Recreate SD card 64gb

How can you burn the image using etcher or dd now?
what .img file are you supposed to choose?

Hello beefizz, welcome to the community!

Regarding burning a 64GB microSD card, here are our instructions.

I followed the numbered list points to burn the files on my SD cards, and I have not used Etcher or similar software.

This does not seem to work on a 64gb card as exfat. Am I able to get the .img and just use etcher?

The .img file is compressed and is named rshake_os.xz, which is inside the general file that you have downloaded.

If Etcher does not do the uncompression itself, then you will have to uncompress the .xz file to the .img file before it can be imported to Etcher.

Thanks! For the reply.

Same error here. I will try to use etcher.


out of curiosity, what is the motivating consideration to size the SD card so large? unless the unit will be in a location without internet for a very long time, and when the Shake Pi is not used for non-Shake purposes, sizing the SD card larger than 16Gb really isn’t necessary.


it’s been just because I had this new SD card on hand.
