How to get the PiTFT screen to work for your Raspberry Pi

The Adafruit PiTFT screen is a handy touchscreen that plugs directly into your Raspberry Pi.  With a case that holds the screen, and a wireless keyboard, you can turn the Raspberry Pi into a tiny touchscreen computer!

We wanted to make it as easy as Pi to get started 🙂  The easiest way is to just use SD card with Linux and the screen drivers pre-configured. Plug in the card, and it just runs. Like a laptop.

So, we made a downloadable image file that you can copy onto your own SD card. Or, skip the download and get an SD card with the files pre-installed.

Step 1: Get an SD card that has 4GB or more of memory (note: all old files on this card will be erased)

Step 2: Download the SD card image file

Step 3: Install the image file on your SD card.

Step 4: Remove the SD card and place it in your Raspberry Pi with PiTFT screen

Now you’re ready to go!
