Success #1

Working 2.2inch TFT on Raspberry Pi (ILI9341)

For those looking for drivers and assistance in getting the 2.2inch cheap TFT displays working on the Raspberry Pi, I found a good set of instructions

I had to make a few more tweaks, including enabling entries in the blacklist file and rmmod'ing the usbtest module

Then I use a script to insmod the entries that don't always startup correctly, and use sudo to run fbcp. I won't be copying the frame buffer for long though, I intend to poke data directly into the fb by opening the file in /dev/fb1 (already tested dumping a binary file into that location and confirming the data arrived on the display)
