Requires Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. If you earlier installed I2P, unfortunately this release fixes some IPC issues which will force you to uninstall your current installation before installing this. 512 MB RAM minimum; 1 GB recommended. The release and dev versions of the I2P APK are not compatible, as they are signed by zzz and meeh respectively. Uninstall one before installing the other.

Alternately, you can fetch the source from monotone or via Git from git.repo.i2p or Github.
Run (tar xjvf i2psource_0.9.41.tar.bz2 ; cd i2p-0.9.41 ; ant pkg) then either run the GUI installer or headless install as above.

Android source is in monotone and on Github. Android builds require the I2P source. See the documentation in the Android source for additional build requirements and instructions.

Post-install work

After running the installer on windows, simply click on the "Start I2P" button which will bring up the router console, which has further instructions.

On Unix-like systems, I2P can be started as a service using the "i2prouter" script, located in the directory you selected for I2P. Changing to that directory in a console and issuing "sh i2prouter status" should tell you the router's status. The arguments "start", "stop" and "restart" control the service. The router console can be accessed at its usual location. For users on OpenSolaris and other systems for which the wrapper (i2psvc) is not supported, start the router with "sh runplain.sh" instead.

When installing for the first time, please remember to adjust your NAT/firewall if you can, bearing in mind the Internet-facing ports I2P uses, described here among other ports. If you have successfully opened your port to inbound TCP, also enable inbound TCP on the configuration page.

Also, please review and adjust the bandwidth settings on the configuration page, as the default settings of 96 KBps down / 40 KBps up are fairly slow.

Updates from earlier releases:

Both automatic and manual upgrades are available for the release.

Automatic updates

If you are running 0.7.5 or later, your router should detect the new release. To upgrade simply click the 'Download Update' button on your router console when it appears.

Since 0.9.23, some releases are signed by str4d, whose signing key has been in the router since 0.9.9. Routers older than 0.9.9 will fail to verify update files signed by str4d, and will need to be manually updated using the process below.

Manual updates

  1. Download that file to your I2P installation directory and rename as i2pupdate.zip. (alternately, you can get the source as above and run "ant updater", then copy the resulting i2pupdate.zip to your I2P installation directory). You do NOT need to unzip that file.
  2. Click "Restart"
  3. Grab a cup of coffee and come back in 11 minutes
