Wont boot after installing 32gig disk image - Nfhtronnfh - 12-10-2018

Trying to install a premade 32 gig disk image that has tons of rooms already on it. I've tried 2 different image burning programs,  I format to fat 32 before writing it onto the sd card once it has completed writing I put it in the freeplay cm3 and it wont boot. Just a white screen and the green light never comes on.  Wondering if anyone else has had similar issues and if they managed to solve it. Because it would save a ton of time to copy someone else's disk image.

You should be able to get just about any image to work, but it isn't super simple. You need to edit some things and add some things to an image to get it to work on the Freeplay CM3.

I keep some notes on how to add support for the hardware elements of the Freeplay CM3 and Freeplay Zero at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jsMiFlVP3VeDBXceNmpgAKqP-99v2K9L3xj09K-zHSQ/

That is some good information and explains why and how to do it. I'll give it a try,  thanks!
