SD card setup – Raspberry Pi – Mac

If you use a Mac i create a app for you. It’s very simple. Don’t need to use lines in terminal.

RPi-sd card builder v1.2 (new link 2-1-2014) if it ask for a key it is eD9dtFpoKnbZqP1hkvrv43_Pvc9xadMVxRP2K-M8n88

-bugs reported removed
-Now you have to select a .img file. not the .zip like the old version

How the app works?

  1. Run the app.
  2. Select the operating system distributions (.img file).

  1. Nice program. I got the error message “Run Shell Script…” multiple times on the Mac, after being successful the previous day. I realized that I had move the *.img file to a folder that had a space in the pathname (“raspberry pi”). When I removed the space, (“raspberrypi”) the app completed successfully.

  5. As a previous user noted, be sure to remove the space from any folder/path that its located in! After I renamed the folder without spaces and put the app and the img in the same folder, it worked great!

  15. The mac program works great unless you are using an unformatted memory card. Had to format my card to NTFS and once I did that it worked the first time after the format.
