Raspberry Pi 4 Support

Hi,

Does GrovePi+ support Raspberry Pi 4? The last post on this topic was in early July, so I am hoping for an update here.

Thanks,

Steve

Hello Steve,

I am wondering if I am facing the same matter?! I have a RPI 4 (4GB) and installed the GrovePi+ HAT on it. LED on the HAT is on.
I tried installing the software through the install.sh script but it failed. Then I started with a fresh Raspbian SD card once more and used “curl -kL dexterindustries.com/update_grovepi | bash” and a reboot which seemed to work (with some errors and warnings though - too fast for a newbe to tell how serious).
When running the test “sudo i2cdetect -y 1” the following output is shown, which I understand is not successful:

 0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  a  b  c  d  e  f

00: – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- –

30: – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – --
40: – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – --
50: – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – --
60: – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – -- – --

I connected the LED module to D5 (D4 not accessible right now due to the case), changed the script to D5 and it runs, but the LED stays dark.

Really disappointed!

Greetings, Marcus

OK, found a post about RPI4 - they are still working on it…

Hello, is there any update on this please. I just tried installing on the Pi 4 and had issues with failed install and non detection of the board. Many thanks.

Did you use:

And apparently this work-around is needed:

Hello @pjuett

What board are you trying to install? And did you start from Raspbian for Robots, or from Raspbian itself?

I was trying GrovePi+ on the Raspberry Pi 4 4GB [with the September Buster release].
I switched to the Pi 3 due to time constraints on the project.
Will be sure to revisit the Pi 4 and Grove at some point.
Thanks for the follow up.

There’s been a fix today for the grovepi installation on standalone Raspbian.
