I want to use Raspbian Wheezy. Is there a place that I can still download it?

I had a backup of Wheezy, but when I tried to install it on my Raspberry Pi, I got an error message saying:

Unable to download distribution list.

  • Why do you want to use Wheezy over Jessie? I highly recommend upgrading to Jessie. – Jacobm001 May 23 '16 at 15:43

If you absolutely have to do this, it's still available here: /raspbian/images/raspbian-2015-05-07

  • Maybe make a fresh image? It also might not work with Raspberry Pis released after May last year - like the Zero and 3B. – scruss May 25 '16 at 0:36

You can find old images at: http://vx2-downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/images/

For example: http://vx2-downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/images/raspbian-2015-05-07/2015-05-05-raspbian-wheezy.zip

  • A little more detail would be great, do you think your answer solves the problem if the links break? – Darth Vader May 23 '16 at 17:01
