Step by step installation of Raspbian on a Raspberry Pi

First of all, download Raspbian. Check the website for the latest version. In my case I used wget to download the version:

wget http://212.187.212.42/bt/29aa44acfa3a7a78dd438e9e91dd3142247817fd/data/2014-09-09- wheezy-raspbian.zip

Get the checksum to check if the download was correct:

sha1sum 2014-09-09-wheezy-raspbian.zip

Unpack the zip archive:

unzip 2014-09-09-wheezy-raspbian.zip

Check all block devices with the following command, before you put the SD card into your PC:

lsblk

Unmount the partition:

sudo umount /dev/

Copy the img file to the SD card – Be careful not to overwrite your HDD.

sudo dd if=2014-09-09-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/ bs=4k

You’re finished. Put the SD card into the Pi and turn it on.

    Hello Kai,
    looks really simple 🙂
    I used an Board from odroid -> XU3
    It was a bit harder but it has a big powerful quad core cpu.

    If the RasPi gets a bit better hardware i will get one too.
    Hope you have with yours 🙂

    Martin
