-======Launching the App====== 
-====Windows==== 
-Download the LibreELEC USB-SD Creator and double click on the .exe file you will have in your "​Download"​ folder. 
- 
-====macOS==== 
-Download the LibreELEC USB-SD Creator and double click on the .dmg file you will have in your "​Download"​ folder. This will mount the disk image on your desktop. You can run the application directly from the disk image or copy it to your /​Applications folder. ​ 
- 
-If the application displays a warning about not being from a known developer when first run, you will need to go to "​System Preferences"​ then "​Security and Privacy"​ and either click "Open Anyway"​ or allow "Apps downloaded from anywhere"​. If the change concerns you, permissions can be changed back after you use the app. 
- 
-Once the app launches it will ask for your username and password. This is because the macOS requires superuser (sudo/root) permissions to write directly to the USB or SD card. 
- 
-====Linux==== 
-Download the LibreELEC USB-SD Creator. After the download has finished, open a terminal and enter the following commands (assuming "​Downloads"​ is your default download folder and the filename is matching): 
- 
-  cd ~/Downloads 
-  chmod +x LibreELEC.USB-SD.Creator.Linux-32bit.bin ​ 
- 
-Now you are able to start the tool from the command line by entering: 
- 
-  sudo ./​LibreELEC.USB-SD.Creator.Linux-32bit.bin ​ 
-
