Powering down a Raspberry Pi

Apologies if this has been answered already. A search hasn’t found anything as yet.

The details for V2 say that the core is a read-only image. Does this mean that the Pi can have it’s PSU switched off without damaging the microSD image?

I have potential problems with other family members wanting to just ‘pull the plug’ rather than go through the shutdown option.

Looking forward to trying V2. The image is writing as I type this…

Yes, altough we still recommend shutting it down properly (some data might not be written, for example your music db or playlist, but this won’t cause damage)

Thanks for confirming.
