Hi, i need help, th micro SD industrial use 8 Gb not work to my raspberryshake, i procedure to install unzip file and not see rs.local to my shake…
Hello Germancito, and welcome to our community.
Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue you are experiencing with your microSD card. Here are some checks you can do to solve your situation.
rs.local page is not accessible, please try to locate your RS device on your local network. You can find it with an app like Fing (Fing App | Network toolkit and scanner | Fing ), which shows all the IP addresses of any device connected to your local network, or through your modem/router administration page. More details here: Find your Raspberry Shake’s IP with Fing — Instructions on Setting Up Your Raspberry Shake
If Fing manages to find it, it will appear marked with an icon of a raspberry. You can then connect to your Shake by entering its IP address in the address bar of your browser. It is the equivalent of typing
rs.local, and it should get you to the same page.
If the above doesn’t work/doesn’t show any Shake device, in burning the microSD card, have you tried the alternative burning method from the instructions? In some instances, it has proved to be helpful. I’ll leave it here for your convenience:
Alternative Burning Method: If the above procedure did not work and the Shake does not boot properly, follow the instructions below: 1. Confirm your micro-SD card is formatted to FAT32, cards usually come from the manufacturer pre-formatted. 1.1 Format Utilities: https://howtorecover.me/best-programs-usb-flash-drives-formatting. 1.2 Use one of these to format your SD card, to guarantee all available space is, actually, available. 1.3 Confirm your SD card has at least 7GB of free space. 2. Download [raspishake-release.zip](https://gitlab.com/raspberryShake-public/raspShake-SD-img/raw/main/raspishake-release.zip) to your computer. 3. Extract the file 'rshake-os.xz' (inside 'raspishake-release.zip') to a location outside the original zip file. 4. Decompress the file ('tar' on Linux, Winzip/Winrar on Windows). 5. Burn the decompressed file to the SD card using your preferred tool (such as Balena Etcher or Raspberry Pi Imager), or use the 'dd' command from the command line. 6. Insert the micro-SD card into the Raspberry Shake's Raspberry Pi computer and power up the device. 6.1. The Raspberry Pi computer will begin the Raspberry Shake software image unpacking task automatically. 7. Wait until the unpacking task completes and your Raspberry Shake has re-booted. 7.1. Depending on the card size and type, this will take between 10 and 17 minutes. 7.2. During this process the LED lights will display B-solid on the Raspberry Shake board, and R&G-solid on the Raspberry Pi computer. 7.3. When completed, the LED's will be B-solid on the Raspberry hake board, with R-solid and G-blinking on the Raspberry Pi computer. 7.2. As well, you will know the system has booted when you are able to find an IP address on the network belonging to the Raspberry Shake. For example, either via your router interface, or using a program like Fing. 8. And from all of us here at Shake Central, Enjoy your Raspberry Shake!
If this second procedure above still doesn’t work, have you tried with another commercial-grade (MLC) or industrial-grade (SLC) microSD card and checked if a new one solves the issue?
Thank you for your collaboration.
