Change for Raspberry 3B+



I have OSMC on my RPi 2 and I would like to buy the model 3 B+

I would like to disable bluetooth and ethernet and know what I need to change for in config.txt or other files ?



One way to do it

echo "dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt" | sudo tee -a /boot/config.txt

ethernet just dont plug anything into and your all set.

Ok, and for config.txt ?


Exactly the command that Toast gave. It will enter text “dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt” into /boot/config.txt file.

And then there is nothing else to do for the specifics of 3B+ ?

EDIT: Why in “information system” “hardware” it tells me the sepcs of the RPI 2


Up !


Please explain the issue in more detail.


Here, RPi information is not correct, right ?



Those specs look ok to me. The cpu speed of 1.4Ghz seems to indicate Pi3+. You can look up the revision code here to confirm it.

I can see though that Hardware is reporting your system as BCM2835 when it should read BCM2837, I see a similar thing with my 2B, I also see BCM2835 when I should see BCM2836, hopefully this will explain it for you.


Yes, is same thing !
