The Raspberry Pi 2 is the successor to the Raspberry Pi. It builds upon the original model B+ upgrading to 1 GB of RAM, and replacing the aged ARMv6 single-core with an ARMv7 Cortex-A7 quad-core.
The Raspberry Pi 2 measures 85.60mm x 53.98mm x 17mm, with a little overlap for the SD card and connectors which project over the edges. The SoC is a Broadcom BCM2836. This contains an quad-core Cortex-A7 running at 900Mhz, and a Videocore 4 GPU.
Replace sdX in the following instructions with the device name for the SD card as it appears on your computer.

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdX2 mkdir root mount /dev/sdX2 root
