ROKOS v8 "core" for Raspberry Pi 2, 3 screen shots






"ROKOS" Initial Setup

How to burn the ROKOS .img to the SDcard: http://rokos.space/burn_sdcard.html

Steps for first boot

* Raspberry Pi 2, 3: https://rokos.space/rokos_corepi.html

* Pine64+: https://rokos.space/rokos_core.html

Extra info command to auto-sync the OKCash chain in minutes:

a) Open terminal.
b) type:         ./ok-sync-arm64.sh           (this will download and unzip the latest ok-blockchain snapshot to the okcash datafolder)
c) start your wallet after the process is done and give it some minutes.
d) your OK wallet is ready to be used.


Welcome to the ROKOS Desktop

Final steps / BTC and OK Clients

a) Go to Menu > Blockchain and Click on the Bitcoin Wallet

This will open the Bitcoin wallet with the option to select where we will be saving the BTC chain.

*For BTC the initial sync will 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 Bitcoin wallet to plug HW and mine BTC, Send/Receive Bitcoin,
become a full node and support the Bitcoin 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, Pine64+, Raspberry Pi and IoT Hardware, Debian 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, We 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 chain.

You can start testing and developing new integration with the Bitcoin and OK Tech for your IoT projects.

All ROKOS versions includes the tools to compile any cryptocurrency wallet, I will make some Tutorials on how to do it yourself as requested,
the tutorials will be added to a new "Tutorials" section over the rokos.space website. Thanks for your feedback.

Np, a pleasure, we opened the possibility to communities to request the native addition for the ease of the users, can get more info about it over the "flavors" thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1084908.new#new tell anyone from their devs/communities to contact me and we can set something up, else the Tutorials should get released as soon as I'm done with the new flavors release.

As this thread is for the Core version feedback (dedicated mainly to Bitcoin).

Thanks.

Hi
Tell me please, what is the point the user to keep a running Bitcoin core wallet on this system if it does not receive from this process any income?
At this stage, any pool for Bitcoin network that launched the wallet is already receiving earnings.
When the user holds running your POS wallet he gets from this income. But from a Bitcoin wallet you will not receive any income.
Or you just believe in the noble intentions of some users who have a lot of Bitcoin and trying thus to support the bitcoin network?

There are incentives by itself, heres some ideas for who it might work.

1.- Any User: You can dedicate it to use as a Hardware Bitcoin Wallet increasing the security and protection of your BTC. (connect it to internet to use and then to sync and disconnect to keep it as cold storage when not using it) (lite versions will be released in the future without the need of syncing the chain)

2.- Devs and services: can set up the node to work with any of your applications/services. (less energy consumption and maintenance costs)

3.- IoT Devs: start testing / integrating to IoT applications.

4.- Kids: Introduction to Bitcoin, Test and learn how bitcoin works (Kids version will be released in the future, providing games/design for kids with Bitcoin Info/Tips/fun facts)

5.- Noble users: I have no doubt there's some noble Bitcoin supporters that might get some Pi's to download and support the network, I run one myself for that goal.

6.- Some users/services might even migrate to Pi devices after running tests as it saves energy and resources = saves them money.

7.- Miners (add mining sofware & plug HW) saving energy and resources = money (Miners software will get included in future releases)

etc, In my vision only the imagination is the limit, IoT devices get released with more potential (processors,boards,ram) every few months.
I am already backing a PINE64+ for next ROKOS compatibility release. (sharing in next message)

The only wall that was preventing Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies to grow/integrate to IoT, was the high cost of the provided solutions, which we just broke down with the ROKOS release for and from the community, now everyone can download and test/use/apply/learn/support/develop/etc ,
I feel we are only seen the start of it.

Thanks for your participation and feedback.

tried to run it on my banana pi pro but unfortunately it does not boot -

all I did was burn the v4 image on a new fast 32gb card and install it in the banana pi pro (lemaker) but it doesn't boot -

pretty sure the banana pi has a different / faster chip than the raspberry cousin along with a built in wifi nic

if you spin up a new image, I'll gladly test it - else if there's a step by step install script to take a base lubuntu build that is running on the BpiPro I'll spin through that as well

I have it running on my Raspberry Pi B (not v2) and it is re-indexing the blockchain off a drive that I prepopulated with all the blocks -- it's been 2 days but its about 1/4 of the way through (hopefully it finishes)

either way on the Banana,  great work and kudos to the team!

I'll be watching.

I wrongly had the assumption they ran the same processors, you are correct, looking more into the Banana pi device I can see it has a dual processor, I am using fund from the donations to order one Banana Pi Pro to test and release a native compatibility ROKOS for it so we cover the device. Thanks a lot for your feedback.

(already used funds donated from ROKOS flavors to pay for the ROKOS website and hosting for 5 years and to order and officially support the new upcoming PINE64+) thanks to the supportive communities from ROKOS flavors.

Banana Pi Pro arrived, Will Release ROKOS for Banana pi pro so everyone can have a Bitcoin Full node on them as well.
PINE64+ arrives in March. Cool

You can use dd if on linux, or win32diskimage if you are on windows, here is a link on how to for windows.

I ll make video tutorials with this kind of info to add to the website for the users.

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-images/windows.md

Already made the website open source as well if anyone wants to translate /add info, cooperate or do tutorials later on.

ROKOS OS's interface looks sleek. I've been running Raspbian OS on my Pi2 and was wondering if I could run a Bitcoin Node on it instead of switching to ROKOS. I'd prefer a similar setup like this, as in storing the BTC blockchain on an external Hard drive. I already have an 8GB Class 10 SD card with Rasbpian OS running.

Hi, Raspbian OS is whezzy based, to make use of all the power of your pi 2 you need jessie based, so I would recommend the OS upgrade.
When you start Bitcoin on ROKOS it ask where you want to save the blockchain, so you can select the external device from here.(Use external device for the blockchain is the base recommendation and way to work with ROKOS and Bitcoin [MicroSD cards tend to get corrupted with time and overwrites)

Even so, If you decide to keep your OS, you can compile and integrate Bitcoin to your system,
To do so Follow this instructions: http://raspnode.com/diyBitcoin.html

Thanks everyone for your trust and supporting the Bitcoin Network, more than 838+ downloads already, I work on every detail as If i was the final user and aimed to fill the needs from new bitcoin and crypto users to developers alike, glad you like the work, very motivated to continue and grow the innovation with each new release.
