df -hto find out the device name of the filesystem’s partition (eg.
Unmount that bad boy
sudo diskutil unmount /dev/disk1s1
- Get the raw device name for the disk (eg.
/dev/disk1s1 => /dev/rdisk1– ignore the trailing
Write the image
sudo dd bs=1m if=~/Downloads/2012-09-18-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/rdisk1
SSH into the Raspberry Pi
