  1. 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.
