I managed to install the farmbot latest edition farmbot-rpi-3.0.8 on a micro SD card using Etcher and the image was burnt succesfully. I wanted to test the installation through the raspberry Pi 3 so I plugged it directly to its micro USB port into a USB 2.1A charger. The board lights up and has a solid red LED on but the WIFI network that is supposed to show up in order to set up the OS configuration is not present.
Was wondering if I need to connect the whole Arduino / buck converter etc for the RPi3 to have the WIFI responsive or should a 2.1A 5V direct power suffice (and in that case something else is wrong such as the RPi3 board or the software)? Thanx!
