  • Replacing Raspberry Pi - What should I do?

    Hello,
    I've been looking for something, but I haven't found anything that fits. I have a Raspberry Pi with Pi24 and a DVB-T stick. I want to replace my existing Raspberry Pi with another one. What do I have to consider?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Greetings
    Marvin

    In a perfect world, transfer the SD card and it will still work as expected.

    However a large change in hardware may require the OS be upgraded first.

    That said, The Pi24 image instructions do not work on the Pi-4B as it is not yet supported out of box in their setup image. So if this works for that is unknown

          Slip out microSD card from 3B+ and slip into Zero W.
          Plug-out dongle from 3B+ and plug in into Zero W
          Power up.
          Most likely you be up and running without doing anything else

                On the RPi 4 you have to install a normal Raspbian Lite image and then use the install script and it should work.

                  YES, I have tested both the following on Pi-4B

                  CASE 1 - Pi24 image:
                  The latest Pi24 image (pi24-2.2.0.img) is based on Raspbian Buster and works on Pi-4B.
                  https://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/...latest.img.zip


                  CASE 2 - Raspbian Buster image:
                  The latest fr24feed (1.0.25-3) installed by following bash script will work on Pi-4B with Raspbian Buster
                  Code:
                  sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://repo.feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"
