Creating SD Card for Linux and OS X users

I haven't tried, but you can try! I have a quick guide for you and please tell me if you made it.

  1. Go to SDK Tools Only and download one for your system.
  2. Unzip it, then find and extract a file named mksdcard from \tools\ to elsewhere.
  3. Then type in terminal: mksdcard 2048M sd.raw (confirmed on Windows, but same goes for Linux / OS X? More command information)

Did it created 2GB? Can Dolphin read it? Thank you for testing. Lucario (talk) 18:21, 25 June 2015 (CEST)

Tested on Hackintosh. Linux and real Mac users can try too and inform us if it works for you. Lucario (talk) 19:54, 26 June 2015 (CEST)

  • I was thrown off by the discussion around the Windows bat file. Since we don't describe it's use here we may want to avoid bringing it up.
  • "Drag and drop" per this article such may be broken in Vista (curse you Vista), not clear if we should address that.
  • "Type 2048M for 2GB, or if desired, instead it with different size like 512M (512MB), 1024M (1GB), etc." is grammatically incorrect.
