Seen in the /boot/config.txt this one line for the display I have.

Put my other SD card in were I was trying to set up Max2Play with this display and never got it working.

Put that line in the /boot/config.txt file and rebooted. At lest this time the display did not stay wight it turn black but nothing on it.

So I looked up that line and came to adafruit web page.

Just had to type in 4 commands they showed like this:

curl -SLs https://apt.adafruit.com/add-pin | sudo bash
apt-get install raspberrypi-bootloader
apt-get install adafruit-pitft-helper
adafruit-pitft-helper -t 28r

Rebooted and now it works with this adafruit PiTFT 320×240 2.8″ Resistive touch screen. http://adafru.it/2298 that’s the display I have. I thought it was the same they 2.8 one they had here. But I was wrong.
