since 2013 I've always refreshed SD cards using dd and a fresh RPi image.
Today, I've done this with three micro SD cards, and each time, after taking 55 seconds to transfer 1.3gb of Jessie Light Raspbian, I boot back into the exact same install that was on the Pi prior to applying the image. I've done this on a mac and on a linux box.
I can't modify the partitions on the Mac or the linux box either, so something weird is up.
Code: Select all
sudo dd if=/Users/me/Downloads/2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie-lite.img of=/dev/rdisk4 bs=1m
what happened to my brain?
