wget http://raspberrypiwiki.com/download/rpi-2.8-inch-lcd-a/mzdpi-vga-autoinstall-online.sh
chmod +x mzdpi-vga-autoinstall-online.sh
sodu ./mzdpi-vga-autoinstall-online.sh

For New Version

What is the purpose of the NEW 2.8 inch display pins VBAT, AUX (with jumper), PWM and left-side pins ?

1.VBAT and AUX are the ADC inputs of the XPT2046 and can be used to measure voltage. The XPT2046 is a touch control chip.

2.The PWM pin is the control pin of the backlight. The brightness of the PMW signal can be adjusted externally.

3.The left-side pins (on New Version B photo) is no use.
