3a+ with ControlBlock 2?

  • Can anybody confirm if the ControlBlock 2 is compatible with the new 3a+ Pi?

    I've had a little look around, but I can't find anything about it. I know that there is currently a little bit of tweaking required to get the RetroPie image working.

    I'm just about to upgrade my system to the 3+ generation, and deciding between the A or B model.

    The ControlBlock should work fine.
    However, my RPi 3A+ is still on its way, so that I can do the tests only in a few days.

  • Thanks for getting back to me, and thanks for making fantastic little bits of hardware, I hope it works out with the 3A+

    I ordered the B model in the end, I figured that I might regret not having those extra USB ports down the line, and the larger footprint means I'll be forced into making a tidier build :)
