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!
