Easy Install

The PiTFT requires kernel support and a couple other things to make it a nice stand-alone display. We have a detailed step-by-step setup for hackers who want to tweak, customize or understand the PiTFT setup. If you just want to get going, check out the following for easy-install instructions!

Ready to go Image

If you want to start with a fresh image, we have one for Raspbian - click here to download it and install into a new SD card. Unzip and follow the classic SD card burning tutorials

This image is customized for the RESISTIVE touch 3.5" TFT, also known as PID #2097! Not for PID #1601 or 1983
