Enabling Wifi issue


Hi @spockfish

Just changed my Pi 2 for a PI 3 B. I would like to enable wifi but it does not show on the netwotk page. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hmmm… your device is not recognized as Pi 3 B.

Are you familiair with SSH? We can then check a few things. The model is being identified by it’s CPU identifier, and what might be the case is that your device is from a new revision and because of that not recognized by RoPieee.

Hi Harry @spockfish

I can ssh in. Let me know the user and pass and what to look for. It was a brand new PI 3 so probably new revision.

it’s specifically about the CPU revision. And they are constantly being updated.

So, login with user: root and passwd: root and run the following command:

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep ‘Revision’ | awk ‘{print $3}’

Hi Harry @spockfish
It returned a52082. Does that sound right?

Wow. What I suspected, this one is not in the list.

So this is 3 B+?

No, it’s just a regular ‘3 B’. I looked it up.

Hi Harry @spockfish
Do you think you will be able to add this version of PI in the near future?


Yes, patch is already in. I expect to release within a week or 2.

Thanks Harry @spockfish
Version 110 has my pi3 now running on wifi and very stable.

I have another pi2 with an attached screen and allo digione. I can’t seem to get it to upgrade. I have rebooted it and waited a couple hours but it is still at version 100. Is there a way to force an update?


Can you send me feedback? Then I can have a look why it isn’t updating…

Hi Harry @spockfish

Are you familiair with SSH?

Same issue here @spockfish ,stuck on 100. Feedback c3f73bdf1873bc68 … I’m familiar with SSH.

He @Wakajazz,

There seems to be something wrong with the update timer configuration.
Would be great if you can show me that info.

Here we go:

Login with ssh, username ‘root’ and password ‘root’

run the following command to get me the info I want:

cat /etc/systemd/system/ropieee-update.timer.d/ropieee-update-override.conf

And then, while your at it, update with:

Thanks @spockfish
