balenaEtcher is a free and open-source image burner with support for Windows, OS X and GNU/Linux. It makes USB and SD card image burning as simple and fast as possible. FEATURES Validated Burning - No more writing images on corrupted cards and wondering why your device isn't booting. Hard Drive Friendly - Makes drive selection obvious to avoid wiping your entire hard-drive Beautiful Interface - Who said burning SD cards has to be an eyesore. Open Source - Made with JS, HTML, node.
- Very simple and effective, creates a bootable USB key almost in a single click (very unusual considering everyone is struggling with UNetbootin since many years!)
- I have a 64GB USB key, and UNetbootin kept insisting on creating an odd FAT32 partition that always failed to boot properly. Also, Windows and Mac had trouble identifying and/or reading it. Etcher worked the first time. No confusing setup options, just select the .iso and burn. Simple like it should be!
- Works on more operating systems. Better language support. Truly open source and free.
