1 Prepare Micro SD Card

  1. Get a new Micro SD card (8GB should suffice, 16GB is fine as well)
  2. Acquire the latest automatically built firmware image from: https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/axiom-beta-firmware/releases
  3. download, install and start Etcher: https://www.balena.io/etcher/
  4. Flash the acquired image to a new Micro SD card with Etcher (we highly recommend not overwriting the Micro SD card you currently use in your AXIOM Beta)
  5. After flashing put the Micro SD card into the AXIOM Beta Microzed Slot and power up the Beta
