I have just took in an Aleph, problem is the seller had omitted to include a SD card (though there is an SD card case holder, should is come with one?) and I am finding it a bit difficult making a SD card for first time use. I cannot seem to work out the documentation just yet wrt latest and or most stable code and so on, what format the SD card should be in (FAT I assume) as the website seems to be between worlds documentation-wise. Can someone please point me in the right direction for how to make a card so I can start to learn this box? I have a spare 64GB class 10 but that seems like overkill?
Typical noob stuff and apologies for such a basic thing but documentation seems a bit weird where this machine is concerned.
I assume I need latest versions of
Basic beginner Scenes: Dronescape, skitter and so on…
But there are no real docs on how to make a SD card.
the most current instructions can be found on the update page. the brief version is:
format the sd card as MS-DOS making sure the volume name is ALEPH
download the latest release here (aleph-150718.zip is a full release even though only lines changed)
unzip the release and copy it onto the card, if you are on a Mac you can double click the copy.command file)
once you have the card setup; insert it, hold down the edit/play button (the square one above the encoders) while powering on the aleph. use the encoders to select aleph-bees-0.6.2.hex then press load. at this point you should see a checker board like progress indicator as the device is re-flashed. once complete the aleph will reboot and you should be good to go.
