I hear you: it’s disheartening when you can’t get something to work and don’t know why. I don’t have a 2Gb Pi4 to try, but I’ve just flashed my 4Gb with the deploy button, and it worked OK. I can access the
.local site no problems.
If you still have the energy/patience to keep trying, you push the button and try again. By using the DWB button you will have a balena application with full control and SSH access, so we can look into what isn’t working:
Let me know if you want to have another go!
