"Nothing, really. The tentative plan was to support more ARM spins in the future but no work towards that was done yet."

  • Martin Bříza:5/20/2019



Install of IIAB on RPi4

"The Raspberry Pi 4 is the latest upgrade in the Raspberry Pi SBC series. : This one has a Quadcore A72 CPU, up to 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 2x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 ports, double micro-HDMI ports, AC Wifi, Bluetooth 5.0 and Gigabit ethernet."

  • NOTE medium and full install include sugarizer-server (default)
Aug 6 2017
  • Same install on a 32GB sd: using my Rpi3B+.
  • Only difference: used medium install and only downloaded a few items to test

Aug 2 2017
Installed "Raspbian Buster with desktop and recommended software" (1)
2019-07-10-raspbian-buster-full.img (extracted: 6.4 GB)
256 GB SanDisk Ultra micoSDXC A1 card

Install with Etcher:

In microSD reader
Insert card in RPi4 and power up:
  • RPi4 (with 4 GB Memory) booted and changed GPU memory in "Preferences / Raspberry Pi4 Configuration" to [356] from [76]
( 2019-07-10-raspbian-buster-full - allows changing the allocated amount of memory in the RPi4)
(This appears to increase performance)

GPU memory.jpg

  • in add/remove software: install firefox ESR
  • in terminal:
 curl d.iiab.io/install.txt | sudo bash
  • chose maximum iiab install size
  • used middle selection for type of install (single point)
  • Start Ansible install

Photograph terminal screen when it shows: "Internet-In-A Box (IIAB) software install is complete"


Reboot (by hitting [enter] key)
  • Change iiab-admin's password before connecting your server to the Internet.
You can do this within http://box.lan/admin -> Utilities menu — or at the command line, if you type "passwd iiab-admin". 
  • in firefox enter (in command line): with user:iiab-admin and the password you entered above ^
Starts Admin console


  • test setup ^

"Endless OS is built on top of decades of efforts from the free and open-source software community, and we acknowledge a great debt to it. We contribute back to open source projects whenever we can, but not all the software shipped on our computer is open source.
