  1. hey! Great job on the retroflag script for shutting down the pi safely! I did notice that the script will ONLY work in the retroflag NESPI case. If i take the SD card out and put it in another pi, it starts to go through the startup sequence and shut itself down before it even reaches the intro video.

    When I reinsert it into the PI in the NESPI case, it works as you intended it to. Wondering if there is an easy way to disable the script if I wanted to use the SD card in another PI without the mod?

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hm. I don’t think so. It seems like the sensible thing to do would be to use a second sd card. If you clone your existing card, you can put the clone in the retroflag, and then install the non-retroflag script. then you could use that card in a non-retroflag pi

    2. I did the same thing — the same mistake. I happen to have a Linux computer next to me when it happened, though. So I pulled the SD card, installed it into a card reader and then connected the reader to the Linux computer. From there, I was able to find and edit the files installed so they don’t work any longer. (# added comment to the line that calls the python script in the pi_shutdown within /etc/init.d)

      Fixed without re-doing the whole machine. I’ll bet a Linux LiveCD will suffice as well so having a whole Linux machine wouldn’t be needed.
