Manual Installation of OpenELEC for Raspberry Pi on SD card
# === Manual Installation of OpenELEC for Raspberry Pi on SD card ===
#
# Adapted from create_sdcard of OpenELEC-RPi.arm-3.0.3.
# Run in OpenELEC-RPi.arm-3.0.3/.
#
# === IMPORTANT ===
#
# These instructions assume your SD card is at /dev/sdb; replace
# as appropriate.
# This will wipe any data off your chosen drive.
# Please read the instructions and use very carefully.
#
# You can either run the commands in this script manually, or choose
# to edit it as appropriate, and then run it.
#
# The original create_sdcard script remounted the loopback device with
# offset and sizelimit to get at PART1 -- I'm not sure why -- it seems
# to work fine without.
#
# --
set -e # for running as script
IMAGE=
DISK=/dev/sdb # change as appropriate !!!
PART1="$DISK"1
PART2="$DISK"2
# To create an image instead of installing to SD card, use:
#
# IMAGE=openelec.img
# IMAGESIZE=910
# DISK=/dev/loop0
# PART1="$DISK"p1
# PART2="$DISK"p2
# --
# skip this if manually running commands and not creating an image
