Hi dion, I followed all the steps in the guide, but it doesn’t work for me.

Step 1. Download the bash scripts
wget -O
chmod +x

Step 2. Install libcamera (optional)

./ -p libcamera

Step 3. Install libcamera-apps (optional)

./ -p libcamera_apps

Step 4. Install Camera Drivers

./ -p imx708_b0311_kernel_driver

Please reboot your Pi when you finish the installation.
sudo reboot

Hi @hector33334
Weird. At this stage, what is the output of the command demsg | grep imx708?

Hi Dion ,I get this from the command

Hi @hector33334
Could you please post the hardware connection here? Both Raspberry Pi’s end and the camera’s end.
There has been an internet error on the forum recently. If you can not post pictures here, it would be appreciated if you can put the pictures in the google drive or something else.


I think the connection is correct, I tried with another camera and it works
