Thank you for your tutorial! Very good! Instead "sudo nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf" I suggest "sudo nano etc/dhcpcd.conf" or "sudo nano /media/<USERNAME>/rootfs/etc/dhcpcd.conf". Thank you Shawn!
Thank you for the super well written tutorial. One of the best that i've seen. It covers all the different options in super details :)
An often-overlooked feature of Etcher is that you can point it at the compressed (.ZIP) version of the image to flash directly, rather than having to waste time and disk space unzipping it first. It will unZIP it as part of the flashing operation! This becomes doubly important with the non-Lite versions of the Raspberry Pi image. Those are more than 4 GB in size, so require a 64-bit unZIP program - which Etcher is...
Sweet! I just tried it out, and it worked like a charm. Thank you, I didn't know about it's unzipping abilities :)
Thank you Shawn! Very helpful! Sincerely, Mark

This is a lovely guide, thank you for writing it! A quick note for those running on an rPi 4 model B: The pinout diagram shows that the pins are up one pin each compared to the pinout for the rPi 3 used in the documentation.
