Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is a popular single board computer developed with the intention of promoting teaching of basic computer science in schools. It is a successor to Raspberry Pi 2 Model B with a 64-bit processor and on-board Wi-Fi. A FreedomBox "testing" image is available for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. For using this board as FreedomBox, a USB WiFi device, that does not require non-free firmware, is recommended instead of the on-board Wi-Fi.

Please do not expect any output on a monitor connected via HDMI to this device as it does not display anything beyond the message 'Starting kernel...'. See the ?Quick Start page to access and control your FreedomBox from network.

Recommendation: If you are using a board that uses SD cards, 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.
