I only have a Pi 2, but I'll give it a try when I get a moment. Sounds promising!

I was investigating this bug that Morgan reported on Einstein:


The issue was that Mac Debug builds of Einstein would finish booting, and optimized Release builds would not.

The problem also seemed pretty similar to what I had experienced trying to get Einstein to boot on my Raspberry Pi 3, so I dug in and found a fix that seemed to work on the Mac.

I applied the fix to my Raspberry Pi version too and it actually booted!

Photographic proof:



There are still a number of problems with this build, not the least of which is that my screen is the wrong orientation and the window is bigger than the screen. :)

I have precious little time to dedicate into taking this Pi experiment much further, but if you have a Pi 3, programming experience, and need help bringing it up, I should be able to help you get at least that far.
