Hardware upgrade C1+ to C4

Post by mike42 »


is there a way to upgrade the hardware without starting from scratch?
I currently have a C1+ with a possible hardware defect.
A new one will cost me 50€. Additional 20€ will get me a better C4.
My C1+ is running Ubuntu Minimal and has a media library installed in which I put a lot of work (and time).
So if I could just pop the SD card into the C4, that would be awesome.

Best regards,

You have to start from scratch since the bootloader and Linux kernel are not compatible each other.

That would be a wise advice, however, there is a difficult and convoluted way to upgrade from c1 to c4.
Have a look at this article, and if it doesn't seem too difficult I can give you some pointers...
