Try it with the system updated as I instructed above (do not use rpi-update), and see if it works.
I did rpi-update recently, could this be linked to my other post? https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 8&t=222046

Yes, if you gzipped them both.
I'm not sure but I don't think this is in your tutorial? It says to keep the file as root, but you could say to name it as root_rp44 to prevent that from happening. I'll do this tommorow. Good night. :)

mv boot.tar boot_rp44.tar

Filenames must match partition names given in partitions.json. file extensions can be different to indicate format.
So i just rename my boot.tar.gz as boot_rp44.tar.gz and my root as root_rp44.tar.gz?

The ram speed was dropped (along with a timing setting) and so should not be 500 anymore, it was found some where unstable at that speed. These are set at boot up in 'firmware' (and overridden in config.txt ) if I have that right. So before reading your comment i had clocked it at 500, should i dec...

You should look at PiJuice, you can recharge the battery using solar power if you buy a seperate solar panel, and the Battery HAT acts like a UPS.

This can probably be ignored. I think it is trying to archive special device files, which are recreated when the OS is booted. Should be ok, but you'll find out when you try to boot it!

That should have read "v2.4.2i OR LATER " so the current vesion should be fine. Yes, if it's a large file, FAT32 won't cope with it and you will have to use an external SD card formatted to ext4. 👍 formatted USB as ext4, installing Raspbian in PINN, going to take around an hour.

"greater than 4GB in size (the root.tar.xz file is likely to be the largest), then this memory device must be formatted as ext4 and you must use PINN v2.4.2i"

Where can i find this? my root file is 8gb or so. is it "The latest version of PINN-lite can be downloaded from sourceforge."?

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

3. Yes, PINN can use .tar.xz or .tar.gz, so use tar.gz if that works better for you. XZ compression does take a while, even on a PC, but that's how it gets a good compression ratio. (Conversely, decompression is pretty quick.) I haven't tried it on a RPi for a while, but I imagine it will take 10s ...

I think heatsinks made for any Raspberry Pi should be ok with the Raspberry Pi 3B +. All chipsets are of similar size.
