Using SPI on RPi

sudo raspi-config
------to turn the SPI on----------

Problem I have got:
“If the SPI driver was loaded, you should see the device /dev/spidev0.0”
BUT WHAT THE FUCK I DON”T HAVE THAT =.= …

=.= The Rpi-update will take you to the latest AND unstable version of kernal

So the official command should be
sudo apt-get update;
sudo apt-get install –reinstall raspberrypi-bootloader raspberrypi-kernal

To check your firmware:
$ uname -a
$ cat /proc/version

IT SHOULD BE VERY EASY TO turn SPI on, if everything is not right … don’t structgle. try flashing other kernal … since kernal problem is not that easy to handle >>>>> actually is impossible to handle

note:
I have tried to move the missing /dev/spidev0.0 and /dev/spidev0.1 file to that raspberry pi –>>
and hoping it will work fine… and it doesn’t work.

SPI workable kernal: Linux version 4.9.35-v7+
SPI not workable kernal: Linux version 4.14.73-v7+
