Let's get started!

Step 1: What You'll Need Before We Start

  1. Lakka Image for Raspberry Pi
  2. 8GB MicroSD Card (Recommend Samsung)
  3. Raspberry Pi 1, 2 or 3
  4. Etcher

NOTES: The Raspberry Pi 3 requires a 2.5A power supply so make sure you have one that is capable. I highly recommend Samsung Micro SD Cards due to a technology called Wear Leveling which greatly increases the life span of the memory card.

Step 2: Download Lakka Image

Go to http://lakka.tv/ to Download the latest Lakka Image available, Click on the "Get" Button, Click on the "Get Lakka" Button, You'll be taken to a page with three options, we'll pick "GNU/Linux", You'll be taken to a list of all the devices Lakka is available for, Click the "Download Lakka" Button

Step 3: Copying the Image

Open up Etcher and Click “Select Image, Select the Lakka Image we just downloaded.

Click on “Select Drive” to select the Drive you want your image to be copied to.

NOTE: Remember to select the correct one, as the process will be messed up if you don’t choose the right one

Click on “Flash” and wait for it to copy the image to your SD Card.

NOTE: After it is done, it’ll automatically unmount the SD Card so you can take it from your Computer to continue the process

Step 4: Booting Into Lakka

Start your Raspberry Pi and wait for it to correctly boot into Lakka

Our Lakka instalation on Raspberry Pi is completed and that’s it for this tutorial. If you’ve installed Lakka on Raspberry Pi, have any suggestions or had problems during the installation, please leave a comment.

<p>One suggestion would be to specify which image to choose for a Pi Zero - Lakka doens't make it obvious.</p>
