Software Setting

Raspberry Pi OS / Ubuntu / Kali and Retropie systems are supported.
When the LCD works on systems such as Raspberry Pi, the resolution must be manually set, otherwise, it will cause incorrect display resolution and affect the experience.

1. Please download the newest image from Raspberry Pi official website.
2. Download the compressed file to the PC and decompress it to get the .img file.
3. Connect the TF card to the PC, and use SDFormatter to format the TF card.
4. Open the Win32DiskImager software, select the system image prepared in step 1, and click write to burn the system image.
5. After the programming is completed, open the config.txt file in the root directory of the TF card, add the following code at the end of config.txt, save and eject the TF card safely.

hdmi_timings=1080 0 68 32 100 1080 0 12 4 16 0 0 0 60 0 85500000 0

6. Insert the TF card into the Raspberry Pi, power on the Raspberry Pi, and wait for a few seconds for a normal display.

Due to the circular screen feature, it is recommended to use the Raspberry Pi remote login tutorial for power on setup.

Working with PC
