Converting 2 separate existing Oses into a multi-boot with PINN

Have you bought an HDD for your Raspberry Pi recently and want to transfer all your separate OSes to the HDD? With this tutorial, you will be able to transfer almost any OS into a multi-boot. Furthermore, you can also boot your Raspberry Pi from a Micro SD card, but the filesystem is on the HDD. Basically what this means is that the boot partitions will be stored on a Micro SD card and that the root partitions will be stored on the HDD. In this tutorial, we will be converting 1 Raspbian and 1 RetroPie Micro SD card into a multi-boot. Continue reading “Converting 2 separate existing Oses into a multi-boot with PINN”

Increase your Raspberry Pi RAM using ZRam!

Is your Raspberry Pi running out of RAM quickly? Have you searched found a way to upgrade your Raspberry Pi RAM? I didn’t think so.  ZRam is basically compressed memory similar/same to swap memory. This tutorial is based on NovaSpiritTech’s ZRam script, so credits to him.

Things needed:

  • A Raspberry Pi 2 or better
  • Raspbian on 8GB Micro SD card (minimum)
  • Keyboard, mouse, power supply, monitor/TV

Installing PINN on your Raspberry Pi

PINN (PINN is not NOOBS)can easily be installed on your Raspberry Pi is easy to do. It is better then NOOBS because PINN allows your to edit the config.txt file straight from the startup application. This can be useful if you overclocked your Raspberry Pi too much and it becomes unstable. PINN also supports custom OSes. You can add your existing versions of Raspbian, RetroPie, etc. As well as coming with large database of images, you can make multiple copies of the same exact OS. You can keep boot files on an SD card and keep OSes on a USB drive if needed. This means you only need a 4GB SD card!
