MIC Image Creator

MIC is an image creator used when creating images for Tizen. With the MIC tool, you can:

  • Create images of different types for different verticals, such as:
    • Live CD images
    • Live USB images
    • Raw images for KVM
    • Loop images for IVI platforms
    • fs images for chrooting
  • Chroot into an image using MIC’s enhanced chroot command.
  • Convert an image to another image format.

This is a very useful function when handling situations sensitive to image format.

Before going into further MIC details, make sure you have set up the development environment and learned how to install and upgrade tools.
