Early bird on Raspberry Pi 4... RetroPie doesn't boot!
I work for a shop that today received the 4B model :)
I tried a microSD from my working 3B+ setup and it doesn't boot.
I guess it needs a new kernel... or is there a way to fix that via some update?
(I haven't updated since last month)
@matchaman no one on the team has a 4b yet :)
yeah i think your only option at the moment would be to use the latest raspbian image from raspberry pi, and then doing https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Manual-Installation/
but even then, i think no emulators will build from source yet on it, and the binaries might not work.
Yup, I just tried Raspbian to make sure the unit is fine. We're lucky we've already had an HDMI adaptor, I believe it would be better if they used one regular HDMI and one micro next to it. It now reminds me of a modern phone with headphone jack adaptor :p
Another thing I noticed is that I can't get composite output at all. I'm afraid it's not available anymore and the jack works only for analogue audio. I guess it's time to say goodbye to 240p...

If this is true my 3B+ will stay on the CRT for eternity and will run everything up to PS1.
Its not the end of the world, but a little sad indeed.

@matchaman @frezeen @sirhenrythe5th composite video output should be there for the Pi4:
They recently updated
raspi-configto fix video options, so maybe update it and re-enable composite.
