The getting-started.md file says to dd spi-installer.img to an sd card, and to boot from it. I watched the videos, and all that looks pretty easy. However, there is no file spi-installer.img in the git download, so I assume that I need to build it. I find no makefiles or instruction on how to do this, just .nix files.

I am delighted you asked the question: I have exactly the same question/issue but decided if I had to ask it would mean I was an idiot (a segway from if I have to ask I can't afford it Big Grin )
