Can't boot after install fbtft!

Post by michaelgino » Thu Dec 01, 2016 5:07 pm


I bought the 128×128 OLED screen from you, and I want to use with Raspbian on Pi 3 B model, like here, ... EBWZvkrL1d

I just start to try the setup, but after the first step,

Code: Select all

sudo wget -O /usr/bin/rpi-update
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/rpi-update
sudo REPO_URI= rpi-update
The Pi can’t boot anymore, after the logo everithing was black :/
Can anyone help me?

Thank you very much!

I have the same issue :( Can someone please help?

I didn't wire up the oled128 with the pi yet. Just using my usual HDMI display. Does that matter?

Yeah I think something happened around the Stretch edition of Raspbian. I'm slowly working out what the changes are, but one thing I've done is disable the HDMI and Audio via the /boot/config.txt file (as well as enabling SPI via that) which seems to improve things.

Still haven't worked out why the fbtft_device module won't auto load, but I've got it happening manually so that's something.
