I am using an 8GB Raspberry Pi 4B.

If I do an 'rpi-eeprom-update', it says:

CURRENT: Thu 03 Sep 2020 12:11:43 PM UTC (1599135103)
LATEST: Thu 03 Sep 2020 12:11:43 PM UTC (1599135103)

So it appears I have the latest stable firmware.

I downloaded 1.5.4 back in late August. I'm just now getting around to trying it out. The MD5 hash is DC49C06ABA5B3E24247116852FC299B9.

Should I download again?

Thanks

It worked! I downloaded a fresh copy of 1.5.4, and it worked fine. Thanks! I used the Software Update tool this rime. Last time I did the update from the command line using the apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. I doubt that made any difference, though.

Also, I tried to boot from a USB 3 thumb drive again. It boots, but the wifi still doesn't work (in either hot spot mode or connection to local wifi). I wonder if the the thumb drive is causing 2.4GHz interference? I may try a SSD or external USB wifi antenna to see if those will work. The USB boot isn't a deal breaker for me, just something I would like to do eventually.

Hello,

I bought StellarMate in 2018. This week I downloaded the image. Using my trusted method of building an image, I created the image on a 400G drive. My first try failed. I viewed the image and only AstroBerry folder was present. My second try produced the obligatory “this drive is no longer formatted” in Windows 10 version 2004. Maybe I zigged when I should have zagged. The AstroBerry empty folder was it.

The third try I did not format the drive. I placed the image over the previous session. This went much faster. I then used my RPI3B+ with Ubuntu to fsck the volume. Sure enough, the volume had a dirty bit. Hmm... I ejected the Volume from Windows. I umounted the volume under Ubuntu. Why the dirty bit? Looks like either the image tool or the image has a dirty bit.

Once the dirty bit was repaired, the volume booted fine. I am now running on StellarMate.
