eBlockerOS Download – for DIY
With few technical skills, you can quickly assemble your own eBlocker. Simply download eBlockerOS for free, install it on a Single Board Computer (SBC) and surf anonymously immediately. All you need is a Raspberry Pi or Banana Pi with a matching SD card, power supply and a LAN cable.
1. Download eBlockerOS for Free
The eBlockerOS images have been released June 2019 and are the last official images of the former eBlocker GmbH. You can use them free of charge and with all features enabled. Until the release of the source code (planed for February 2020), you need to enter license key for activation, which you find below.
Raspberry Pi 2 and 3 (download) Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (download) Raspberry Pi 4 (planned for end of March 2020) Banana Pi M2 (not M2 Berry!) (download) Banana Pi M2+ (download)
2. Install eBlockerOS on SD Card
The software images must be installed on an SD card (min. 8GB, recommended class 10) with an easy-to-use program like Etcher. Etcher is free to download for Windows, MacOS and Linux.
Note: The image cannot simply be copied to the SD card using Windows Explorer, but must rather be installed.
3. Connect SBC to Network
Then you install the prepared SD card in your SBC. Connect the SBC to a LAN cable and a free LAN port on your Internet router, or to a free Ethernet port on your switch. Let’s go: Turn on your SBC – and you’re protected!
Wait at least 5 minutes, until eBlockerOS is powered up and self-configured.
Make sure you’re using a separate power supply with at least 10 watts or 2A (15 watts / 3A for Raspberry Pi 4). Most standard USB ports on computers or routers do not have enough power and can cause sporadic errors.
4. Network Configuration
Visit http://setup.eblocker.com. If everything works, the eBlocker icon automatically appears in the upper right corner of the screen. This indicates that eBlockerOS is active and protecting you. Clicking on the icon opens the eBlockerOS Controlbar which allows you to further configure and access your dashboad. You can also find your personal eBlocker dashboard at http://eblocker.box, as soon as the eBlocker is active.
5. Enter License Key
Use the following license key to activate your eBlocker for free and permanently including all features:

You will receive free daily updates for your eBlocker, as long as sufficient donations for the operation and maintenance are made. Please note that only free filters are available initially. We can only provide the full range of eBlocker services if sufficient donations can be collected for licensing all commercial filters.
