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 and following instructions here.
