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. 2017-11-12 14:39:38| *** Raspberry Pi firmware updater by Hexxeh, enhanced by AndrewS and Dom *** Performing self-update *** Relaunching after update *** Raspberry Pi firmware updater by Hexxeh, enhanced by AndrewS and Dom *** Invalid hash given Finished - Reboot needed!

Any ideas? Or should I just not bother to update?20. November 2017 at 16:51 #32551
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).24. November 2017 at 16:22 #32619
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 😉
