Manual Installation Instructions
Graphical Unified Installer
Note: Try using the graphical installer first.
Before you download
Please remember it runs best on a Raspberry Pi Model B 2 but also runs on a 512MB Raspberry Pi B or B+. For best results, you should run pre-caching on first boot as detailed in our faq section.
You will need
- A Raspberry Pi computer Model B 512MB or Model B+ 512MM or a Model B2 1024MB, Pi 3 or Pi Zero
- A case to protect your Raspberry Pi (optional)
- A 4GB Class 10 SD (Model B) or MicroSD (Model B+ and B2) card with compatible reader
- A USB micro power supply (should be at least 2A at 5v, if you experience crashing it’s probably because you have a bad power supply or poor quality USB power cable)
- An HDMI cord
You will probably want:
- A remote control
Note: + Download the latest version of RasPlex of either the RPi1 (Raspberry Pi B 512 or B+, Pi Zero) or RPi2 (for Raspberry Pi B2 1024, Pi 3)
Mac OSX / Linux
Grab your desired image (img.gz) file from github, and flash it with the following commands:
1 2 3 gunzip image_name.img.gz blkid # find out what device you want to flash to, /dev/sdX dd if=image_name.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1MB #BE VERY CAREFUL you select the right value for X
1 2 3 4 gunzip image_name.img.gz diskutil list # find out what device you want to flash to, /dev/diskX diskutil unmount /dev/diskX dd if=image_name.img of=/dev/rdiskX bs=1M #The "rdisk" will make it flash much faster
Step 1 - Get the flasher program
To do this, download and run win32 disk imager
Step 2 - Get the image and flash it
Get the latest build like from github releases, unzip it (may need Winrar to handle gzip files), and select the file using win32 disk imager. Insert the SD card, select it, and flash it. A more detailed guide is available here.
To get the latest build manually
Get the latest gzip image (img.gz file) from the Github releases Extract it (may need winrar or something, not sure if windows handles gzip files), and flash it to an SD card using disk imager like here
