I've just installed RASPBIAN 3.18 and next packages:

wget http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/b/bluez/bluez_4.99- 2_armhf.deb
wget http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/libc/libcap- ng/libcap-ng0_0.6.6-2_armhf.deb
wget http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/r/radvd/radvd_1.8.5- 1_armhf.deb
wget -O kernel.zip http://www.nordicsemi.com/eng/nordic/download_resource/41602/5/28710770
unzip kernel.zip
sudo dpkg -i radvd_1.8.5-1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i libcap-ng0_0.6.6-2_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i bluez_4.99-2_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-image-3.17.4-release+_1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.17.4-release+_1_armhf.deb
sudo nano /boot/config.txt

Add the following line:

kernel=vmlinuz-3.17.4-release+ to config.txt

save and exit

sudo reboot

and when I restart I got an screen more or less as the print screen attached. Any idea ?

  • Hello and welcome! Since my Pi also shows this colorful image in the beginning of the boot process I have to assume that in your case it's not moving on beyond that? – Ghanima Apr 24 '15 at 19:30
  • Hi ! true that's it :-) ACT led is flashing but nothing happens – Baldrick Apr 24 '15 at 19:38
  • Since you are installing a different kernel than what is supplied in Raspbian - can you comment on why you are switching? You might want to insert the SD card into a linux computer, open up /boot/config.txt, comment out the kernel line and see if everything boots up fine then .... – Phil B. Apr 24 '15 at 19:43
  • I am following this tutorial: IoT_SDK_step_by_step.pdf devzone.nordicsemi.com/question/24554/… – Baldrick Apr 24 '15 at 19:46
  • I presume you got through this by now but for posterity, there is some documentation regarding the flashing LED: elinux.org/… – goldilocks Jun 6 '15 at 12:21
