In case you have troubles using Torrent, you can download the Gorgona Omega image from these links:
 
 
* [http://zynthian.org/download/zynthian_gorgona_omega_rbpi3_kitv2-2018-04-03.zip Gorgona Omega, Kit v2]
 
 
* [http://zynthian.org/download/zynthian_gorgona_omega_rbpi3_kitv1-2018-04-03.zip Gorgona Omega, Legacy Kit V1]
 
 
Please, try first with torrent and don't use these "direct download" links unless you really need it:
 
 
* Zynthian server have limits and if everybody is trying to download the SD images directly from there, it will get overloaded and forum, wiki and other Zynthian services will be slower.
 
* Torrent should download faster than direct download links because you are downloading from several sources at once.

Official Aruk Buster SD-Images (Buster-based)

The current official Zynthian SD-Image is called Aruk Buster. It's almost the same than the stretch-based one, but updated and buster-based. Currently we have a first Release Candidate (RC-1):

ZynthianOS "Aruk Buster" RC-1 (MD5-sum)

Latest nightly builds are quite stable, so you sould consider using the last one ...

Note:

Aruk Buster SD-Image is pre-configured for official Kit v3.

Official Aruk Stretch SD-Images (Stretch-based)

The former official Zynthian SD-Image is called Aruk. It's based in Raspbian Stretch and built using a the CustomPiOS system (thanks @guysoft!!):

ZynthianOS "Aruk Stretch" RC-3 (MD5-sum)

You shouldn't be using Aruk Stretch without a good reason. We have moved to Buster!!

Note:

Aruk Stretch SD-Image is pre-configured for official Kit v2.

Nightly Build SD-Images

If you really like to be in the cutting edge, try the nightly builds:

ZynthianOS nightly builds

Preparing the SD-card

Current images are 8GB compressed image file compiled for Raspberry Pi 3. These SD card images include all the Zynthian software, properly configured for working with the official kits. Completely ready to use. Plug and play!

After downloading the SD-image, you have to write it to a SD-card. You need a SD card with a minimum size of 16GB, although you can use a bigger one if you want.

Use Etcher (free software works on Mac, Windows or Linux) to write the image onto the SDcard. Or do it manually! There is a really good manual for this at this link.

Note:

RBPi2 is not currently supported by the latest official zynthian SD images, so if you want to use a RBPi2, you may need to build your own SD image.

Build your own image

If you like, you can build your own SD image following these instructions:

Building the SD Image using the Setup Script

Also, you would like to try the new experimental docker-builder (thanks @guysoft!!):
