- Download the image
- Extract the image
- From the terminal run df -h
- Connect the SD card reader with the SD card inside
- Run df -h again and look for the new device that wasn’t listed last time. Record the device name of the filesystem’s partition, for example, /dev/disk1s1
- Unmount the partition so that you will be allowed to overwrite the disk
sudo diskutil unmount /dev/disk1s1
- Using the device name of the partition work out the raw device name for the entire disk, by omitting the final “s1” and replacing “disk” with “rdisk”.
Exemple: /dev/disk1s1 -> /dev/rdisk1
- In the terminal write the image to the card with this command, using the raw disk device name from above
sudo dd bs=1m if=~/Downloads/YourImageFolder/YourImage.img of=/dev/rdisk1
- If the above command report an error(dd: bs: illegal numeric value), please change bs=1M to bs=1m
- After the dd command finishes, eject the card
sudo diskutil eject /dev/rdisk1
- Insert it in your device to boot from and have fun!
