i’ve got the exact same problem with the pitft 2.8 capacitive.
did everything correct according to the guide on the adafruit site but the screen stays white,
hdmi says screen size not suported as it is 320×240.

tried to doe the source instalation of retropie but even that didnt work.

/etc/init.d/asplashscreen

#! /bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          asplashscreen

### END INIT INFO

do_start () {

    /usr/local/bin/fbcp &
    line=$(head -n 1 /etc/splashscreen.list)
    isMovie=$(echo $line | grep -o "*.mpg")
    if [ -z "$isMovie" ]; then
      /usr/bin/fbi -T 2 -once -t 20 -noverbose -a -l /etc/splashscreen.list &
    else
      mplayer $line &
    fi
    exit 0
}

case "$1" in
  start|"")
    do_start
    ;;

    echo "Error: argument '$1' not supported" >&2
    exit 3
    ;;
  stop)
    # No-op
    ;;

    exit 0
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: asplashscreen [start|stop]" >&2
    exit 3
