Follow this guide and you can get your Tooloop Box up and running in about 30 minutes.

Install the base system

Connect to the internet

During the installation process you will need to download packages from the internet. Please make sure that your box is conected via Ethernet cable and receives an IP address over DHCP.
  1. Download Ubuntu Server 22.04 LTS
  2. Make a bootable USB drive.
  3. Now boot from your USB drive. You probably will have to set this up in you BIOS.
  4. When asked for a user name during installation, name the user tooloop
  5. Also install the SSH server.

Set it up Tooloop OS

Once you have Ubuntu installed, we can turn it into a media server:

  1. SSH into your machine
    ssh tooloop@<IP_ADDRESS>
  2. Get the Tooloop OS installer from GitHub
    git clone
  3. Run the install script
     cd Tooloop-OS
     sudo ./

After some minutes the system will automatically reboot into your new and shiny Tooloop OS.
If you're curious what the installer does, check the install script.

Yay, you're done!

Enjoy the first steps on your new Tooloop Box.
