    I am also having a problem getting Raspberry 2, piTFT 3.5 to work with RetroPie 3(latest image)

    I have not done an update and still can not get it running. I am using the RetroPir image and ran followed instructions many times (ran easy install)

    Has anyone with the above config get the LCD to work?

    BTW: after hours of trying to get PiTFT 3.5″ LCD to work with RetroPie 3(latest version) – no go

    I think I read that there are issues getting PiTFT to work with RetroPie 3 – it changes Kernel and Bootloader
    IS THIS A TRUE STATEMENT?

    I went back to using older version of RetroPie

    is what a true statement ? not sure what you are saying changes kernel and bootloader. retropie is based on raspbian and uses the raspbian firmware/kernel.

    You have not detailed what doesn’t work – you don’t get any display output or it breaks at some point or ? I need details to help.

    Thanks for the reply. Understand

    “:BTW: after hours of trying to get PiTFT 3.5″ LCD to work with RetroPie 3(latest version) – no go”

    Meaning, the screen stays white. I have followed many directions to the T..

    But this tells me it’s broke and not to bother with RetroPie 3(latest)
    ” IMPORTANT: recent updates to the Pi kernel & bootloader are incompatible with this guide — the hardware/software combination presented here DOES NOT WORK at the moment. We are working on a fix and will remove this message once things are getting along again. “

    you can always rollback the firmware/kernel with rpi-update
