    Same problem here. Until there's a fix, the workaround is

    • Download and unzip the .img.gz
    $ gunzip LibreELEC-RPi2.arm-9.2.6.img.gz
    • Erase the SD card via Disk Utility as MS FAT (MBR)
    • Confirm which disk it is, in my case, /dev/disk2
    $ diskutil list
    /dev/disk2 (internal, physical):
    #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
    0:     FDisk_partition_scheme                        *32.0 GB    disk2
    1:                 DOS_FAT_32 ⁨32G⁩                     32.0 GB    disk2s1

    • Unmount via diskutil so you don't get a Resource Busy error (doing it via UI did not work for me as CLI would not see the SD anymore)

    $ sudo diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk2
    Unmount of all volumes on disk2 was successful

    • Copy the image to SD using dd

    $ sudo dd if=LibreELEC-RPi2.arm-9.2.6.img of=/dev/disk2 bs=1m
    549+0 records in
    549+0 records out
    575668224 bytes transferred in 168.306795 secs (3420350 bytes/sec)

    That should do it.


    I can't help but notice nothing seems to be working here, or things look a bit odd..

    * I go to the RPi3 link and it shows me the download for RPi2 (maybe they both share the same, but if so it could have been presented better).

    * Moving on, I download the macOS version of the installer, but it fails when I run it with error

    * Ok.. back to the download page, I click on the instructions for the app link, and it redirects me to a 404 page.

    * I google around, and find links to the wiki, but clicking on them, isn't even resolving

    Is this project still being maintained? Is something going wrong lately?
