Possibility to upgrade RPI 4 to TorizonCore 6.x


I grew quite fond of testing our application progress, ideas, or infrastructure topics on a Raspberry Pi 4. So, our Colibri IMX8 boards stay more stable until we upgrad them as well.

Now, I would like to work out any possible issues with TorizonCore 6.x before I upgrade our real hardware. Is there a way to run version 6.x on the RPI? The current JSON provided only offers an image from August 2022.

Best regards,

I take it back - seems as if RPI is already updated according to hostnamectl:

Kernel: Linux 5.10.83-torizon-standard

Hi @KidIcarus ,

Glad to hear that. So we can consider this as solved?

Best Regards

Hi @kevin.tx

It is nearly solved. How can I update the Raspberry Pi? Currently, it shows it runs on version 6.0—via the Cloud platform, I can’t initiate any updates. Is there another way to keep it up to date?

Best regards

Could you clarify what you mean by you “can’t initiate any updates”? Are you using our platform to do the updates? What exactly is happening?

Hi @jeremias.tx,

Sorry for the lack of details. In app.torizon.io I select my provisioned Raspberry Pi:

But there are no packages available

I thought it should be possible to upgrade from 6.0 to 6.2?

Best regards,

We only publish TorizonCore OS images for our supported hardware. TorizonCore on the Raspberry Pi is an experimental configuration. On our Labs page for this: Torizon for Raspberry Pi and x86-64 devices

We even state that performing an OTA update on the OS/TorizonCore for Raspberry Pi is not a supported feature at this time.

Best Regards,

I apologize for the confusion – I never checked that website. I only found the possibility via GitHub, and there I read:

Torizon is a software platform that simplifies the process of developing and maintaining embedded software. It allows you to configure the system for IoT/IIoT with over the air updates (OTA) quickly and easily, so you can focus on application development instead of Linux builds.

I know now better. Maybe it is possible to add the current image version to the GitHub page or somehow show that there has been an update. I know this is currently an experimental project. I just wanted to provide some feedback because it is a really great addition. Especially for rapid prototyping or early application development.

Best regards,
