  1. Before building, make sure you are on the right channel with "nix-channel --list". I wanted 20.03 but was on unstable, so I had to run "nix-channel --add" followed by "nix-channel --update".

I don't think this step is needed, as the channel is specified in the nix expression here

It's also worth noting that you can use nixos-install to install the system to the SD or eMMC once on the PBP. I had good luck with this method in my setup. This also allows you a chance to create your own partition layout and tweak the /etc/nixos/configuration.nix for the first generation. For example, I use ZFS following the technique in on my PBP eMMC, with good results.

These steps look great! Perhaps these should be added to the repo?
