$ sudo dd if=${BIN_FILE} of=/dev/${USB_FLASH_DRIVE}
${BIN_FILE} must be .bin file name like wayne-os-usb16g-1q21.bin.
${USB_FLASH_DRIVE} must be a device name like sdx, Not a partition name like sdx1.
Warning: If you write local storage (ex: hdd/ssd) name on it by mistake, you will lose data on the local storage so please check the device name carefully by lsblk.
