Installing remix os
#1
Hey y'all. So I purchased a preloaded sd card with Android. It works just fine, but after seeing a friend use remix os, I've decided to switch.

On this wiki page there what look to be a bunch of images I can burn to using dd on linux. Last I had looked we have to use this phoenix tool on windows.

Am I able to use these dd images safely?

Prior to the dd img, you had to use Phoenix... since the dd img that is old information (I think) you can use dd img from gnu+linux safely...

It is indeed old information, dd images provide another option for burning OS images for those that can't/don't want to use the PhoenixCard software.

Thank you both for the information. For anyone looking...

It took about 3 hours to copy over to my 64gb sd card, but I successfully installed it and have remix os running.

I ran this to find the device for the sd card.

Code:
sudo fdisk -l
 It happened to be '/dev/mmcblk0'


Then I ran this...3 hours later it was good to go.

Code:
sudo dd if=/home/fooclueshoedo/Downloads/remix-v2.0-20160415-pine64-64GB.img of=/dev/mmcblk0
