Pretty much whatever works for linux works for OS X, although there should be some mention somewhere to
Code: Select all
umount /Volumes/Boot\ imx6qs
before trying
Code: Select all
dd
.

Hi unrob, thank you for your feedback. In our first launch, we decided to support Linux and Windows. However OS images can be written to SD card using UNIX similar commands however there are several recommendations when using OS X that will be post in the wiki soon. Thank you for your time and patience thus far.

Find device name of sd card (/dev/diskX)
======================
diskutil list

Unmount sd card
======================
diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskX

Write image to sd card (using raw format... much quicker)
======================
sudo dd bs=4m if=image_name.img of=/dev/rdiskX
