I broke the main MiSTer

Post by theimporter »

So I transferred the new main (20190609) via FileZilla, but now I get a black screen when booting. I can still access the cores via FileZilla, but I can't control from the MiSTer hardware itself. I tried sending the file from both ASCII and Binary mode in FileZilla, but no differences.

What can I do about this?

Download latest Linux release and update all included files.

So are you basically saying that we should reinstall from scratch every time a new Main MiSTer core is released? Is this core coded with Windows 10 or something?

I'm saying you can either:

a) unpack the rar file and copy everything from folder "files" to the root of SD card (exfat partition)
b) run the installer and press the update button

in both cases it will just replace the required files without neediung to reformat.

This is great, thank you!

I used the updater script and midway through, the screen went black, and stayed black. I thought there was a problem with the MiSTer as well. These instructions worked for me. Thanks again.
