May 10 2016
ROKOS v6 "Magic Flavors" - DOWNLOAD

Steps for first boot

*Raspberry Pi, zero, 2, 3:

ROKOS accounts.

User: root / Password: raspberry (use for initial configuration and advanced changes)
User: pi / Password: raspberry (main account to use your OS and cryptocurrencies)


1- Login with username: root /Password: raspberry
1.2- Type: dietpi-config
1.3- a) Set your network connection details. b) change the root user account password. and restart.

2- Login with username: root and the password you just set.
2.1- Type: raspi-config
2.3- a) Set your Time Zone/Keyboard/Language. b) Change your pi user password. c) Expand the file system, and restart.

3- Login with your normal user account: user: pi and the password you just set for it.
3.1- Type: "startx" to start the user desktop.
Congratulations! your ROKOS system is ready for use.

Welcome to the ROKOS Desktop

Final steps / BTC and OK Clients

a) Go to Menu > Internet and Click on your favorite Cryptocurrency Wallet

This will open the Cryptocurrency wallet and start sync.
(make sure you change the datadir location on the config file of your cryptocurrency before starting it if you are saving the chain on external devices)

*For some Cryptocurrencies the initial sync might take some days, wallets are fully usable after being fully Synchronized.


b) Always remember to make constant backups of your wallets and save them in USB or external media.

Use your wallets in ROKOS to plug HW and mine, Send/Receive, Stake, Share,
become a full node and support your favorite Cryptocurrency network, develop new applications,
etc, the limit is only in your imagination.

Important Security Notice:
*) Remember to create a backup for your Wallets, you can use the wallets to create them and save in different folders on a USB device.
You should ALWAYS have a backup of your wallet, Raspberry Pi Hardware, Raspbian and ROKOS Software are under development hence not responsible for missuses, electrical or compatibility issues that might cause a loss of information. It is as secure as one's ability to take care for it, same as a computer, so always have a backup of your wallets on an external device.

*) Some people tend to recommend getting a 128Gb MicroSD HC (High speed) , at the same time it does work, I do not recommend this solution, as microSD cards tend to get corrupted by the number of overwrites, to ensure the best functionality and security you should use an external HDD/USB storage device to store the chains.


You can start testing and developing new integration with ROKOS and your favorite cryptocurrencies for your IoT projects.

ROKOS Guide from zero! Full steps for New Users
by SwedishBitMiner

---Prepare the MicroSD/MicroSDHC card---

(I did this on a Windows computer, and I dont know what tool to use for Mac to install the iso file Image burner, for this guide you will have to figure out that yourself, if you use Mac)

1. Download and install SD Formatter 4.0 (This is the tool to format the SD card) from:
(or find it yourself at:

2. Insert the MicroSD/MicroSDHC card into your PC/Mac. (You will probably need an MicroSD to SD adapter for this).

3. Start SD Formatter 4.0 and click the [Option] button. In there you change from "FORMAT TYPE: QUICK" to "FORMAT TYPE: (FULL)Erase", just leave the "FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT" in OFF and click the [OK] button so start the format. When the card is completely formatted click the [Exit] button to close SD Formatter.

4. Download and install Win32 Disk Imager (This is the iso file Image burner) from:
Windows: ... t/download

5. Download ROKOS Core ( and unzip the ISO file (This is the awesome ROKOS Core "Operating System" that we are going to install on the SD card) from:
(or find it yourself at:

6. Start Win32 Disk Imager, press the "little blue folder" and select the "rokos5.img" file that you did extract. Make sure your SD card is selected in the list to the right and press the [Write] button. It will tell you that it can corrupt the SD card, just press [Yes] to continue the installation, when the installation to the SD card is done press the [Exit] button to close Win32 Disk Imager.

7. Now "Safely remove" your SD card from the computer.

8. Put the MicroSD/MicroSDHC card in your Raspberry Pi 2, and make sure you got an USB Keyboard, Monitor (via HDMI), and and Internet cable connected to the Raspberry Pi 2 before you connect the power cable to your Raspberry Pi 2.

Very happy with all the users feedback, already has 160+ downloads, and got published in a lot of different media sites in different languages.

It requires its own space now, so were releasing the New ROKOS website to find the Core OS and future releases.
Thanks for the Support, Happy New YearPi 2016 !
