I have this strange problem
I have this New Raspberry Pi 2 (I have 3) but the problem i having whit this one is that i cant install any raspberry 2 images on it, when i boot it i having the colord screen and it not starting op, just like it not reading the card, and its not just osmc, i have try a lot af others Pi2 images same problem? But I can install Pi1 images os it?
and yes it is a PI2 on the bord it says Raspberry pi model B+ v1.2
any one ther can helpe me?? Thanx
Pretty sure that’s a Pi 1. Try this [image] (http://download.osmc.tv/installers/diskimages/OSMC_TGT_rbp1_20150412.img.gz) for the Raspberry Pi 1.
This is a Pi 2:
Mine say “Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v1.1” so it’s looking like you don’t have a Pi 2
This is the back side of the Raspberry Pi B+
This is the back side of the Raspberry pi 2
The Raspberry pi model B+ v1.2 is a Pi1
Way dont you belive me?
this is my pi
That’s a Pi 1 NOT a PI 2 Why don’t you believe me??
becore this is the 3 one im making the 2 othres is just like this one and the work whit osmc2 img and i do also have a pi1 and thats have a sd card
Yes it is a Pi1
Here is a photo of my Pi 2
It’s hard to tell if you’re trolling or just in denial, but that is absolutely 100% definitely a Pi 1 B+ and not a Pi 2.
I have both so I know what I’m talking about
They look very similar especially on the top but there are two easy ways to tell them apart. The main CPU chip on the top of a Pi 2 says Broadcom BCM2836, while on the Pi 1 B+ it doesn’t say Broadcom, it will say Samsung or Hynix as it is actually a ram chip with the CPU buried underneath.
The other way to tell is to look at the bottom of the board as shown in thansen_dk’s photos - a Pi 2 has a black ram chip on the bottom while the Pi 1 B+ does not. (On the B+ it’s on top of the CPU on the top side of the board)
The fact that it will boot a Pi 1 image and not a Pi 2 image tells you every thing you need to know.
If you’ve been sold that as a Pi 2 then either the seller has made a mistake or you’ve been had.
Stop wasting my team’s time.
We have hundreds of thousands of users running OSMC on a daily basis. If the install process was flawed we would have known about it.
You have a Raspberry Pi 1. Select ‘Raspberry Pi 1’ accordingly. I will update the installer to make this more clear.
