Rpi 4 installation

Hello all,

I just order a New rpi4 with 4go ram.
I want to know if you think the hassio image can work on ?

Installing on top of rasbian should work. There are generic linux install instructions on the Hassio page.

As for the HassOS route, they ordered one and will release a compatible image sometime in the future.


There isn’t a version of Hassio for the Rpi4 yet, but I imagine there will be one released at some point

This method worked for me on the Buster version of Raspbian… Taking my hass.io SD card from the Pi3 and inserting it into the Pi4 didn’t work but as I run it headless and don’t have a HDMI adapter I’m not sure at what point it failed to boot.

I tried installing hass.io on Buster, but the scripts don’t work as Docker isn’t enabled for Buster on the Docker site. I couldn’t also get it working with the Buster version of Docker either.

hey, this worked for you with a rpi4 sorry?

Confirmed, using Buster version of Rasbian. I had issues using Docker methods on Buster, so tried the manual method which worked with no deviation from the instructions.

thanks, would this work too: https://github.com/home-assistant/pi-gen/releases/tag/v1.6
do you know?

Working also for me :smiley:

which way sorry?

Install with Docker. I want try tommorow on raspbian directly.

got the rpi4 up and running now, following the manual instructions - its really quick!!

Probably if you run raspbian and then run hassio on that. I was wondering the same but I haven’t ordered the 4 yet, but I am planning to.

This should work but when you install docker, you’ll need to edit the sources.list to use the stretch version of Docker as the buster version isn’t available yet. After that it should work.

I got hass running, its a pretty simple procedure:

download the most recent .deb files for containerd.io, docker-ce-cli and docker-ce from https://download.docker.com/linux/debian/dists/buster/pool/stable/armhf/
and then install them in that order with `sudo dpkg -i file after that just run this command:

$ docker run --init -d --name="home-assistant" -v /PATH_TO_YOUR_CONFIG:/config -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro --net=host homeassistant/raspberrypi3-homeassistant

I couldn’t get hassio to run unfortunately.

I’m new to both raspberry pi and hassio (and these forums), but I managed to install hassio on my new raspberry pi 4 running raspbian. Posting details in case it helps someone.

Install docker (instructions taken from this thread on docker ) :
$ sudo curl -sL get.docker.com | sed 's/9)/10)/' | sh

Install hassio dependencies (instructions taken from here)
$ sudo apt-get install apparmor-utils apt-transport-https avahi-daemon ca-certificates curl dbus jq network-manager socat software-properties-common

Install hassio (this part I fiddled with until I got something that worked)

  1. Save hassio installer to file: $ curl -sL "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/hassio-installer/master/hassio_install.sh" >> hassio_install.sh
  2. Modify install script. Open up hassio_install.sh in your favorite text editor and change it as follows. Where it says “armv7l”, change that section so it looks like this:

This (https://pastebin.com/fc64mDnm) is what mine looked like after I modified it.

  1. Run install script: $ sudo bash hassio_install.sh

After that, hassio should be available.


thanks for sharing!!

Thank you! this solution is working for now

I had it up and running here, unfortunately I couldn’t get the AEONSTICK s-wave to work, it simply didn’t show up, and I had the modemmanager killed and cleaned out.
So I had to go back to the RPi3b+, but at least I know it’s doable now, just have to get the usb stick to show up as well.
