  1. I have tried this image at least 10 times and I cannot get it to work. Used 2 different pi hats, Tried several sd cards / swapped the pi zeros – tested on a working monitor (some images work off of a monitor but not the pinky one) and still just blank screen – I’m at a loss, can somebody assist?

  2. I think I might know the issue but need confirmation – do you HAVE to solder the hat to pi? Someone told me you don’t and some say you do. Mine is not soldered.
