You could do something similar to the process we use to make pre-built
images. For example, your linaro-media-create line currently is probably
linaro-media-create --dev overo --mmc /dev/sdb .......
You can change this to something like:
linaro-media-create --dev overo --image_file file.img --image_size 3G
This will create file.img which you could then "dd" to your SD cards.
