Disk images

These disk images (*.img or *.sdimg) are based on images provided by board manufacturers and already have Mender fully integrated. They are used to provision the device storage for devices without Mender running already.

Mender provides images based on the following distributions:

Note that we do not offer commercial support for these images. They are based on images supported by board manufacturers, like the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and provide the same software and configuration options as the original images. Please use the support resources available from the board manufacturer, or contact us if you have any questions on the Mender integration.

Board OS Disk image Storage size
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and B+ Raspberry Pi OS Buster Lite 2020-05-27 raspios-buster-lite-raspberrypi3-mender.img.xz 8 GB
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Raspberry Pi OS Buster Lite 2020-05-27 raspios-buster-lite-raspberrypi4-mender.img.xz 8 GB

You can find images for other devices in our Mender Hub community forum, see Debian Family or Yocto Project integration posts.

Mender Artifact

To download mender-artifact as an standalone tool, follow the correct link according to your host platform:

Platform Download link
Linux mender-artifact 3.3.0
Mac OS X mender-artifact 3.3.0

Remember to add execute permission (e.g. with chmod +x mender-artifact).

$ sudo mv mender-artifact /usr/local/bin/

If you need to build mender-artifact from source, please see Compiling mender-artifact.

Mac OS X note: Please remember, that mender-artifact when working with disk image files (e.g.: *.sdimg, *.img, or others holding the storage partitions) under Mac OS X has limited functionalities, and commands like mender-artifact cat or mender-artifact cp will not work, due to lack of support for certain utilities on the Mac platform.
