Hi, per users request Ive created this invitation to support the proposal
for permanent addition of DASH to ROKOS flavors OS for IoT devices (Pi 2, Pi 3, PINE64+, etc)

Already gave answer to all questions from the proposal page, please give it a read and feel free to post a new question with your inquiries.

Proposal: https://www.dashwhale.org/p/ROKOS-permanent-add

ROKOS is a ready to download burn and use Operating System with integrated cryptocurrencies out of the box.

This proposal looks to claim for DASH a position to be integrated Permanently to the
upcoming ROKOS flavors releases. (one time payment - permanent addition/updates)

ROKOS leads the Cryptocurrency + IoT integration environment since June 2015.

ROKOS is a new Operating System released for the different IoT devices, which
includes integrated Cryptocurrencies fullnodes / fully functional clients and nodes out of the box.

It had and continues to have great coverage over different cryptocurrency / tech / fintech networks,
Recently was featured over TechCrunch for the CES2016 Las Vegas, among others.

TechCrunch: http://techcrunch.com/2016/01/04/the-rokos-core-os-turns-your-raspberry-pi-into-a-bitcoin-node/

At the moment ROKOS just released its V5 flavors OS for Raspberry Pi 2 devices, and the new version for Pi 3 should be released in the coming weeks.

Next immediate ROKOS event on line: CoinfestUK (Sponsor)

Hello, OKtoshi

DISCLAIMER: That is NOT an "official" Dash point of view in any way, that's only my own personal one. And I must also note that I'm ok with going through tons of steps to setup/compile/etc whatever it is. Most of people don't, that's ok too if they can trust the developer who provide them some solution.

With that being said, here is a quote of myself on Slack few days ago:
We have binaries for pi2 ready https://www.dash.org/downloads/ but I think it’s daemon only now, not the qt one. Not sure if there are some troubles of compiling a qt version or is it because there was no need for it before. I guess @flare could gave a better answer.

Anyway, about the idea to get into the multi-coin pi2 fullnode project - might be a good idea in terms of PR or smth. However I’m not sure if I personally would ever trust someone to pre-setup a wallet for me using some customized OS image tbh…. that would be ok for remote masternode maybe which have no control over my coins but for an actual wallet… meh, I wouldn’t go that way. I would rather setup/burn clean OS and compile a wallet myself (or at least download it from official site). So I’m not really interested in getting there.
To be even more clear: I mean, it's totally fine if someone would want this on his Pi, I'm just too paranoid sometimes :rolleyes:
Hmm.. I actually run my qt wallet on a Mac..:eek: Not sure if I can trust Apple but I have no choice, I like Mac :D
So, since we have no dash-qt for Pi atm, getting it done in ROKOS would be the only option for now I guess.
The only question is - is there a demand for this?

PS. OKtoshi maybe you could also help us to fix https://github.com/dashpay/dash/blob/v0.12.1.x/contrib/gitian-descriptors/gitian-rpi2.yml so that we could compile and provide Qt downloadables on dash.org too? And then people would be able to compare file hashes to verify that at least wallet binaries are ok ;)
That would be really nice imo :)

PPS. I found these proofs qute usefull (quote from https://www.dashwhale.org/p/ROKOS-permanent-add):
I am the Lead Developer for ROKOS.

Proofs:
http://rokos.space official website on bottom reads by me (OKtoshi)
Githubs: website: https://github.com/okcashpro/rokos.space
ROKOS: https://github.com/okcashpro/ROKOS (needs update on v5 release)
Official thread for support: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1084908.0
Sent a tweet that links directly to the proposal from the official twitter account as well at: https://twitter.com/BitcoinFullnode/status/708755830812889088
Though it would be good idea to post them here too :)

This is an interesting proposal. On top of the usefulness of offering Dash users a Pi OS with user friendly built-in native Dash support, there's also an interesting marketing side to this as well.

Purpose of this proposal is double-fold - there's a direct utility side to it and also a marketing side.

OKtoshi described it pretty well on Dashwhale. This should help spread awareness about Dash in the Pi/IoT enthusiast community.

I think it would be really cool to have an out of the box PI3 that could operate my masternode.

Just an FYI, without derailing the thread discussion.
On March 20th at 3:00 pm Pacific Standard Time the Dash Round Table will be interviewing OKtoshi about the proposal he has made.

The event page can be found here

Or you can always listen live at the website

The Pi version is already on DASH.org
but
I only use it for my Pi-MN COLD-side
I have not tried to use it with GUI - not sure if flare compiled it for GUI or not - hummmmm



OKtoshi
You'll get my VOTE of YEA on this - after MUCH research
I'll VOTE on Wed, after I get my 2nd Pi-MN back up and running - on holiday right now :p

Of course, transparency is a base value for decentralized and opensource empowerment systems.

Anyone can download ROKOS and audit/review all included software at anytime.

ROKOS v6 "Magic Flavors" Screen Shots




"ROKOS" Initial Setup

1.- Download and Burn the ROKOS Image to a micro SD Card like you would with any other Pi Distro.
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)

STEPS:

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.

"Empower yourself and build your own Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies Fullnode Guide"

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:
Windows: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/eula_windows/SDFormatterv4.zip
Mac: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/eula_mac/SDFormatter_4.00B.pkg
(or find it yourself at: https://sdcard.org/downloads)

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: http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/files/latest/download

5. Download ROKOS Core (rokosv6magic.zip) and unzip the ISO file (This is the awesome ROKOS Core "Operating System" that we are going to install on the SD card) from:
Download: http://bit.ly/rokos6magicflavors
(or find it yourself at: http://rokos.space

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.


---Installing ROKOS ---
(The first boot of ROKOS )​

Instructions set updated with v6 Release.

ENJOY THIS AWESOME OPERATING SYSTEM!
