As elementary does not seem to provide md5 hashes of its .isos there is no obvious way to verify that the downloaded file is actually intact / the correct one. What are the md5 hashes of the Luna and Freya release .isos?

Are there other ways to verify the integrity of the images?

    The torrent links will automatically verify their contents, but for direct downloads and a corresponding bug report, see my answer.

  • As some people still have problems with Freya it'd be great if the hashes of Luna were available here as well.

  • Thanks. Little typo, can't edit it because SE is stupid.

I'd just like to point out that SHA256 hashes now seem to be available on the installation instructions page.

  • My answer does detail that on the first line.

You can find the MD5 on http://sourceforge.net/projects/elementaryos/files/stable/ , might be an idea for the team to make these a bit more easy to find on elementary.io. (It's the "i" button on the right there next to the downloaded graph icon)
