Success with Adafruit PiTFT 2.2 hat

Postby awx » Fri Mar 27, 2015 3:56 am

Thanks to some help from WarheadsSE on irc, my pi2 is showing the console on a Adafruit PiTFT 2.2 hat.

The steps needed for the console were:
  • Download the customized OS image for this display from Adafruit.
  • burn that image to some sdcard and copy the /boot/overlays/pitft22-overlay.dtb into the /boot/overlays/ folder of the arch linux sdcard.
  • Edit /boot/config.txt to include:
    Code: Select all
  • Edit /boot/cmdline.txt and insert this code after "rootwait"
    Code: Select all
    fbcon=map:10 fbcon=font:VGA8x8
  • reboot
