DV4mini image supporting RPi3B+

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, let’s celebrate the latest iteration of the K2DLS DV4mini image for the Raspberry Pi 2, 3, and 3+.  Thanks to the folks on the Facebook DV4mini support group for pointing out that the November release did not contain code to boot on the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

This is a fresh build, based upon the latest Raspbian Stretch.  ssh and RealVNC are ready to go and it works nicely with the official 7″ touchscreen.  The DV4mini console and the Brandmeister XTG Dialer start up automagically.

Default user: pi
Default password: raspberry (please change on first use!)

You will find the new image here.

  1. Hola, desde Argentina. Te consultó cómo cambiar las memorias de los reflectores BM XTG Memories?

    Gracias y saludos 73.

    1. Hello:

      The instructions for changing memories are found in the file “/usr/local/share/bmxtg/README”.

  3. Hi, is there any chance on running DV4mini AMBE-version with full functionality on its audio capabilities on a Raspi environment? 73s, LU4CN.

  4. Hello,
    i installed the Image for Raspi 3b+ tonight. Software runs without problem, but it cannot find my DV4mini connected at USB Port, only scanning..

    With “dmesg” i can see the DV4mini is attached to /dev/ttyACM0

    But the Software cannot find my Stick.. Firmware 1.77 is installed on DV4mini, and it works with the German DV4mini Autostart Image from A23-Wertheim (Germany).

    Any ideas ?

    1. Usually folks try toggling between local mode and network mode (export settings) when this occurs. Give that a try.


    1. What is wrong is the the administrators of the USA master servers decided to disable reflectors on their servers. This includes TG 4999, which is required for extended routing to work.

      The workaround is to select a master outside of the USA.

  5. Hi Dan,

    this image works out of the box on my 3+. Just great and gives me a lot of fun with my old DV4mini.
    Thanks for putting this together,
