You will find here the documentation to install Jeedom on a raspberry PI 3 without microSD card.

The PI3 offers the possibility to boot directly on a USB device and thus free yourself from the microSD card sometimes generating problems (corruption).

** The installation procedure is strictly identical to that on a microSD card, but it will make sure to own a firmware to day.**

For this, open an SSH connection. (if you do not know how, watch the installation on microSD: [Here] ( )

    vcgencmd otp_dump grep 17:

You must get back:

    17: 3020000a

If so, your PI3 is correctly configured to boot on USB. If he can not find anything, he will normally start on a map microSD.

If the return is different, you should simply make a change day.

    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install rpi-update


    sudo rpi-update

Then restart the PI3

    sudo reboot


To avoid power problems, opt for a mSATA SSD drive low consumption.


You can now install Jeedom by following exactly the same procedure with an SD card. [Here] (

Possible adjustments

The following remarks must be taken into account:


The following changes are the result of problems encountered by users. You must adapt them to your case. The support Jeedom does not intervene for problems related to your configuration.

  • If you have swap problems, you need to change it.

    • Increase its size:

      • Change the size of the swap by opening this file:

<! - ->

    sudo nano / etc / dphys-swapfile

  • Find the right parameter:

<! - ->


  • Change the value of CONF \ _SWAPSIZE to 1024, for example, and then restart:

<! - ->

    sudo reboot

  • Change the call value to the swap.

By default, the system calls the swap when there is less than 40% of Ram.

  • Open the file to change this setting:

<! - ->

    sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf

  • Add this line, to ask the Pi3 to use the swap only when 10% of available memory remains (100 MB of Ram available):

<! - ->

    vm.swappiness = 10

  • Then restart:

<! - ->

    sudo reboot

  • ** Disable bluetooth built-in as incompatible with the card GPIO **

    • Open the file concerned:

<! - ->

    sudo nano /boot/config.txt

  • add the line:

<! - ->

    dtoverlay = ft3-disable-bt

  • Make a clean stop

<! - ->

    sudo halt

  • Unplug reconnect (no sudo reboot!).
