Create a bootable microSD from disk image

  • Download the zipped disk image from arietta.img.zip
  • Uncompress its contents to obtain arietta.img file
  • Insert a microSD and write arietta.img on it using:
    • On Windows: Win32 Disk Imager
    • On Linux: sudo dd if=arietta.img of=/dev/sdX where sdX is the microSD device (more info...)
    • On Mac: sudo dd if=arietta.img of=/dev/diskN where diskN is the microSD device (more info..)

Notes

  • For Arietta G25 with 256 MB of RAM rename boot256.bin in boot.bin in the first partition mounted on /boot
  • The image contains just the first two partitions (boot and rootfs) and uses just the first 1.0 GB. To add more space create a third partition to add in /etc/fstab or enlarge the rootfs partition.
