NEW GUIDE: Resizing the Raspberry Pi Boot Partition

Adafruit Learning System: Resizing the Raspberry Pi Boot Partition

Though the Raspberry Pi computer is eminently networkable, some projects still just work best by physically moving the SD card to a desktop system to exchange data…but normally only a small section of the card is accessible to Windows and Mac computers. This guide explains one way of making more space available to both the Pi and other systems.

Some examples of projects that work this way include cameras, data loggers and handheld game consoles…anywhere a network connection can’t be assumed. This is the decades-old tradition of “Sneakernet” — once done with floppy disks or tape, but still occasionally relevant in our age of flash memory.

This is actually a pretty quick and simple process once you get the hang of it, the guide might just appear complex as it’s breaking it all down step-by-step. I find this approach preferable to installing third-party software for ext4 filesystem support on Windows or Mac, since the Pi’s boot partition is already usable on most any machine.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
