Just an FYI this also works on Raspbian 9 I just performed this on 4 new Raspberry PI model 3’s with Raspbian lite 9 on them I believe the code name is stretch.
Thank you for the information, I’ve quickly reviewed the procedure on Raspbian 9 Stretch and can confirm everything is working fine for me. That said I’m updating the guide.
The last part of your article where you say “and finally” does not have the Raspbian 7/8/9 like you changed earlier. Sorry not trying to call you out just thought you might have overlooked it.
Thanks for the awesome article.
Hello Michael, indeed I overlooked that part. Thank you I really appreciate it.
