Pi-Star 4.1.2 / 20200526 fixes the Nextion display problems. Recommendation is to install latest fresh Pi-Star image and then reinstall the Nextion display.

Hello,
I just upgraded to the latest version of Pi-Star and it was surprisingly problematic at the end.
Pi-Star absolutely refused to appear after flashing the upgrade onto the SD Card.
I have seen others mention this issue. Finally, I scanned for the IP Address of my Zumspot
and entered that into the search bar in Chrome and that coaxed Pi-Star out of hibernation.
I can recommend Etcher for Flashing the SD Card--that was a positive.
Despite the small hiccup, I am a big fan of Pi-Star.

FWIW, I use the IP address to open Pi-Star no matter I'm on Windows or Android phone or tablet and addressing either the hotspot in the house or the second hotspot in the car. So much easier...

There is a Pi-Star 4.1.2 / 20200528 now available. Use the sudo pistar-update command in the terminal window to pick up both the significant changes to the Buster OS and the Pi-Star cross mode updates.
