1. Confirm that you have a large enough SD card in your Pi-Star, we need at least a 4G card. The base image will work on a 2G card, but for md380tools we need a LOT more space!

2. Confirm that you are running Pi-Star 3.3.9 or newer (you need this version for a patched version of 'raspi-config'

3. Expand your filesystem to fill your card.

 sudo raspi-config

Once this step is complete, your Pi will reboot and expand the disk, this WILL take some time, be patient.

4. Login to your Pi-Star over SSH.

5. Unlock the disk

 rpi-rw

6. Install the supporting tools;

 sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-none-eabi binutils-arm-none-eabi libusb-1.0 libnewlib-arm-none-eabi make curl python-pip

7. Install pyusb to support the USB connection to the radio

 sudo pip install pyusb==1.0.0b1

8. Download the md380tools from GitHub

 git clone https://github.com/travisgoodspeed/md380tools.git
