    I had my raspberry pi working in console mode. (Touchscreen still broke as per previous post)

    After upgrading the firmware, the display no longer has output.

    Here was the last command I ran before rebooting. I have tested this 3 times now. New build for Raspbian. Get it working via commands on this site. Upgrade firmware, no screen output.

    Here were the last commands I ran:

    pi@rasp-temp ~ $ sudo rpi-update

    REBOOTED. No screen output.

    Any ideas on how to get the screen back?

    You need re-install the drivers.
    Use this command

    sudo REPO_URI=https://github.com/notro/rpi-firmware rpi-update

    That did fix it. I guess I will have to save this command for any future updates that are required for the firmware.

    Thanks for your help with this. Now I will focus back on the touchscreen issue.
