Writing Raspberry Pi disk images to SD cards on the Mac

Just as the dd command can be used to create a disk image of an SD card on the Mac (see here), you can use dd to write a downloaded (or backup) disk image to an SD card too:

sudo dd of=/dev/rdiskx if=/path/to/image bs=1m

where x is the disk number as shown by diskutils list.
