Creating an SD Card Image

  1. Get an SD Card
  2. Download the latest Rasbian Image
  3. Run the following commands from mac
sudo diskutil list
sudo diskutil unmountdisk /dev/disk#
sudo dcfldd if=raspbian.img of=/dev/rdisk# bs=4M statusinterval=4

This will end up being 704 blocks. Takes about 5 minutes.

Long Term Deployment

Raspberry Pi SD cards have a tendency to become corrupted. Especially during unexpected device reboots. One solution to this issue is a read-only filesystem.
