Hi Rommell761,

I have the 3B+ and had the same issue. Downloaded the 128GB image, flashed it, and get 4 slow red blinks, followed by 4 fast red blinks. No green.

The following worked for me: I had a previous SD card with Raspian installed on it, booting fine on the 3B+.

I renamed 2 files on the SD card with virtualman's image… add extension .bak to bootcode.bin and start.elf.

Then I copied bootcode.bin and start.elf from my working raspian SD card over to the virtual man SD card.

It now boots and begins to load Emulation Station, however now I am stuck with it crashing out to the terminal while trying to load Emulation Station upon boot.

This is now where I am stuck.

I think I read somewhere there was a version of emulation station that would crash on retropie….(a bug that was fixed.) Going to try to update the emulation station on the SD card and see what happens.

Oh and btw, my wireless usb logitech keyboard doesn't work with it, or retropie has probably frozen up by the point of the crash.
