Re: What is Etcher Software?

I use usbimager.  Much less...sketchy than BalenaEtcher, and no electron to deal with.  I used to use dd, but I kinda like having a pretty gui.  big_smile

Re: What is Etcher Software?

With dd the bs switch can make a big difference for the writing speed

See /sys/block/mmcblk0/device/preferred_erase_size it's probably 4M
