Connect your display and board as shown in the picture

Step 2: Initialization

Picture of  Initialization

To use, enter the following line in the console:

sudo modprobe fbtft_device name=adafruit18 gpios=reset:1,dc:0,led:3 speed=16000000 fps=25 rotate=90 busnum=1

Maybe you have to change busnum to zero

Step 3: Using

Enter the command:

dmesg

The last line will be the number of the framebuffer created. Now you can use it.

For example, if the framebuffer number is eight, then this command will display the console on it:

con2fbmap 1 8

Hi,

Did you manage to get it to work? I have a blank white screen too and I thin I tried everything... The display does work, I tested it on raspberry without issues.

Damn it... It turns out that the gpios are not working. I changed them to pgio7,18 and 19 and it works!

Just a small note, I have bought a chinese TFT display with 320x240 resolution containing ili9341 and my modprobe command had to be changed to:

/sbin/modprobe fbtft_device custom name=fb_ili9340 gpios=reset:1,dc:0,led:3 speed=16000000 rotate=90 busnum=1 bgr=1

The custom was necessary and bgr=1 is there because I had wrong colors on my display (red was blue, blue was orange, etc.)
