    Very excited for Retropie 3.5, downloaded it, made my SD and upon first boot, after the Retropie splash I get a login prompt to which I cannot log in and nothing else happens.

    This was on the RPi2 image downloaded off this site.

    What could be wrong?

    UPDATE: well I reflashed the SD after formatting it and now it works.

    I guess it must have had some residue from a previous install.

    Pi Model 2 B
    RetroPie Version Used: 3.5
    Built From: (SD Image,
    USB Devices connected: SNES controller & Keyboard
    Controller used:
    Error messages received:
    Guide used: (Mention if you followed a guide) Git hub, SNES PI and just about any other video online

    In trying to launch RetroPie I have downloaded the 3.5 verison via this site and formated the SD card under boot and pi (multi attempts) then written the image using win32. When I plug the SD card into the pi and connect power the process starts and then goes to a blank screen and starts over all while repeating the same sequence of LEDs over and over (I have let run for 10 mins prior) Not sure if it is the software and formating process that I have messed up or if it is the pie itself. Any help or recomendations would be great. Thanks

    Please provide details of PSU – have you tried another PSU ? Have you tried disconnecting devices?

    you could try another SD card. Have you had this RPI working previously with this card ?
