I have been tirelessly attempting to install this miner with cgminer on my raspberry pi 3 but I have no clue what to do or how to do it. I followed all of the steps listed to no avail. I formatted my sd card and started from scratch with a fresh copy of NOOBS/ Rasbian. I open a new terminal on raspbian and enter all of the steps. But nothing ever works. Can anyone please give me step by step instructions on how to accomplish this? Preferably like I'm a 5yr old. Because I'm ready to pull my hair out over all of this. All I want to do is mine some alt coins. So frustrating.

The instructions in the first post are about as simple as it gets.

What errors are you seeing?

If it's because of -O2 I'm gonna laugh because I've lost count of how many times someone has made that mistake.

Naw, I did read thru a couple pages and found that out. My RPI just doesn't recognize any usb plugged into it. I'm sure I'll come across a solution on this thread eventually. Only like 83 more pages to go tho.

Not sure I've come across that one. Not even keyboards or thumbdrives?

This is so frustrating. Lol. When I add dwc_otg.speed=1 into the cmdline.txt my keyboard goes dead but my USB mouse still works. And my USB hub still isn't detected. I wish I learned all this stuff when I was a kid so I wouldn't feel like such an idiot now.

That's great, but tech support doesn't really care. Maybe you should mention it in the sales board.

is there a way to revive the 2Pac in OFF mode without removing and putting it back?

Is there a way to search for answers to what are likely common problems asked anytime in the 14-month history of this thread?

Yes there is.

A way to search for answers, I mean.

For your question, no you pretty much have to pull the stick. Might be possible if you know which points on the board to short across and jump-start the string, but it'd only work right under certain conditions. Best to just pull the stick and re-insert.

Believe me @sidehack, I did search to avoid such answer.

Now even after buying a good powered hub the 2pac keeps going OFF even after few days of running perfectly, with 2 fans directed on the single 2pac being used, I did try all sides of the voltage knob and yet I still get OFF issue!
Isn't there a more illustrated graphical guide to setting the correct voltage?

Or how do I detect the current-voltage needed for the 250Mhz or 150Mhz?

Too bad searching FAQ section of the first post for "OFF" or "voltage" doesn't turn up references to an illustrated graphical guide to setting the voltage. Also too bad there aren't charts in the first post that give you suggested voltages (and expected current draws) for given frequencies like 250MHz and 150MHz.

The answer to just almost every question ever asked in this thread is "read the first post".

If you don't feel like reading the first post, or any of the rest in this thread, try this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=frequency+settings+gekkoscience+2Pac. The first option is usually the best.
