    Hi,

    I’m on version 3.3, can I still do the inplace update to upgrade to 3.4 (Jessie) via updating the setup script then running the binary update or do I have to download and install the new image and start from scratch as it’s moved from Wheezy to Jessie?

    Thanks

    You have to start fresh, unfortunately.

    Another question:

    When i start a new installtion with 3.4 and using Win32DiskImager to overwrite my existing 3.3 installtion. Will this work or did i have to start with a new formated Card and all my roms are gone?

    Copy them to the SD took hours….

    Thanks you for helping me out.

    My english is not perfect, but i hope you unterstand my question.

    using win32diskimager will overwrite what is on the card. I keep a copy of my romss on the PC to save time, so you just need to backup configs

    This is the easiest way to upgrade to jessie with retropie.

    Is it worth the upgrade/hassle?

    Wheezy will be unsupported in the future as far as binaries etc.

    If I upgrade can just copy over my roms and configs folders as my current 3.3 image has been customised quite a bit?

    No you dont. It’s possible to upgrade from wheezy to Jessie first and then update to retropie 3.4. There’s a thread on the raspberrypi forums which tells you what to do. It’s not a simple procedure but it does work. I know this because I’ve done it on a couple of installs with no issues.

    Check this thread:

    In other words its simpler to start with a fresh image as it has less room for issues.

    Agree, still OK to copy the configs folder over the top as I’ve spent make hours changing all that on my 3.3 image?
