Failed Update

Post by KC3IDI » Thu Apr 02, 2020 1:52 pm

I was trying to update my Pi-Star from 3.4.17 to the new 4.1.0 in hopes that this would finally let me be able to use my spot with my iphone. I could not use the update option from the dashboard so I tried flashing it to my sd card.

Now the spot does nothing. Can someone please direct me to a location to learn how to completely reset and restart my spot fresh. It is the JumboSpot that I have and I am not sure which pi it is connected to.

To start over it' gonna be a reburn.

Just one point, when 4.1 first boots it runs pistar-expand with expands all the storage space on the sd card so you might need to give it 5mins on the very first initial boot.

It's a one time process, only on the very first boot. And of course if ur using a bigger card will take longer than a smaller one.
