The ARMv8 image should work just the same way as the ARMv6 and ARMv7 images :?. You did enable WiFi in dietpi.txt + set SSID/WPA key in dietpi-wifi.txt?

Didn't need to, I connected a USB to LAN adapter.
The problem lies with the dtb file that is missing in the image (as per the link in my previous post), once I did that, all worked.

Thanks very much for the tip regarding the dtb file. I had the exact same issue with my headless rpi zero 2 w (connect via wifi) and now it is up and running on the 64 bit dietpi image.

issue with missing dtb file is already reported to RPi devs https://github.com/raspberrypi/Raspberr ... issues/189

Looks it's as expected at the moment.

The file could be download already https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... zero-2.dtb

So it appears that the Pi Zero 2 W is now available.
When can we expect a release that supports this particular (and slightly different) hardware configuration?

Need the same answer, Anyone?

Hey,

did anyone of you tried bluetooth on the zero 2 w ? I tried with no success.
Can you check if its just me? Just updated to 7.8.1, but also no success on that.

Has there been a very new release to the kernel? My temperatures have dropped from close to 70C to about 45C.

DietPi themselves is just a set of bash scripts. We don't do any kernel development. This is done by the base OS. In your case a Raspberry OS. Means kernel is developed by RPI devs.

Walked in the same "trap". May be a hint on the download page would be nice ;)
Edit: Download and copy bcm2710-rpi-zero-2.dtb has NOT worked! Only copy and rename the bcm2710-rpi-3-b.dtb file worked for me!
