I received my DIY shake 4D today, assembled it with my RPi4 4gb, installed it in the case, and inserted the SD card. Powered it on and waited for the led show, but all I get is a solid blue on the 4D board and a solid Red on the Pi. It didn’t do anything for the better part of an hour. I waited, hoping that it would do something or that my router would discover it, but nothing happened.
I followed the directions using a newly formatted SD card and reimaged it with the files from raspishake-release, but that still did nothing. I’ve been at it for better part of 3 hours, and am at my wits end.
Well…it just so happens that on a whim I replaced the RPi4 with an RPi3B+ and what do you know? Yeah…It works, so apparently the software does not work with RPi4 as I was told by Branden. I’d like to be able to use my RPi4 as Branden said I’d be able to. So if you’d kindly create the image and send me a link I’d appreciate it.
not sure what happened, branden’s out at the moment and i will let you know after he’s back.
unethical? i’m going to assume there was a misunderstanding somewhere along the line and that humans sometimes make mistakes. if you mean to imply something was done here intentionally to fool you, you couldn’t be more wrong.
again, my sincere apologies that your model-4 computer isn’t yet able to work with the shake hardware, but it will.
I withdraw the unethical comment. This is my second shake, one I purchased from ebay, so you can understand my frustration at being told I could also use a shake with RPi4. In any case I’ve configured it and am moving it to the basement for permanent deployment. We will keep it dark until the testing for RPi4 has been completed and redeploy with the RPi4 as planned.
My reference to “Done!” on September 12th was adding the RPi 4 Model B option to the shop so that when you purchased we would send you the appropriate enclosure. On September 9th, I wrote, “We are working to release a software update (which is done over-the-air/ via Internet) to include support for the 4 Model B later this month/ early next month.” I hope your son enjoys Shaking as much as you do!
