I’m on version 3.3, can I still do the inplace update to upgrade to 3.4 (Jessie) via updating the setup script then running the binary update or do I have to download and install the new image and start from scratch as it’s moved from Wheezy to Jessie?

You have to start fresh, unfortunately.kinopioParticipant01/30/2016 at 21:37Post count: 1
When i start a new installtion with 3.4 and using Win32DiskImager to overwrite my existing 3.3 installtion. Will this work or did i have to start with a new formated Card and all my roms are gone?
Copy them to the SD took hours….
Thanks you for helping me out.
My english is not perfect, but i hope you unterstand my question.

using win32diskimager will overwrite what is on the card. I keep a copy of my romss on the PC to save time, so you just need to backup configs
This is the easiest way to upgrade to jessie with retropie.petrockblogKeymaster01/31/2016 at 00:04Post count: 1828
Wheezy will be unsupported in the future as far as binaries etc.g0nz0ukParticipant01/31/2016 at 08:36Post count: 310
If I upgrade can just copy over my roms and configs folders as my current 3.3 image has been customised quite a bit?trixsterParticipant01/31/2016 at 15:48Post count: 76

No you dont. It’s possible to upgrade from wheezy to Jessie first and then update to retropie 3.4. There’s a thread on the raspberrypi forums which tells you what to do. It’s not a simple procedure but it does work. I know this because I’ve done it on a couple of installs with no issues.

In other words its simpler to start with a fresh image as it has less room for issues.g0nz0ukParticipant01/31/2016 at 20:00Post count: 310
Agree, still OK to copy the configs folder over the top as I’ve spent make hours changing all that on my 3.3 image?
