Hello, I have just received my pi 3 and im trying to put OSMC on, Each time I try the Pi puts up the rainbow splash screen and the green light flashes 4 times long and 4 times short in that cycle, it never gets any further, I have tried reformatting the SD card several times, and put NOOBS on the SD card to see if it was the card, and NOOBS booted first time, tried OSMC again and got the orriginal result. Any one have any ideas? id really like to upgrade my pi but its not looking too promising. Oh and further to that, I have tried a KNOWN working version of OSMC from my pi 2 that I am looking to replace and got the same result (different SD card) any help will be hugely appreciated!
My pi 2 version wont work, or rather didn’t work, so I just assumed I needed a fresh install, trying NOOBS to get OSMC working now, will let you know how that goes…just a thought on the trailing end of what you said, I’m not sure if I locally updated the image before I tried it, its a spare I have, that will be another avenue to try!
agreed, didn’t think to look there thought it was going to be too generic for my specific problem, just updating on the pi 2 to test on the 3 im sure it will work as the guys work their asses off and are superb at what they do
Stephen, for clarity, you need to put an SD card into a Pi 2, update the software version by going to Settings, My OSMC, Updates (cloud at the top in the middle), then go to Manual Controls, and Scan for updates now, update the card in the Pi 2, once it has rebooted, shut it down, remove the card and it should work in the Pi 3, this has worked for me.
Minor Mod edit to thread title. I’m funneling all duplicate threads (yes, that’s like 4 already today) here because ppl can’t seem to read todays posts or even be bothered to use the forum search function.
