img file creating small FAT16 SD card

Hi all I'm using the mintyPiv3_20190721.img file, which I think is the latest, and Etcher to create my SD card. I'm using 64GB and larger cards because I wanted plenty of room for games and movies (KODI). But I still run out of space. I see the img file creates FAT16 formatted SD cards which doesn't...

Re: MintyPi 3- Powers from Pi USB but not Power Board

When I try to boot from battery the screen turns white, the disk (SD) access light flashes green, then after a second or two everything shuts down. It’s as i...

Strange software quirks

Hi all, I'm working on my third MintyPi and I've run into an odd quirk. I've assembled everything and noticed the display lights but doesn't seem to show any data. I figured it might be bad. I ordered another from eBay. Meanwhile... I figured I'd turn on WiFi and load up the card. Using the HDMI and...

Re: Another Lipo charging board

I see on the comments section of DX.com for the protected device someone said the charging current is more like 500ma. So you both could be right!

The max current listed in the specs might be a marketing, not engineering, measurement.

Suggested mods to MintyPi image

I've been thinking of a wish list for the image file (which has been a lifesaver). 1) Bluetooth audio setup in the menu 2) Default wifi as an access point. So we can SSH or SFTP from any machine, anywhere, with any device 3) Bluetooth keyboard setup in the menu 4) Diagnostics to test buttons, screen...

Re: I lifted the power pad off the sound card!

I actually bought a cheap rework station with a temperature controlled iron and hot air for $47 a while ago and finally got around to setting it up in my new apartment, and WOW did it make a difference for this part of the build. This one. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=1317132...

Re: [For Sale] mintyPi BatteryMonitor PCB Preorder

Helder, sorry for reposting here.

When did you start shipping the safe shutdown boards? I'm in the middle of a build and I was wondering if I should wait for the 4 boards I ordered.

Thanks. Sorry for being a pest.
