Raspberry Pi T3 Alliance Customized SD Card Image
Having the ability to re-write the SD card of the Raspberry Pi is very handy if something goes wrong and you cannot easily find a way to fix it. Using this download along with a way to write to the SD card you can start completely fresh with your Raspberry Pi computer. – Keep in mind that any custom programs/data on the SD card will be lost –
To copy the image onto a micro SD card please use the software Etcher from etcher.io it works with any Windows, macOS, or Linux computer – But cannot run on the Raspberry Pi itself.
Materials you will need:
- SD card Reader/Writer (if your laptop does not include one) to write the image, we recommend this Trascend USB 3.0 Reader / Writer TS-RDF5K.
- Micro SD Card to write image to – you may re-write existing cards over and over, but if you want to have spares on hand, we recommend this Sandisk 16GB card SDSQUAR-016G-GN6MA.
— ONLY APPLICABLE FOR 7″ SCREEN MODELS —
If you are using the older 7″ screen model you have to modify /boot/config.txt file after you have flashed the SD card – on windows 10 you can mount the boot partition as it is FAT I believe, and use notepad++ or other text editor to add in the resolution settings to the config file.

This is not necessary if you are using the newer 10″ screen model.
