Upgrading to Pi3 Model B+

#1

I have an RS3D which was purchased as a turnkey RS from the shop.

I now have an RPi3-B+, which I would like to swap with the RPi3-B which the RS3D is using.
Is there anything special I need to do, or can I simply disassemble the existing RS3D, swap the Pi’s, move the SD car from the 3B to the 3B+, and off I go? (I realize the station name will change as the MAC address of eth0 will of course be different).

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

There shouldn’t be anything special—but the OS may not be forwards-compatible with the B+. If this is the case, it will hang on boot. In that case I would say back up what you need on the card and re-burn the OS. The re-burned OS will recognize the B+ and configure properly on first boot.
