@hotshot05 Is there any way I use this for torrents via GUI, incapable of handling commands :(
Yes. You can install Transmission and its GUI. After that you can use the GUI.
You can install Deluge also.

A few commands you have to use to install these programs. After that it's GUI and web UI.

So along with Pi, need 5v/2A charger, HDMI cable, 8 GB micro SD card ?

Any cheap casing link ?

I use the Sony CP AD2 (one version comes with 1.5m cable, another has 0.5m cable)
http://www.sony.co.in/product/cp-ad2

I got it from Ebay.
I have the charger with 1.5m cable. I feel that because of the length of the cable, the output is reduced (high resistivity of cable). So if you are ok with 0.5m cable, I feel that it will work a bit better.

After I reach home, I will give you the link for the case that I use.

The Portronics charger that was suggested by Ranjith Sai comes without a cable (I think). For 2.1A output, you need a good quality cable. Without that the input at the end of the cable drops. Buy it only if you own a good quality cable.


Get the Samsung Class 6 MicroSD cards. The Raspberry Pi store uses this card for its Noobs package. I use the 32GB version of this card. Get it from PayTM.

@hotshot05 I have many charges of mobile phones with me with 5v/2A or 1A, I guess those will work too?

HDMI cable ready, planning to connect to LCD.

Can you guide me to installing transmission right after out of box ?

I got a question, does Pi 2 supports multichannel/DTS passthru using its audio port ? My Receiver is old and does not have any HDMI/video ports, thus I would ideally want the Pi to pass digital audio to my receiver using audio port.
