installing openelec on usb stick and raspberry pi.
#1
reading the tutorial on home page , i am confused in that some of the files/folders that need to be copied and pasted to the SD card are not in the "openelec" .img folder when i open it on my desktop ?

when i open the extracted img folder on my mac  , i have no file entitled 
openelec.ico 

no folder called 3rdparty/bootloder
the kernel file is already in lower case and ends in .img



OpenELEV-RPi2.arm-6.0.3.img  
  is the download i have been using and extracting to flash my SD cards.
the ,img folder when opened is entitled “ NO NAME “ and contains 
bcm2709-rpi-2-b.dtb
bcm2710-rpi3-b.dtb
bootcode bin
cmdline.txt
config.txt
fixup.dat
kernel.img
overlays
start.elf
SYSTEM

could someone tell me where i am going wrong ?
please?

Hi
Go to YouTube and look for user In Easy Steps. he has a video posted "Raspberry Pi Mac SD card set up.
Very easy to follow.
