Getting Wheezy Beta running on the Raspberry Pi from OS X

July 11, 2012 by The Man

Download the beta. Pop in your card

sudo dd bs=1m if=wheezy.img of=/dev/disk1

where wheezy.img is the unzipped image file – I renamed because I am lazy and there is less typing involved 🙂

/dev/disk1 is the name of the SD card without the s1.

It does take AGES to write.

You can also update the firmware by grabbing it from here https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware and following instructions here.
