Raspberry Pi 3+ & Ubuntu Mate – WARNING

Having just wasted time trying to get this going, I’ve discovered that the Ubuntu Mate download on the official Raspberry¬†Pi site doesn’t work on the Pi3B+! This has been known about since March but has not been resolved!

The supplied distribution has the wrong bootloader and will give a rainbow display on the Pi, along with a power warning icon and a pulsing power led.

It doesn’t do the Pi any harm, but it’s annoying that they haven’t put a warning on the site to save folks wasting their time!
