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.

omap3-mkcard.sh

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 omap3-mkcard.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 omap3-mkcard.sh /dev/sdX
