Raspberry Pi


Step 1: Prepare the SD card

Download the Raspbian OS image from http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/
then uncompressed the image downloaded and then extracted the img file to my Micro SD card using Win32DiskImager

 Tip: Enable SSH
  If you want to SSH into the Pi without hooking it up to a display,
  you create a empty file in the boot folder on the SD card name ssh without any extention
  this will allow you ssh into the Pi provide the Pi has access to your network

 Tip: Enable WiFi (if your Pi has WiFi)
  Create a file called wpa_supplicant.conf
  This configuration file that will allow you to pre-configure the WiFi credentials.
  The Pi will on boot copy these settings and use this as the default configuration file.

  In this file, place the following content:
  country="your country code"
  ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

   ssid="your WIFI_SSID"
   psk="your WIFI_PASSWORD"

  Make shure the WiFi credentials are correct.

When that was done i put the Micro SD card into my Pi and conected the other parts to the Pi and lastly the powerSupply
Then boot it up

Step 2: 1st boot - Initial configuration

Step 3: 2nd Boot - Update

Make sure that your raspian is up to date.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Update your Pi's firmware
sudo apt-get install rpi-update
sudo rpi-update

when finished you need to reboot
sudo shutdown -r now
