Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

I'm not quite sure what you are doing wrong here. Please have a read of the full README_PINN.md manual especially the section on Local Images on USB stick in case I am forgetting to mention some critical details that you are missing. For more specific help, it might be better to open an issue on my ...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

So you will suffer the same problem.
Whether you put PINN on an SD card or on a HDD, you MUST put your /os/Kali... folder on a separate USB drive to allow PINN to resize its own partition.

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

What error? The same error?

Was the drive you copied PINN to an SD card, or the same HDD drive as you copied Kali to?
If they are both the same HDD, then you are in the same position as earlier. They need to be different.

According to my Google searches, osmc works best at 1920x1080, so maybe try that resolution and let your TV upscale.

Re: No signal on HDMI when load OSMC and run 20-30 seconds

I just reconfirmed that OSMC Pi4 can be installed ok on a Pi400 with PINN (so PI4 should be the same). It booted up fine on my HDMIPI. So it could be that your problem is your monitor resolution, as we know Pi4 has problems with some resolutions (1366x768?). Can you try a different monitor? I would ...

Try using 7zip to unzip it instead of the standard built-in Windows facility. Some larger zip files use a different format that Windows does n...

Re: berry boot vs usb boot

1. You shouldn't worry about enabling the USB boot feature. It just gives you an extra option. It is enabled on the newer models anyway. It doesn't stop you booting from the SD card which normally takes precedence. It just means if you haven't got a bootable SD card, then it will try to boot from a ...

It's not clear to me exactly what you want to do. As this is your first post I assume you are fairly new to the raspberry pi, so creating a custom os for NOOBS is not the first thing I would expect you to do and is quite an advanced process. NOOBS can already install OSMC, but IIRC, not a 64bit vers...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

PINN now includes Twister OS v2.1.2

I marked this as installable for the Pi Zero 2, but it may not be very usable, especially if you want to use the desktop.
To get the desktop on a Pi Zero 2 or Pi3, it seems necessary to uncomment the `dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d` line in config.txt.

NOOBS is no longer supported and does not include those OSes anyway. PINN is an enhanced fork of NOOBS that can be used as a replacement. It supports Manjaro, Android (in the form of Lineage OS) and Retropie. They may not be the latest versions, but you may be able to upgrade them manually to the ve...
