Warning: contains a new kernel for the PiTFT, and currently the PiTFT kernel will install if you run an apt-get upgrade. This should not be a problem unless you have a custom kernel installed. We are working on resolving this issue, and you can monitor this GitHub issue for updates.

Manually Adding the Repository

If you would like to manually add the repository to your Raspberry Pi, you can start by adding the repository URL to your /etc/apt/sources.list.

echo "deb jessie main" | sudo tee --append /etc/apt/sources.list

Next, you can add the GPG key for

wget -O - -q | sudo apt-key add -

Finally, you need to download the new package lists from the repos.

sudo apt-get update
