I'm not sure why you'd want to downgrade to 4.6 is you already have a 4.7 system (even if on Stretch) ? If the upgrade that broke your install is from the Raspbian updates, then I don't see why the RetroPie version would make a difference.
The reasons are complex, as the upgrade to 4.7 both introduced and removed some bug symptoms I was trying to debug on something else I am working on, and others report on RPi3 B+ stretch and RetroPie 4.6. And now I’m back to v4.4 from backup on the same SD card. I’d like to get back to the v4.6 state everything was in... ;-)
I don’t know for certain if the OS upgrade that broke other things came from “apt-get -y dist-upgrade” in the RetroPie upgrade script, or if I ran an upgrade my self.
Anyways, I guess I have to accept my losses, and let this be yet another life lesson on taking an image backup before making bigger changes. Think I got a little carried away in debugging mode... ;-)
This is not guaranteed to work, since some of the emulators have been updated and - as a consequence - some of the scripts in RetroPie have been updated to support it.
Ok now I think I understand better. The complete v4.6 “state” was lost with the removal of the binaries, and is not maintained with information about commit history for external and other source files to compile from the 4.6 install script?
I guess I will use this opportunity to upgrade to buster and RetroPie 4.7 on this RPi3 B+.
This day would’ve come eventually, anyways, and it worked like a charm on my RPi4.
@mitu Hey mitu! Thanks for the suggestions. I figured it out after - I simply tried plugging it into a TV instead of my monitor, and no issues - I can see everything just fine. I think I had the wrong resolution settings perhaps, or maybe it was something to do with the high refresh rate. Regardless, thanks!
@mitu ahhhhh, I was waiting on the auto copy, it's formatted as ntfs, is that an issue?
You'll have to decide what format you have on the disc - is it ntfs or ext4 ?
Please use the documentation and follow the instructions - you have to choose one of the methods described there and take into account what filesystem you have.
I've just upgraded to a Pi 4 and performed a fresh install of the latest Pi 4 install file (md5: 9154d998cba5219ddf23de46d8845f6c). I know this is still a beta, but I've experienced a couple of quite big issues. Is it the build or something I'm doing?
WiFi search initially found about 8 of my SSID name (for some reason). I couldn't connect to any, but now it can't find any SSIDs at all
Retropie has crashed on a few occasions (with 'Retropie has crashed' message)
Can't change resolution from 4k to 1080p because I can't get into the resolution menu - it just stays at the same menu level
Have I somehow got the wrong image or copied it to the SD card incorrectly?
I had similar issues
WiFi - I created the file pre setup so didn't have this, however did notice a lot of repeats in Bluetooth when setting up my sixaxis for PS3.
Didn't get crashing
Raspi-config resolution... I couldn't get into this either although I did get a workaround which helped.
