I have been trying to use the Pi3 image from this thread on my Pi3b+ and a Roland UM-One cable. After writing this image to a sd card and booting it up it just hangs at a grey desktop screen after logging in with username "pi" and password "raspberry". Am I supposed to do anything to the image before first booting into it? Am I using the correct credentials?
I'm assuming you are referring to the link in the first post. I would also assume it should work fine on a Pi3b+, unless there is some important difference in the firmware you have on your pi and the one the image was written for. I think that could possibly make a difference.
You would need confirmation from gdjacobs on the firmware revision, and then you would have to check your own hardware. Then you would need to figure out a way to make them agree, which might be a PITA.
I would say that your best course of action (path of least resistance) is probably just start from scratch and do it yourself. It's not actually that big of a lift if you follow the directions.
Before you start, I would install the OS and follow current best recommendations from the RPF on updating your firmware to be current.
I also found it useful to compare Jacobs instructions with this copycat guide over on the retropie forum, and read the comments down below. https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/12549/tut … lation-on-rpi-3
