Atomic Pi


Here you will find resources for the Atomic Pi single board computer. I quite like the Atomic Pi board, but was disappointed by the OS options and figured that the setup could be difficult for beginners that don't have a lot of knowledge about computers, so I made some more! I also host mirrors of all officially supported OSs. I also plan to add more images there in the future. All OSs are optimized and ready to use (drivers installed and OS set up, etc).

ATTENTION!

Recently some people have been attempting to release mirrors and/or third party copies of my images which have been modified to have additional software that tracks you among other things installed. These images are made by me but modified by someone else without my consent and can potentially damage your Atomic Pi or steal your information due to their unknown contents.

I highly suggest you always check the md5 hash of all downloaded files with this tool to ensure they match the md5 hash listed on this page! If your md5 does not match, immediately discard the file and re-download the original version from this page!

This page is the ONLY plage I will ever release my images on, so do not be fooled by others.

Please do NOT redistribute, hotlink, mirror, clone, or modify any of my images with the intent to redistribute. Do not directly link files from this page on your site, link this page instead.

All md5 values are of the exact file you download and not the file(s) inside the archive.


Downloads


All images come with all drivers installed and the OS optimized for use on Atomic Pi


All default passwords are "atomicpi"


Any OS's with "[DLI]" prefix are identical mirrors of the original DLI images, almost all of these contain issues of some kind. I make patched versions of them which fix the issues they may have. Once I release the fixed versions, I replace the original DLI image with the fixed version.

Any DLI original images that are not listed in the downloads below can still be found in the link at the bottom.


If downloads are slow, try using a multi-threaded download manager such as NDM or IDM.

Installation


Prerequisites

  • 4GB (or larger) USB drive (this will be referred to as USB 1)
  • 32GB (or larger) USB drive/SD card (this will be referred to as USB 2)
  • Rufus Utility
  • Lubuntu LiveISO
  • OS System Image
  • USB Hub
  • USB Keyboard and Mouse
  • Computer with Windows XP or newer

  • Your 4GB USB drive will be formatted! Backup any data on it before proceeding.

    Download the OS System Image you want, Lubuntu LiveISO, and Rufus Utility to your PC from Downloads section on the left


    Step 1

    Extract the IMG file from your downloaded OS System Image and copy this to USB 2


    Step 2

    Open Rufus Utility


    Step 3

    In the "Device" box, select USB 1.


    Step 4

    Click the "Select" button and select the lubuntu-19.04-desktop-amd64.iso file you downloaded. (Lubuntu LiveISO)


    Step 5

    Select option "GPT" in the "Partition type" selection box.


    Step 6

    Click "Start" button at the bottom of the window. Select "Yes" and/or "Ok" for any other messages you get.


    Once the green progress bar at the bottom says "READY", unplug USB 1 and USB 2 from your PC and insert them into your Atomic Pi along with a keyboard and mouse. (A USB hub may be required)

    Step 7

    Turn on your Atomic Pi by plugging it into power, then immediately press the F7 key until you see a blue and white list, this may require multiple tries.


    Step 8

    Select USB 1 and press enter.


    Step 9

    The Atomic Pi should now boot to a screen with multiple options listed, select "Start Lubuntu".


    Step 10

    After boot completes, open a terminal from the menu and enter "lsblk" (without quotes) then press enter. You should get a result with an option /dev/mmcblk0 with a capacity of around 14gb. If you do not get that result, seek support from the Atomic Pi Discord.


    Step 11

    Open a file manager from the menu and click on your USB storage device, then close the file manager.


    Step 12

    Return to the terminal and run command "sudo dd if={location of image file} of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=50M status=progress" where {location of image file} is the path to your system image file on USB 2.

    The path to USB 2 will start with "/media/lubuntu/"


    Step 13

    Once flashing is finished, unplug your Atomic Pi and remove USB 1 and USB 2.


    Step 14

    Done! Plug in your Atomic Pi, it will start the newly installed operating system.
