Pioneer Edition FreedomBox Home Server Kit

Pioneer Edition FreedomBox Home Server Kit

The Pioneer Edition FreedomBox Home Server Kit includes all the hardware needed for launching a FreedomBox home server on an Olimex A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 board. The Pioneer Edition FreedomBox Home Server is the first commercially available version of FreedomBox. This product provides the perfect combination of open source hardware and free and open source software. By purchasing this product, you also support the FreedomBox Foundation's efforts to create and promote its free and open source server software.

The kit includes the A20-OlinuXino-LIME2, a custom metal case with a laser-engraved FreedomBox logo, a high-speed 32GB micro SD card with the FreedomBox software pre-installed, a backup battery, a power adapter, and an Ethernet cable.

Recommendation: This is the hardware recommended for all users who can't build their own FreedomBox by buying the right components, downloading the image and preparing the SD card.

Availability

Hardware Specifications

The kits run entirely on Free Software. They work with Kernel and u-boot from Debian repositories. Even the boot firmware in ROM called BROM is free software (GPLV2+).

Download

The kits come with an SD card pre-loaded with FreedomBox. There is no need to download images. However, if you wish to reset your devices to a pristine state, then you can do so with the the image provided. Follow the instructions on the download page to create a FreedomBox SD card and boot the device. Make sure to download the Pioneer Edition images. These SD card images are meant for use with the on-board SD card slot and won't work when used with a separate SD card reader connected via USB.

An alternative to downloading these images is to install Debian on the device and then install FreedomBox on it.

Build Image

FreedomBox images for this hardware can be built using Freedom Maker.
