Post Pi 2 and SD Card
It is not possible to just take out the sd card from a Pi B or B+ and put it in the new Pi 2 go here to find out what to do.... http://thepihut.com/blogs/raspberry-pi- ... BUNIQID%5D

I have carried out all the updates as suggested and Pi 2 now running my HotSpot...

Is there a performance benefit in upgrading to the Pi 2? What reason would one have to do this?

Probably the same reason I'm not still running my 386DX cpu with maths co-processor with Windows 3.11. Joking aside it operates much faster and VNC Viewer instead of dragging things across the screen they just go instantly and for Ā£30 it's cheap brain fodder for me at 70 years old.... use it or lose it !

Probably not Paddy but it gave me something to do and it is noticeably faster than the B+

That was really the root of my question. Whether it is worth the effort to upgrade and whether I would see a real performance increase. It may be worth doing just for the fun of it!

I will clear things up! Unless you use an IMG that is made for the ARM 7 chip set in the new Rasp v2 it will not do any thing more than all the other raspberry pi's..... It boots quicker! but once on does nothing More! + if using external usb devices you have to put a new line in the config for it to work correct! all this is on my face book page! :)

https://www.facebook.com/groups/892230700808085/

I have the Rasp v2 running for the last 2 days on test!

Post Re: Pi 2 and SD Card
My Pi 2 has now been running my hotspot off and on for the last week having done all the updates suggested in the link and also ran sudo raspi-config to clock it at 900MHz although you can clock it to 1GHz. As I don't intend to use Facebook I can't keep up to date with your info Karl....

Post Re: Pi 2 and SD Card
I have swapped my Pi B+ as supplied for a Pi 2. I downloaded and followed the latest Maryland-DStar documents etc. and it all seems to be fine apart from one thing ... can someone tell me how I install the dashboard that I had with the older set-up?

It was as supplied by Karl with my dual band DV-Mega hotspot. I had updated the repeater software to the 20150213 version. For the RPi 2 I downloaded the latest package directly from Maryland-DStar
