Hey Chris,
How did you run the script? Was it directly from the terminal or from the shortcut on the Desktop. Can you try running it as root and see if that helps.

Sorry for the troubles.

So I re-ran several things using sudo (see below). It appears that I don’t have /dev/i2c-0 but do have /dev/i2c-1

I then ran the same commands in the “Root terminal” without the sudo attached to each command (below) with the only difference being that the “Problem ID” was 7376 instead of what is shown below 31633.

Thanks!
Chris

Hey,
Are you using Dexter Industries Image or your own image?

The SD card’s image was bad (after formatting and such), so I downloaded the Dexter Image, option 2 from:

Hi,
Looks like your firmware folder does not have the correct firmware file for the update or it is corrupted. It should have the files like this:https://github.com/DexterInd/GoPiGo/tree/master/Firmware . Can you try updating the files or use Git clone to clone the repository again .
