Why Etcher?

Here at resin.io we have thousands of users working through our getting started process and until recently we were embarassed about the steps that involved burning an SD card. There was a separate track for each Mac/Windows/Ubuntu and several manual and error prone steps along the way.

To our surprise there was nothing out there that fitted our needs. So we built balenaEtcher, a SD card burner app that is simple for end users, extensible for developers, and works on any platform.

Validated Burning

No more writing images on corrupted cards and wondering why your device isn't booting.

Hard Drive Friendly

Makes drive selection obvious to avoid wiping your entire hard-drive

Beautiful Interface

Who said burning SD cards has to be an eyesore.

Open Source

Made with JS, HTML, node.js and Electron. Dive in and contribute!

Cross Platform

Works for everyone, no more complicated install instructions.

More on the way

50% faster burns, simultaneous writing for multiple drives. View our roadmap
