The Walkthrough for 3.5 TFT and Stretch

Even though this is a criticism, I truly do appreciate the service and documentation, scrpts, libraries, etc you offer with your products.

I appreciate the fact that you update the forums and stuff all the time, but could you update your documentation for the PiTFT? I spent over an hour to find out that the kernel you have in the tutorial breaks the bootloader. In the forum you folks do supply a solution (back in November) and it seem to work, but it would have been nice if the docs were updated. Thank you.

For anyone having the issue I am, use the image you want and run:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
cd ~
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/adafruit/Adafruit-PiTFT-Helper/master/adafruit-pitft-helper2.sh
chmod +x adafruit-pitft-helper2.sh
sudo ./adafruit-pitft-helper2.sh

I'll pass this along. There are so many things that need attention due to changes beyond our control it takes time to get it all done.

the guides have all been updated. pretty much everything changed so it required a lot of rewriting!
