Posting this to help others who may encounter the same problem I did…

I downloaded this image and it wouldn’t boot on my Pi 4 8GB with upgraded firmware to boot from USB.

To get it working, I had to boot it from another Pi 4 4GB that hadn’t been upgraded to boot from USB yet. Then go to Terminal and do the following:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

After that, the image boots and runs great on the Pi 4 with upgraded firmware.

Thanks, Damaso! Awesome image!!

That doesn’t work. The update and upgrade upgrade the software but not the firmware. And how do you boot from an usb from a pi that hasn’t been upgraded to boot from a usb? That post needs clarification.

1. I updated my 8GB Pi to new firmware that allows USB booting.
2. I tried the default Damaso image from an SD card on the 8GB Pi. It did not boot.
3. I tried the default Damaso image from an SD card on my 4GB Pi that did not have the firmware update for USB booting. The Damaso image booted and worked.
4. I performed the update/upgrade on the Damaso image on my 4GB Pi.
5. Now, the Damaso image boots and runs perfectly on my 8GB Pi.

I have not tried cloning the Damaso image from SD card to USB drive.

Your post is much clearer. To be fair your title is a bit misleading since it references usb booting which would suggest that you tried booting the image via a usb drive instead of a sd card. I now understand that your attempts involved a sd card and not a usb drive.

The title was changed by a mod…

Thank you a lot, this solved my issue too.

And as far as I can see, this info should be included on the download page of the image.

Hi. I have a RPI4b 4GB up to date. I had to do some mods to boot the image from USB HDD. It boots the intro video and after thet i get the message “failed to add service – already in use?”. Any ideas what the problem could be. Many thanks in advance.

Hello, I’m having the same issue. Did you manage to solve the problem? I tried googling but I found only>

EmulationStation failing to start, "failed to add service – already in use?" from RetroPie

It’s 1 y old and it didn’t help.

Thanks
