Create the Booting TF Card

Get the device node of TF card:

After you've inserted the TF card to your PC, use dmesg | tail to find out what /dev/device it is. You can also use parted or fdisk, It should be something like /dev/sdX:

$ sudo parted -l
...
Model: Mass Storage Device (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 3997MB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Disk Flags: 

Number  Start   End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
 1      16.5MB  3989MB  3973MB  primary  fat32        boot

Make sure the disk is unmounted:

$ sudo umount /dev/sdb1

Use dd to write the disk image into TF card:

sudo dd if=Vim_LibreELEC_V161003/update.img of=/dev/sdb bs=4M && sync

Notice: sync is ensure the changes are synced to the TF card before removing it.

Eject the TF card:

$ sudo eject /dev/sdb

Done.

Now you can insert the TF card into VIM, and enjoy the LibreELEC!
