Re: Reading from a wireless SD card

This is great!

After going through the documentation of the SD card I found that if you make changes to the card through wifi, the only way for the host to pick up the changes is to unmount and mount again, but I thought you couldn't do that directly from Ultibo.

I'll be sure to try this out.

Reading from a wireless SD card

After finding out that booting the Pi Zero W from USB wasn't going to help too much with the hassle of copying files to the sd card and inserting the card each time, I figured out I would try with a wireless SD card. A bit backwards since the Zero W already has wireless connectivity hardware built i...

Re: Booting Pi Zero from USB?

Timeout related? In the end I didn't have to do that. Just adding a file named "timeout" sounded super suspicious too :P Might get some debug output on the serial port, Is this a bootcode.bin hack? No, it is not hacked in any way, just the regular file you can find in https://github.com/r...

Re: Booting Pi Zero from USB?

It turns out the method does work, for future reference that is 1) Copy all the files into a Fat32 formatted USB stick, that is kernel.img, bootcode.bin, fixup.dat and start.elf, plus the rest of the optional files. 2) Copy just the single file bootcode.bin into an empty Fat32 micro sd 3) Plug every...

Booting Pi Zero from USB?

That's pretty much it, is there a trick to getting a pi zero to boot from a USB device? Is it even possible? I am not clear on that. The only information I could find is this https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/62965/boot-zero-w-from-usb-device and this https://github.com/raspberrypi/doc...

Re: Good small display recommendations anyone?

I printed out to a console window all the properties of the default framebuffer device to see what was available in this new display. I used this program. Commented next to each console write line are the values I get. program test; {$mode delphi}{$H+} uses RaspberryPi, GlobalConfig, GlobalConst, Gl...

Re: Good small display recommendations anyone?

I just got a new HDMI display and it's pretty cool, getting it up and running was painless and the refresh rate is really good! Can do a regular while loop to update the whole framebuffer effortlessly. Still no vsync support thought, which is a bit of a bummer, have to set a fixed wait time between ...

Re: Good small display recommendations anyone?

I have been looking at more of these things and I think I know what I want now, the problem is I am not sure it exists. I have seen a few HDMI displays that can be connected directly to the Pi through the GPIO pins for power, that would be very useful, because I really would like to avoid having to ...

Re: Good small display recommendations anyone?

Actually I am not interested in the touch functionality at all, but it seems all of this types of displays support it. It's more difficult to find something without a touch screen.

I must be getting old, but touch will never beat a button press, like ever not in a million years :P
