256 MB (Model B rev 1)
512 MB (Model B rev 2, B+)

Re: Chumby os on Raspberry pi?

The "chumby os" is just Linux, which already works on Raspberry Pi (my favorite version's Raspbian ). To run Chumby widgets, you'd need some form of Flash. The version that the devices use cannot be distributed, and Adobe doesn't release Flash for anything other than x86 platforms. Open-source alternatives like Gnash and Lightspark don't work too well, and are poorly optimized.

Looking for the source code?
The chumby device firmware incorporates a substantial amount of software licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2 (GPL2), GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1 (LGPL2) and other licenses.

The source code for these software packages can be found here: ( This includes both third-party software and software generated by Chumby Industries.

The pi should be able to boot from the linux builds here!
