Extending wordings associated with each Pi dd image, would be very welcome, to specificaly list all hardware version of a Pi each image of v6, v7, aarch64, the image should boot. As a newbie to Raspberry Pi (but not FreeBSD) I have long been confused which image is for which version of Pi hardware. I previously had some kind of a 3B, & now have a "Pi 3 Model B+", but have not got beyond booting images, starting to customise /etc/ & then it crashes yet again, needing yet another dd, & repeat, Being certain one is using the right image would be nice.
