    Current kernel is:

    #### KERNEL ####
    Linux PiServer 4.4.20-v7+ #908 SMP Wed Sep 7 14:44:27 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux

    Update using Max2Play Raspberry Pi settings page fails:

    Kernel Update started
    Installation started - This Messages refreshes every 3 seconds to show current installation status. When finished this message disappears.

    Any ideas? Or should I just not bother to update?

    Hi TJH,

    Please try updating the Max2Play system first. Then, try updating the Kernel again.

    I did update Max2Play first and also the non-kernel update but the kernel update still fails with the invalid hash message and the kernel stays at 4.4.20 😞

    Hi TJH,

    What image did you start with? If you did not configure a lot, you could burn a fresh 2.44 image which should have Kernel 4.4.41-v7+ from the start.

    Lots of configs of course! Squeezebox, Spotify, NAS, etc etc.

    Can I back up all the settings at once then restore them after a clean reinstall?

    Did a clean install of the latest Max2Play image and all now updates OK.

    3 RPis, 3 installs = a whole day reconfiguring (Server Pi2 with HiFiberry Dac+ phone, Zero player with HiFiberry Digi, Pi3 with screen as controller, plus Squezebox and SB Radio). A way of preserving and passing on things like player/server name, fixed IP address, WIFi login, Squeezebox login and plugins details, Spotify login etc etc would save a lot of time. Is there any way Max2Play could ask about these during installation and load them up? (As if you haven’t enough to do already!)

    Thanks for a great system keeping home streaming alive and affordable (ie for those of us not in the Sonos league).

    Hi TJH,

    Sorry about the late response. Your previous reply must have gotten lost during my brief vacation.

    Currently we mainly recommend making a back-up file with the simple image burner premium plugin for Max2Play. We originally built it to quickly burn new SD cards with fresh images, but we also included a button to save your current install of Max2Play as an .img. This way, you can either save it to a USB storage, a SambaShare, your existing SD or just burn a fresh one with a back-up.

    There are also a few buttons to save or restore settings for things like the Squeezebox Server, but backing up is your safest bet for now 😉
