Raspberry Pi Model B+
This hardware was supported earlier but is no longer supported. If you downloaded an earlier image and are running FreedomBox on this hardware, you will keep getting software updates. You can stay secure and up-to-date. However, no new images will be provided for this hardware. It is recommended that you migrate to newer, supported hardware using backup and restore.
Raspberry Pi (Model B+) is a popular single board computer developed with the intention of promoting teaching of basic computer science in schools. FreedomBox images are built and tested for it. For using this board as FreedomBox, a USB WiFi device that does not require non-free firmware is recommended.
Note: The Debian architecture used for this device is armel. This means floating point computations are done in software and most operations are slower than what Raspberry Pi is capable of.
Recommendation: When you flash the FreedomBox image onto your SD card, we recommend that you use an SD card with at least 8GB of storage space.
