Creating a bootable Micro SD card with Mac OS X from image
Flash UDOO’s Operating System with Mac OS X
Note: May not work with OSX 10.9 Mavericks
- Go to https://www.udoo.org/downloads/
- Choose the right image for your board (Quad/Dual or NEO), just click on it and it will start download immediately
- Once download has finished, you’ll have a zip file
- You can open it with StuffIt Expander or Zipeg, just unzip it and you’ll have an .img file ready to be copied
- Open a terminal window and type
then leave it alone, we’ll need this later on
- Insert your SD Card
- Initialize your SD Card with Disk Utility, selecting “Erase” from the “Erase” tab
please note: every data on Micro SD card will be lost!
- Go back to the terminal and type again
- Now you should see your SD Card, take note of the name (e.g. /dev/disk3s1 )
- Unmount your SD Card using the following command:
sudo diskutil unmount /dev/disk3s1
(or the name you obtained above)
- Start copying your Image file to the SD Card.
The SD Name will be rdisk[n], same as above but without s1 in the end (e.g. /dev/disk3s1 -> /dev/rdisk3)
Please double check this step, wrong operations may result in a wiped hard disk!
sudo dd bs=1m if=[img_file_path] of=/dev/[sd_name]
(You can also drag&drop the .img file on the terminal instead writing the full path)
- Wait a long time for the process to finish
- Unmount the SD Card with
sudo diskutil eject /dev/rdisk3
or how your card is named
- Done! Insert your newly created MicroSD Card in your UDOO and power it up!
