Additional Details

  • In /boot/cmdline.txt, edit fbcon=font:VGA8x8 to change the font/size. See fbcon for more details
  • Long holding the "End Call" key (~3 seconds) will trigger the key KEY_POWER and safely shutdown the Pi
  • Holding the "End Call" button during power up will put the keyboard into bootloader mode; it will now appear as a USB storage device and you can drag'n'drop the new firmware (*.uf2) into the drive and it will reboot with the new firmware
