Download pre-built Yocto image:

Issue one of these commands depends on a created image format:

  • for sdcard.xz image issue:
xz -dc tmp/deploy/images/${MACHINE}/${IMAGE}-${MACHINE}.sdcard.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdg
  • for sdcard.bz2 image issue:
bzip2 -dc tmp/deploy/images/${MACHINE}/${IMAGE}-${MACHINE}.sdcard.bz2 | sudo dd of=/dev/sdg
  • for sdcard image issue:
sudo dd if=tmp/deploy/images/${MACHINE}/${IMAGE}-${MACHINE}.sdcard of=/dev/sdg
