I'll trace out the context here for you and point you in the right direction, but as joan implies, if you are going to do this on a serious scale you should probably consult a lawyer versed in such things. the Buster OS Buster is the nick (or "code") name of the current version (10) of Raspbian, sort of like how various OSX versions used to be called Big ...

So, it turns out I did not have enough power and I was using a lot of the pins. I also may have accidentally damaged something as well. I have decided to get a refund (which was successful) and just buy a new one from canakit. I will try to be more careful. Usually, Amazon is good with returns.

You Don't flash a SD card with NOOBS you have to format the SD card then copy NOOBS on to it. NOTE this is harder, takes longer, wastes 1.3GB of your SD card and is almost impossible to update, which is why most of us DON'T use NOOBS NOTE the The Boot Problems Sticky doesn't really apply to NOOBS - it is geared at Raspbian boot problems.

There is an app called sdcrad copier (piclone) available now. Use that app to make a complete backup of your OS and you can use that later.

After trying all the software solutions available on internet i moved onto hardware issues and figured out there is very small crack on the SD card that can not be observed easily. i observed it with flashlight. Its cause was the SD slot of raspberry pi. I put the PI in my backpack where he received some ...

I've been thinking about something similar for testing development/deployment from a fresh install of Raspbian. My current thinking is a dual sd-card, usb-drive set up. So on each boot, the pi first boots into the sd-card, flashes a fresh install to the usb drive, and then chroots into the usb-drive to start the os. Though as this is only text, i've only ...

You could do this, BUT I wouldn't. It will produce a large backup, and running dd on a live image is not a good idea. You can't use vfat but could use any format which allows large files and is supported by Pi (e.g. exFAT) although ext4 is recommended. The split technique suggested by RalfFriedl would work I would suggest you look at How to shrink the ...

You can use any filesystem, including vfat, that is able to store a file, as described by @RalfFriedl in his answer. But if you use the simple dd command you have noted you will not get a consistent backup of your running system. Executing the command takes time and while this time many dynamic files will change on the disk that will be stored at different ...

Yes, you can create a backup with that command. The filesystem doesn't matter as long as it supports file of the required size. The maximum file length with VFAT is 4GiB. If your SD card is larger than 4GiB, you can still create a backup to a VFAT file system, but you have to split it into multiple files. sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1M | split -b 2G /mnt/...

Assuming your polyfuse is in a good condition(can be tested by measuring voltage between PP7 and PP4 (gnd) this should be 5V...did you Short circuit anything? or supply more than 5V.) if it isn't then wait for sometime if it still doesn't work then there is permanent damage to the polyfuse and needs to be replaced. Here are some ways to revive a RPi Try ...
