HELP
I am running PiStar 4.1.0-RC7 on a RPI 3B and have added the 3.5 K series screen connected  by USB/TTL adapter via USB port on RPi, with Mitch's latest nextion TFT file. All seems to be good on the screen except CPU temps.
Using the instructions from Mitch's UPDATING PI-STAR WITH NEXTION SCREEN: STEP 1, the github loads fine and the Update works fine, all is well except no CPU temps.
STEP 2 is executed with the ./IND.sh option 3 then select #2, all loads fine then this is where the problems start:
The HOME screen now is always waiting for data... and is always inactive except the only box works is the LINKS button.
So... once again, format SD card and start over, done this 3 times with 2 different SD cards..... same results.
Any help would be appreciated !
Should I go to the full new Pi-Star_RPi_V4.1.0_26-Mar-2020.zip??

There appears to be a fault with this Step 2 script......

Remove this script and the instructions from the forum. It doesn't work. Plain and simple.

I could give a more detailed explanation about what doesn't work and why, but I burned 3 hours fighting with it.

It's much easier to just install Mitch's display TFT file and install the packages manually. Far more consistent and reliable.

The script is a nice idea, but if it's going to be posted and not maintained, it should be removed.

If your talking about the Nextion installer scripts they work just fine. I use them probably 20 times a week. You must have somethingt else going on. And can you be more specific than sayng they dont work. If yopu are tryng to get mitches screen to work there are other things you need to do besides the scripts.
