So my SheevaPlug is getting pretty old at this point. Or, at least, it's install is. It started out with Lenny. Stayed there till I couldn't download updates anymore, and moved to Squeeze. Now Wheezy is out so I imagine Squeeze is on it's way out, much like Lenny was. Either way, my install must be about 3 years old now, I'm rather amazed at how well it's held up. The 8gb SD card I put it on is nearly full, I'd like to step up to a 32gb this time, they've certainly come WAY down in price. I'd like to do a fresh install of Wheezy, what's the ideal way to do that, nowadays?
I've already got the unit set to boot off the SD card, and the kernel is still in the onboard flash (I've kept that up to date, updating it every couple months or so), so it should just be a matter of putting a fresh Wheezy image on the new SD Card.. I don't think we ever had a system as simple as the Raspberry Pi where I just download a .img file and DD it onto the card, which is a shame, that technique is quite nice.
So how do I do this?

Try copying one of the Sheevaplug images to a MicroSD, I think the Guru will boot off that image

OK I might try that.

but silly question.

The image are dated from 2011 or 2012

Will they update to the latest Wheezy once plugged in the plug?

I would expect them to if you run an update.
I switched to wheezy just be editing my /etc/apt/sources.list file to change all instances of "squeeze" to "wheezy" then doing an update. Well, I seem to recall  had to remove an sgml package causing some odd dependency failure, and had to forcibly update one perl package manually, but apart from that it all went OK with several hundred (or >1000 - I forget) package updates.

I have a 16gig usb key and I installed the 8Gb image in the end as the 16G image wasn't fitting on the key.

A little help from gparted and I resized the partition to use the remaining space

Now I just need to find some time to boot from it and reinstall my freeswitch server on it.
