Internet-in-a-Box (IIAB) 8.1 pre-releases are thoroughly tested, and can be installed from this page! Please read our DRAFT IIAB 8.1 Release Notes.

To install IIAB 8.1 onto Raspberry Pi OS, Ubuntu 22.04+, Linux Mint 21+ or Debian 11+, simply run this 1-line installer:

curl iiab.io/install.txt | bash

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).

Internet-in-a-Box (IIAB) 6.4 Release Notes...will later appear here:

   https://github.com/iiab/iiab/wiki/IIAB-6.4-Release-Notes

To install IIAB 6.4 PRE-RELEASE onto (either) Raspbian Stretch on RPi3:

   curl download.iiab.io/6.4/rpi/load.txt | sudo bash

This takes about 1.5 hours, if you have a fast Internet connection.
An far faster 1-line installer is below, if you want fewer server apps:

   curl download.iiab.io/6.4/rpi/load-min.txt | sudo bash

Conversely a much larger (but far slower) installation is possible, if
you want to experiment with a full suite of servers apps:

   curl download.iiab.io/6.4/rpi/load-lite.txt | sudo bash

In all cases, an Ethernet (live Internet) cable installed into the back
of your Raspberry Pi 3 is *VERY* strongly recommended during installation!
