The Raspberry Pi Foundation has deployed a new CDN-based image distribution system. As a result of this, this site is no longer being updated.


Soft-float Debian “wheezy”

This image is identical to the Raspbian “wheezy” image, but uses the slower soft-float ABI. It is only intended for use with software such as the Oracle JVM which does not yet support the hard-float ABI used by Raspbian.

Debian “wheezy” public beta

Alex has produced a new reference image based on the upcoming Debian “wheezy” release. This incorporates Dom's latest firmware, and numerous kernel patches for performance and stability. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be running a public beta program to identify major bugs, and in particular regressions relative to the existing Debian “squeeze” image.

Although this is a beta release, you will almost definitely find it a worthwhile upgrade. Please give it a try, and report issues here.

Debian “squeeze”

If you're just starting out, this is the image we recommend you use. It's a reference root filesystem from Gray and Dom, containing LXDE, Midori, development tools and example source code for multimedia functions.

Additional notes

(Debian “wheezy” public beta)

Thanks to everyone on the forums who tested an earlier version of this release, and in particular to lb for investigating SD card performance issues and contributing patches.


  • It will fit on a 2GB SD card, but 4GB will leave you with a more comfortable amount of room; we now include a tool to make it easy to resize the filesystem to use the full SD card.
  • Future firmware updates will be delivered via apt-get upgrade.
  • The first boot is expected to be slower than subsequent boots.
