Migration from Rpi1 -> Rpi2

Migration from Rpi1 -> Rpi2
Having seen that this should now work I tried it today.

I took a microSD and flashed the pi1 backup to it, placed it in a SD adaptor and tested it in Pi1 - No problem. It worked as expected. I removed from /boot/config.txt all the cpu/memory clock speeds and also the mpeg licence.

I placed the microSD into a Pi2 and it seems to get stuck in the boot process. The activity light flickers a little and then it just sits there. Huh I have no screen attached so can't see how far it got, maybe try again tomorrow.....

Is there something else I need to do, or is this not possible with Xbian image?

Thanks.

You do not have to remove/change mpeg license. Up to 8 comma separated licenses can be put there (I have three configured Smile)

Yes / No Big Grin

I did this when I bought first RPi2 (about two years ago), was too lazy to configure everything from scratch Tongue. But you have to install Kernel for RPi2 when card is still plugged in a RPi1, because kernel built for RPi1 does NOT support RPi2/3 and vice versa.

RE: Migration from Rpi1 -> Rpi2
Thanks for the helpful info. Sorry for delay in replying, been in bed with a bad back.

As for the update to pi2, it sounds like a recipe for disaster based on my previous luck, so will leave it a while until I have more time to look into it. Maybe in a month or two..... Smile

Yes / No Tongue

In theory it looks simple. Power up Pi1, install pi2 kernel, power down and move card to pi2.

In practice I need to do more research and then check in with what I think the process is before I do it and make a mess of things.
It's a new learning curve for me, that's going to do me some good I hope. As a hint, is the kernel for pi2 in xbian github, or where?

Kernel package is like all other packages in XBian's repository, for example you can find kernel for rpi2/3 here

You have to do a bit more:

1) you have to modify file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian
change everything you find rpi_jessie (or rpi_stretch) to rpi2_jessie (resp rpi2_stretch)
2) sudo apt-get update # refresh package list
3) cd /tmp; apt-get download linux-image-bcm2836 # download latest kernel package for rpi2/3
4) sudo dpkg --force-all -r xbian-package-kernel # remove rp1 kernel
5) sudo dpkg -i linux-image-bcm2836*.deb # install rpi2/3 kernel
6) if dpkg complains any dependency errors, you have to run sudo apt-get install -f
7) shut down and move sd-card into rpi2

@Nachteule

Thank you for taking the time to post this. Clear step-by step instructions. Marvelous! - This should be in the FAQ on the main web page for others who might be going down the same route...

I'll be able to try this much sooner now Smile

RE: Migration from Rpi1 -> Rpi2
You must be well clever - it worked a treat!

OK, I know there was a little test in the first line, but I got past that one Wink

A lot of errors came up, but I simply ignored them and continued.

End result is new pi2 working with all settings retained. Backups, SSH keys, DAC, LCD, RTC, FSTAB all as before Smile

Thank you so much....I must get you a beer one day! Smile %:

I suppose step 4 produced them, that's why you have to use option --force-all

Oh, I forgot: you should have to change url in file /etc/apt/sources.list, there is still raspbian repo configured, but you have to set up a debian repo there.
This could cause issues when running updates

Angel Maybe you aren't so clever after all Tongue

I made the changes and now when I go to upgrade in xbian-config it says 437 packages selected for upgrade. Does this sound right to you? I remember when going to jessie from wheezy there was a big upgrade like this, but I try to update I get a W gpg error and nothing will update...??? So an authentication problem it seems....
Maybe you can regain your clever status with this one! Wink

RE: Migration from Rpi1 -> Rpi2
Sad

...or maybe not. I can update now but cannot upgrade. I get a DPKG error(1). I have tried a lot of things I have seen on the web and so far nothing works. Sad

No matter what I tried so far I get.

RE: Migration from Rpi1 -> Rpi2
AFAIR I had same problem, but was not able to reproduce it

Please try:

Terminal

sudo ln -s ../init.d/mountkernfs.sh /etc/rcS.d/S04mountkernfs

and after that run again your commands

RE: Migration from Rpi1 -> Rpi2
I spent 6 hours trying to figure this out today and nothing I found came even close to that - Thank you.

But it's not over yet. Out of the 437 packages to be upgraded, it stopped with 93 left to go with the following message....

Terminal
initctl: Unknown job: S01mountkernfs.sh x
x insserv: warning: script 'S01mountkernfs.sh' missing LSB tags x
x insserv: Service mountdevsubfs has to be enabled to start serv x
x insserv: exiting now! x
x update-rc.d: error: insserv rejected the script header x
x dpkg: error processing package hdparm (--configure): x
x subprocess installed post-installation script returned error x
x Errors were encountered while processing: x
x hdparm x
x E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I cannot seem to get past this point. Time for bed anyway....
