I have a Pirate Audio working on a RPi 0W. I was also able to run Mopidy succesfully with up to date Raspberry OS Buster. So the connector soldering on the Pi is good.
For my purposes, I need to use it as framebuffer device. Therefore I installed the adafruit software for this device, as described in this Tutorial,
Unfortunately after installation, the system hangs during the reboot and I can’t get it working as expected. So my question is, how it is possible to get it working? I mean the ST7789 display implemented on your pirate audio is the same as the one on the adafruit webpage. Can Iconfigure something different on the adafruit software to cooperate with your device?
