I got my rpi 2 yesterday and was wondering if the guide for installing indigo on the original rpi would work?

I just received mine and didn't have time to try yet but I would be very interested if you find an easy/convenient way to do it!
Seems that this is working: http://wiki.ros.org/ROSberryPi/Instal... I'll give it a try in a few weeks

Yes, the guide works. Make sure to install all the patches it mentions. It took a day or do to get a fully working installation.

I have ROS indigo working on the Pi 2B, including rviz. I'm still working on installing Gazebo and PCL.

If there is a suitable place to post it, I'm happy to post the complete OS image to save everyone a lot of time.

Hi,

I need somewhere to post it. If you have a DropBox folder you can share with me then I can put it there.

If someone else has a site that can host a various Gb-sized image then let me know.

@SimonB [ https://transfer.pcloud.com/ ] has free capability of files upto 5GB you can upload it there and some can make the files permanent by moving it to there own account.

@SimonB, I've also got a PI2, if it's not a problem, please share the link to the OS, I would like to play with it in my spare time, but fighting the OS a whole day would drive me crazy:) thanks a lot

I'm very happy to share the image, but I've got nowhere to upload it to. We're talking 7Gb and my web provider blocked the uploads I tried to do. I can do a Dropbox link as a one-off but I can't publish it. The only other thing I can think of is one of those nefarious flittering sites. Any ideas?

@SimonB If you are using 8GB of memory for your Pi, then you can use dd if=/dev/sd[x] of=backup.img bs=1M to make an image this about 4GB in size at least in my case and can upload it to the site i mentioned. But if that's not the case(16GB) it's best that we spend a day building it ourselves.
