Hey guys! Here’s an updated Patchbox OS image, it should run out of the box with Pi 4 8GB model and Pi Zero models.
The biggest difference since the last release is that it now by default runs with stock kernel, and has a new
kernel menu in
patchbox utility to switch to the realtime kernel variation. This allows us to release updated images quicker as new Raspberry Pi models get released, as the realtime kernel branch always lags behind for many months since new hardware gets introduced.
Also, we can display a warning about installing the realtime kernel on not-yet-compatible systems, as well as make a full backup of the stock kernel, so it’s possible to recover a working state just by copying files from /boot/backup to /boot on the sd card using your PC.
Please let us know in case you hit any issues or have any feedback regarding this build.
I already have 2020-03-14 image installed, do I need to reflash?
No, there’s no reason to reflash this image on top of your existing Patchbox OS image install. It’d be enough to install the updates as normal:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
- Direct download
The WiFi hotspot is on by default.
