3.2. Assuming that the SD Card is on /dev/disk4, you may have a subpartition (say, disk4s2) that you need to unmount:

diskutil umount /dev/disk4s2

3.3. Copy the image:

sudo dd bs=1m if=<directory>/kaisipan-box-20200609.dmg of=/dev/rdisk4

3.4. Once done, dismount the disk properly:

diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk4



Please geolocate your deployment of the Kaisipan Box, so we can put you on the map. One way to geolocate a school, for instance, is to use a mobile app called UTM Geo Map. Send the coordinates and the name of the school or institution to Sending pictures of students and teachers (with their permission) using the Box could help in the documentation of the Project.
