If you ever used the dd tool to flash an SD card with an image or something similar then you will be familiar with the long waits not knowing if it’s even doing anything, dcfldd is here to help you !
You use the command exactly the same as the dd one, so for example using dd you would write :
$ sudo dd bs=4M if=/path/to/file of=/path/to/device && sync
replacing “/path/to/file” and “/path/to/device” with the relevant information, would become :
$ sudo dcfldd bs=4M if=/path/to/file of=/path/to/device && sync
when you hit enter and input your password you should see some information detailing the process of the issued command, like so (i stole the photo from another post on google i found) :
I’m definitely going to be using it instead of dd, will you ?
