I already have a Raspberry Pi 2 with Retropie working and have set everything as I wanted. I now want to buy a Raspberry Pi 3 and would like to use the same micro sd so I don’t have to setup Retropie completely new. I would like to keep my settings, the metadata and so on.
I expect that it’s impossible to just put my old micro sd into the Pi 3 and it just works, isn’t it? I think I have to convert anything.
I’m not very skilled with linux, so I hope you can help me finding a solution.
I have done this with V3.5. Updated the retro-pie script, then did an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade (or dist-upgrade, don’t remember which). After those finished, I pulled the SD card from the 2 and put it in the 3. Worked like a charm…
