If you just want to use the stock LiveODM ISO without making changes, simply flash
opendronemap.iso with your favorite program (see Flashing the ISO), plug the USB onto your computer, reboot and you're done! If you want to customize the ISO, instead follow these additional steps:
You are in the chroot environment now. Make your modifications (add programs, update ODM software, change settings, etc.). When you are done:
exit. This will leave the chroot environment.
Then wait. When it's done, the
opendronemap.iso file will be ready to be flashed.
Flashing the ISO
You can use one of many programs to flash the ISO onto a USB drive.
|Etcher||Easy to use, no persistence options|
|Unetbootin||Persistence up to 4GB on FAT32 file systems|
The root password is
opendronemap. We recommend you change both passwords if you install LiveODM on a machine.
