New Version Released For Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Boards! Click Here!


NetPi Raspberry Pi 2 Update

See the original release guide: http://blamethenetwork.com/netpi-raspberry-pi-network-analyzer/

Read First: In this release, the NetPi OS works on Pi 2 with LCD displays, but the touch function broken. Asking for community support in restoring touch functionality as I’ve exhausted most online resources to attempt fixes.

Release Notes:

  • Touch functionality is not currently working. You will still receive output to the Touch screens, and I have been able to boot this image on multiple LCD’s, from the JBtek 4″ to the Eleduino 3.5″ screens. We are requesting support from any users who can set this image up to identify what fix will restore touch capability which is lost during the kernel upgrade. Please email oncall@blamethenetwork.com or comment!
  • Same toolset as the Raspberry Pi B+ model image of NetPi currently. More features will be coming, but emphasis had to be placed on releasing an image compatible with the newer board first.

If you want to upgrade your B+ NetPi image to the Raspberry Pi 2 board:

  1. modify your /boot/config.txt  with ‘sudo vi /boot/config.txt’ or ‘sudo nano /boot/config.txt’ and add the following to the end of the file: ‘dtparam=spi=on’
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get upgrade
  4. sudo REPO_URI=https://github.com/notro/rpi-firmware rpi-update
  5. Reboot the system ‘sudo reboot’

You now should be able to move the SD card from a b+ board over to a Pi 2 board and boot with the display and NetPi interfaces. Again, touch is not functioning with this process, and will also break it on the Pi b+ board. However the upgrade is required to change kernel versions and allow the OS to work on the Pi 2 board.
