Home / General Embedded / OMAP3 SD Booting

Since the instructions to format an SD card for booting with beagle/zoom2/other omap boards seems to be so complex I decided to write a script that was nice and simple to accomplish the same task.

Here is my tested and working script.

To run this script you will require to run it as root. On Ubuntu or other linux with sudo setup run the script as

sudo sh /dev/sdX

replacing sdX with the base device name of your SD card device.

If your running a distribution without sudo setup then become root then run the script as

su –
sh /dev/sdX
