How to burn system image to internal microSD card without extracting it?

You'll need an USB mass storage device or CF card. 

  1. Download the desired system image, unpack it and copy the *.bin file to the USB mass storage device or CF card.
    This example uses 'image.bin' as the filename.
  2. If you use a CF-card, insert the medium now.
    If you use an USB mass storage, do not connect it.
  3. Start the Alekto system.
  4. Enter BIOS -> "System console"
  5. If you use an USB mass storage, connect it now.
    1. Wait for the system to detect it, will take approx. 10 seconds.
    2. Verify it is detected as as /dev/sdb.
  6. Mount the media with image to /mnt:
    1. mount /dev/hda1 /mnt (for CF-Card)
    2. mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt (for USB mass storage)
  7. dd  if=/mnt/image.bin of=/dev/sda bs=4096
  8. umount /mnt
  9. Reboot
