Can I boot Raspberry Pi 4 B with LibreELEC from USB?

  • Hi,


    I've just tried the USB-SD Creator for the first time and I see an option to write the Pi 4 image to a USB stick.

    If I choose to do that, can I then boot my Pi 4 into LibreELEC from my USB? Are there, perhaps, instructions somewhere on how to do this?


    Thanks,

    No. Unlike the RPi3B+ which can boot from USB, the RPi4B does not support booting from USB (yet).

    You can boot from the SDcard and use USB as a subsequent system and storage drive. There are tutorials for that online.

    Currently there are tests being done with a beta firmware, which supports booting from USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports on the RPi 4B.

    So it is already possible. If you feel adventurous, you can upgrade the firmware on your RPi4 and test it for yourself.

    klojum,


    thanks for your message. So at this moment I am using LE 9.2.1. With the firmware, you meaning the eeeprom bootloader?
