Al Bashir Mohammed al Faqih, 47, of Hall Green, Birmingham, admitting possessing documents on how to make explosives and set up a terror cell.
He was arrested in March 2006 after a police raid on his home.
Al Faqih saw the material as a manifesto for resistance against Libya, Birmingham Crown Court was told.
The Metropolitan Police said al Faqih, a Libyan national, was a former member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, who wished to replace his country's government with a fundamentalist Islamic state.
In addition to bomb-making instructions on a CD-Rom, search teams also found books, documents and audio cassettes which could be construed as "jihadi" or radical, prosecutors said.
The court heard that al Faqih admitted handwriting a document on how to set up a terror cell.
He pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing a document or record containing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.
