Re: Cannot boot Buster via USB after Bullseye upgrade

I would try the following steps: 1. Write a fresh Buster image to an SD card (do NOT use NOOBS or PINN) and boot it. 2. Update Buster (sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade). 3. Download Raspberry Pi EEPROM Manager , make it executable (chmod +x rpi-eeprom-mgr), and run it (sudo ./rpi-eep...

Re: init_resize.sh : How to calculate ROOT_DEV_SIZE ?

In init_resize.sh: ROOT_DEV_SIZE=$(cat "/sys/block/${ROOT_DEV_NAME}/size") TARGET_END=$((ROOT_DEV_SIZE - 1)) ROOT_DEV_SIZE is the size of the device in sectors (512 bytes each). TARGET_END is the last sector number of the device. If you're trying to modify init_resize.sh so that it will le...

I've never seen a case where the default value fails. Needing to add 4.5 GB to the default value is really strange. There's something pathological about the files you're backing up, but I can't imagine what it is. Might you be using several (or large) sparse-allocated files somewhere? If you do, '-...
