PITFT PLUS RETROPIE on rpi3

by rompelstilchen on Sat May 07, 2016 11:18 am

hello,

I followed this tutorial
https://learn.adafruit.com/running-open ... itft-setup
but the pitft I bought does not have the same resolution (480x320)

so I followed the tutorial but setting my own resolution ,and now my raspberry is bricked, I have to reflash teh sd card
the tft screen is white and my computer screen does not display anything

can someone tell me how to set this up ? or recover the raspberry maybe ?

I used this setting in the config.txt

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
    hdmi_force_hotplug=1
    hdmi_group=2
    hdmi_mode=87
    hdmi_cvt=480 320 60 1 0 0 0
    dtoverlay=pitft35-resistive-overlay,rotate=90,speed=80000000,fps=60


thanks (I tried first with the easy install image, the screen works fine)

I managed to make it work

- install a retropie distribution image
- follow instructions here to install fbcp : https://learn.adafruit.com/running-open ... itft-setup
- setup easy install instruction (by command line of course) : https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pit ... sy-install
- no more sound, even after rechecking it outputs via 3.5 audio jack
so I reran the retropie setup script and it worked fine :-)
