    Would they work with the current RoboOS if you could get a micro hdmi adapter and usb-c adapter? Not sure if the pwr being supplied today to the pi is capable of 3A in the R2/C2. Either way would be cool to get the 4GB version and see how it does with dual screens.

    No

    You really need to use Raspbian 'Buster' with the Pi 4 due to architectural changes and RoboOS is not based on that build.

    I already have some on order :)

    The community version of the Robo OS should be easy enough to migrate to 'Buster' ...

    If be curious to try it when ready. I'm going to order one to have on hand. Probably take awhile to even get one delivered. Very nice upgrade this time.

    RoboOS is stuck in the past. Robo3D built it so that they were the only ones who could upgrade it, then they didn't. Hopefully the Community will have something to test before Robo3D pulls the plug completely and closes up shop (this last comment has no basis in fact, just making an assumption).

    I am going to order one too, just not use it in the R2. The R2 will get a 32-bit upgrade instead.

    We can find a place to stage the stuff at worst, but this is a handier place to do it :)
    I still have to push the java version of the LCD menu software to GitHub
