To install IIAB 8.1 onto Raspberry Pi OS, Ubuntu 22.04+, Linux Mint 21+ or Debian 11+, simply run this 1-line installer:
On a Raspberry Pi, WE RECOMMEND YOU INSTALL THE LATEST RASPBERRY PI OS (64-bit is recommended), 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 8.1 !
