Skyview is part of dump1090-fa, so you can have it without using their data feeder, piaware

In case you want some additions, i'd recommend some stuff i tinker with: (Works with most dump1090 installations) (dump1090-fa only)

It's great you wrote up your process, i'm sure it's helpful for some people.

I believe you can put a file wpa_supplicant.conf in the boot partition from windows as well on any Raspbian to configure WiFi.
But all that would need to be in a neat guide for the pi24 image, otherwise it's unlikely to be found by the people looking for it.
