Inactivate wifi and bluetooth on pi zero W

Post by Admin » Fri 25 Aug 2017 10:26

For those who use the pi zero W there is a way to inactivate bluetooth and wifi that can be tried to avoid interferences. According to the following :

https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q ... ing-bootet https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... ays/README)
https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... p?t=186247

So just adding this to config.txt should inactivate wifi and bluetooth :
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt et dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi
Also note that it will save battery to disable them.

Has anyone tried this to see if it solves the problem? I just ordered my kit and didn't see the zero w warning and can't find a provider with in stock zeros here in Germany at the moment, so would be stuck using zero w.

I have a W too. What are the issues we are talking about? Didn't saw the warning when I ordered.

At first it was thought that the W was causing interference with the LCD unit, but I think this has been disproven.

Nonetheless, turning them off will save battery life, so it's not a bad thing to know how to do.
