- <p>Inspired by the <a href="http://wiki.daviddarts.com/PirateBox">PirateBox project</a> by <a href="http://daviddarts.com/">David Darts</a>, LibraryBox is a self-contained digital resource sharing device. LibraryBox utilizes Free, Libre and Open Source software (FLOSS) to create mobile wireless file access networks where users can download digital content. </p>
-<p>
-PirateBox, and thus LibraryBox, is designed to be safe and secure. No logins are required and no user data is logged. The system is purposely not connected to the Internet in order to prevent tracking and preserve user privacy.

-<p>LibraryBox is a fork of <a href="http://wiki.daviddarts.com/PirateBox_DIY_OpenWrt#Tutorial_A:_TP-Link_MR3020">PirateBox for the TP-Link MR 3020</a>, customized to be friendly to Library needs. LibraryBox was conceived and created by Jason Griffey. </p>

+<br />
+<h3>Customizing your PirateBox to be a LibraryBox</h3>
+
+<p>Once you have a working PirateBox, the customizations for LibraryBox are just interface customizations at this point. Further development will result in more and more customizations being baked into the install directly and will likely require the installation of a LibraryBox.ipk rather than the Piratebox.ipk. Once we reach that point these instructions will be depreciated, but in the interim, here’s how you create a LibraryBox.</p>
+
+<p>Once you have a working PirateBox using the instructions here, grab the droopy.py and the piratebox.common files from github, as well as the images/librarybox-logo.png. The PirateBox doesn’t have FTP, but you can SCP files up. SSH in, move the native PirateBox files just in case something goes wrong so that you can roll back to them if necessary:</p>
+<p><code>
+mv /etc/piratebox.common /etc/piratebox.backup <br />
+mv /mnt/ext/usr/bin/droopy /mnt/ext/usr/bin/droopy.backup
+</code></p>
+<p>Rename the droopy.py file to just droopy, as the existing file doesn’t have the python extension...it’s just there to make coding locally a bit easier. </p>
+
+<p>Then, finally, upload the files from your local machine to the PirateBox using SCP, making sure to put them into their respective directories. </p>
+
+<p>At this point, you should be able to power off the MR-3020, wait a second or two, then turn it back on and attach to the wifi point when it comes back online (usually within 1-2 minutes). If the logo still isn’t correct, you can replace /mnt/usb/PirateBox/Shared/piratebox-logo.png with your downloaded Librarybox logo.
+That should be all...at this point, you should have a portable, download-only digital library that can literally go almost anywhere. </p>
+
+<p>Once you have a running LibraryBox, you can power down the MR-3020, unplug the USB drive, plug it into your computer, and throw content into the PirateBox directory...anything you place here will show up alphabetically to be downloaded. If you’d like, you can <a href="magnet:?xt=urn:btih:8792c60257c1959f4bc8cbebb994b326712f4ad4&dn=LibraryBox%20Starter%20Kit.zip">download this bundle of Public Domain works</a> to get started (warning: magnet link, needs compatible torrent app), or head to Project Gutenberg or Feedbooks to build your own. </p>
