last week I finally migrated from running Roon on my Synology to ROCK. The installation went well and I think Roon’s KB walking through the setup are reasonably well written. Although, I have noticed and in case I am not the only one experiencing this, the lates version of balenaEtcher which is linked from the Roon KB ROCK Install Guide did not work on my M1 MacBook.
It simply stopped the flashing process without any error message or anything. I had to look for a ARM version of Etcher and made it work that way. The version I am using (v.1.7.8) is pretty outdated but at least that version asked for my admin password during the flashing process getting the correct authentication to flash the USB drive.
In case others are experiencing something similar I hope this helps.
Also working fine for me on various Apple Silicon machines. Used many times. Version 1.7.8 (not sure why auto update didn’t carry it forward). Activity Monitor says it’s the Intel architecture version.
