  • DreamBot & Raspberry pi [Tutorial] [Updated 6/3/2022]

    Updated 6/3/2022

    ok dont be using raspberry pis for your botting means, all accounts that logged in to my raspberry pi all got banned for botting regardless whether i botted on them or not



    ok so i was going to just add this in the comments of DreamBot & Linux [Tutorial]  but i found that there is a little more to it then that... idk i might just be a noob but what ever, so here is what i did


    note you need a pi 4 1GB or better otherwise you cant really do this

    if your going for raspberry pi setup then do this:

    VNC in to your pi, if you dont know how to do that there are tuts on YouTube everywhere just look for one
    if your raspberry pi is a fresh download then be sure to update and upgrade the pi 
    Go to the java website HERE and download the latest version of JDK 1.8 32 bit ARM Linux(dreambot does not work with anything higher 
    at the time i am writing this)
    after you download the file move it to where ever you want to move it (i moved it to my /opt file)
    open the command prompt/terminal (whatever you guys want to call it)
    type/copy and paste this in:
    sudo tar -zxvf jdk-8u333-linux-arm32-vfp-hflt.tar.gz (note you will have to replace jdk-8u241-linux-arm32-vfp-hflt with yours)
    sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /opt/jdk1.8.0_333/bin/java 1 (note you may have to replace jdk1.8.0_333 with your version)
    sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /opt/jdk1.8.0_333/bin/javac 1 (note you may have to replace jdk1.8.0_333 with your version)
    cd Desktop
    wget https://dreambot.org/DBLauncher.jar
    java -jar DBLauncher.jar



    added info:

    all of your dreambot info goes to /home/pi/DreamBot

    /pi is the username so if you changed it look where ever you changed it at


    if you already downloaded java for what ever reason but you cant get dreambot to work AND you did my method above please use sudo apt remove jdk*

    then try it, if it still fails redo my method above... if it does not work please ask i might be able to find out whats wrong



    More Added info:

    you can create a desktop app and you dont even need to use terminal for this

    note if you changed the path to some of this you will need to adjust to it

    First create a new file, call it Dreambot.desktop

    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=Dreambot Cliet
    Comment=Run the Dreambot Client
    GenericName=Old School Runescape
    Exec=java -jar /home/pi/Desktop/DBLauncher.jar


    save it


    again hope this helps any of you guys, and i hope you have a grate day


    have any questions or if i did something dumb please tell me, i have re read this tut to make sure it works and i attempted it on my own pis 3 times so far so i think i did ok on this, again please if you have any questions tell me i will try my best to help


    this guide still works, however dreambot client runs... chopper then i remembered it.

    Thanks for posting, managed to follow it and get Java installed but having trouble launching - I can open the launcher but when I hit the launch client button, the whole thing closes and the client doesn't open.  I've found the client.jar file and can open that, but as far as I can see, that won't take any proxies into account?
