To install IIAB 8.0 onto Raspberry Pi OS, Ubuntu 20.04+, Linux Mint 20 or Debian 11+, simply run this 1-line installer:
On a Raspberry Pi, WE RECOMMEND YOU INSTALL THE LATEST RASPBERRY PI OS (32-bit OR 64-bit), using their detailed instructions if necessary. WARNING: THE NOOBS OS IS *NOT* SUPPORTED, as its partitioning is very different. To attempt an IIAB install onto a non-supported Linux distribution (AT YOUR OWN RISK) see also the manual/legacy instructions.
An Ethernet cable is highly recommended during installation. This is not only more reliable, but also allows an internal IIAB hotspot to be set up without confusion. WARNING: IF YOU CONNECT YOUR IIAB'S INTERNAL WIFI TO THE INTERNET OVER 5 GHz, YOU'LL PREVENT OLDER LAPTOPS/PHONES/TABLETS (WHICH REQUIRE 2.4 GHz) FROM CONNECTING TO YOUR IIAB'S INTERNAL HOTSPOT. For AP+STA mode, set "wifi_up_down: True" in /etc/iiab/local_vars.yml (example).
Please contact us if you find issues, Thank You! Special Thanks to the countries + communities + volunteers working non-stop to bring about IIAB 8.0 !

To install IIAB 7.0 onto Raspbian Buster, Ubuntu 18.04 or Debian 10, run this 1-line installer: curl d.iiab.io/7.0/install.txt | sudo bash OS TIPS & TRICKS: click the above link (that ends in .txt) for important recommendations on how to PREPARE & SECURE YOUR OS. WARNING: NOOBS IS *NOT* SUPPORTED, as its partitioning is very different. On a Raspberry Pi, you need to INSTALL THE LATEST VERSION OF RASPBIAN. To attempt IIAB 7.0 on another Linux see the full/manual instructions. An Ethernet cable is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED during installation, as this is more reliable than Wi-Fi (and faster too!) If however you must install over Wi-Fi, remember to run "iiab-hotspot-on" after IIAB installation, TO ACTIVATE YOUR RASPBERRY PI's INTERNAL WIFI HOTSPOT (thereby killing Internet connectivity!)
