    Hello, i downloaded the img file and created the SD from it. Works like a charm, but only 56 mb left and it’s a 8GB card.

    I used the command: sudo raspi-config and choose option 1 to extend the fs and rebooted it. Only after the reboot it doesn’t seem to find the root partition anymore 🙁

    PANIC: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(179,2)

    Any tips? 🙂

    Probably related this issue – https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/issues/1141

    If you rewrite the image again, make those editos to /etc/fstab and then resize it should be ok.

    Thats not the solution, I also tried version 3.3.1 now. Still getting the error after extending the partition and a reboot

    Problem with your SD card ? Worth trying another in case it is.
