Ok. I got past the first issue i think. The documentation for mac is a bit off-- it doesnt specify that you need to put /dev infront of the disk.

I did `sudo dd if=~/Downloads/ubuntu-15.04-esdk-2016.3-headless-z7020.img of=/dev/disk2 bs=1m` and it worked.

NOW an new issue!

I boot up, and the CR10 light comes on steady, but the CR8 light blinks-- any ideas?

Fixed in the 2016.11 release
Download parabuntu-2016.11.1-headless-z7020.img.gz from here:
