Raspberry Pi 2 (1.2) reported as a Pi 3

Hi there,

I have installed DietPi_RPi-ARMv8-Bullseye on my Pi 2 version 1.2, when I

cat /proc/cpuinfo

I get

Hardware        : BCM2835
Revision        : a02082
Serial          : 0000000009c6431c
Model           : Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2

Any ideas?



Hm interesting, what is the output of cat /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/model?

Looks like you have a RPi3B :slight_smile:

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2

Wifi and bluetooth are missing!

They would need to be enabled on dietpi-config first.

It’s definitely a 2

Firmware itself identifies as RPI3. Something we are not influencing. For testing, you could install plain RPI OS and crosscheck.

What is written on the SBC itself? :smiley:
Maybe it’s a 3 with broken BCM43143 chip (wifi and bt)?

The RPi2 1.2 has a Cortex-A53, like the Pi3. The early Pi2 models can only run Armv7, where as the last iteration of the Pi2 can run both Armv7 and Armv8.
