Re: Raspberry pi 4 - x64 Processor ?

Thu Dec 06, 2018 9:28 pm

Your right, it came with KitKat so had its upgrade, even older OS...
it was the original Hudl that was 2013 iirc, my bad.

I still use my HUDL2 though.
And the tab4 pro is better, but then so is a similar priced (to the HUDL2 normal selling price ) Amazon Fire 8.

My HUDL2 last long enough to do most things, it should be noted it has a (at new) larger capacity battery, only by a bit.
Still tech moves on and you get a Fire/Lenovo 8" doing well now.
And it last longer both of them last a lot longer than any of my arm based devices from 2012/2013 I still have.

... wonders of wondering which of my devices is on Marshmallow/Android6, hum.

What I'm saying is 4 years of tech is what we have here, my phone is quicker and lasts longer than my phone from 4 years ago. All have been ARM based.

The original Hudl didn't even get a software update to 4.4 KitKat, let alone Lollipop. The Hudl2 started off as KitKat and was upgraded to Lollipop.

The original Hudl had an ARM Cortex-A9, which is a similar processor to that found in the Pi 2.

Anyways, let's get back on topic.

I know, I was just saying it was the one that came out in 2013, never did get one of them.

Topic went off ages ago, neither of them have 64 cores.
The Pi2 two has the same processor as the Pi3 at the moment, unless you can find an old one.
I have the old one.

How did your Oreo upgrade go? quite a few failures in the forums.

There are vendors that are still claiming to have the Pi2Bv1.1 in stock.

Apparently, not all production moved the the 2837. Or at least, not immediately.

Your webpage still says it uses the A7 https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/ra ... 2-model-b/
(I just looked to see if it said both versions).
Is it still actively made, or only on demand from some buisiness to RS/Farnell.

I was referring to the original Pi 2 (with the BCM2836). The Pi 2 Rev 1.2 is essentially the Pi 3 but without the built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, and with the processor underclocked at 900MHz.

Upgrade to Oreo was fine, in fact I'm typing this from my Tab 4 running Oreo.

The reason it still says it uses the A7 is to avoid confusion with owners of the original Pi 2. I do think that they should include specs for both models.

I was under the impression that the decision to shift the Pi2B to the BCM2837 was in the interests of inventory reduction and cost savings by dropping the use of the BCM2836 altogether. I would imagine that any residual supplies of BCM2836 SoCs got used up (beats throwing them away if people will still buy the finished boards), but that should have ended quite a while ago. Now it should just be a matter of flushing the remaining boards out of inventory

Just wondering: what device tree file does the Pi 2 Rev 1.2 use (*.dtb)? Does it use the same one as the Pi 3, or the original Pi 2?

Re: Raspberry pi 4 - x64 Processor ?

First time in rhia forum, so please be nice. Just posted a new forum topic on ‘anyone using the new x86 Raspian?’ I am reading here some discussion on the topic. First, my new topic is alive and well in the www.fliightaware.com discussion forum on ADSB flight information. Turns out they have an app, dmp1090_fa, which runs on the Pi. In fact, they have over 19,000 or so installations in the field.

But I digress. Working with others, we have downloaded the new image, burned it USB, booted in on PC, and it runs great. Except WiFi is not working. My post mentioned above provides some detail on what ‘not working’ means. Any one here tried to the new download and, if so, did their WiFi work?

My Pi has been continuously online using this Flightaware app since late Oct and thus I would like to think I’m a member of this really cool Pi club. All suggestions are appreciated.

Cheers

No such thing (Was: Raspberry pi 4 - x64 Processor ?)

Just posted a new forum topic on ‘anyone using the new x86 Raspian?’
Just to pre-empt a certain poster, let me be the first to say:

There is no such thing as "x86 Raspbian".

There. That's taken care of.

Hmm, this thread is so far off the original topic, I think it's time to close.
