporary problem. As an alternative you can try my PINN alternative to NOOBS (see my sig. for details and download from https://sourceforge.net/projects/pinn/files/pinn-lite.zip/download). You could always replace it with NOO...

Re: Barebox

If you add "rescueshell" to recovery.cmdline in noobs or pinn, it will dump you straight to a command shell (ash) to play about in.
Add "ssh" to pinn and you can remote into it as well.

Hello! I am a raspberry pi 3 model B v1 (2015) user. I would like to use PINN, i have heard it is better that berryboot. "Better" is a very subjective term. It depends on how you want to use it.

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

I suspect your USB stick is formatted as FAT32, and the size of your backup file is >4GB, which is the largest permissible file size on FAT32. Try formatting your USB stick as NTFS or EXT4, recreate your /os folder, then try backing up again. That should work. I'll have to put a check in for that in...
