Downloads

Updating/upgrading to the latest Arch Linux ARM release

Since Arch Linux ARM is a rolling distribution, you never need to download releases or run large upgrade scripts. The entire system is kept up-to-date by running one command:

pacman -Syu

The latest versions of packages are always available to all of our users. The only time you have to download the full Arch Linux ARM rootfs or image is when you're installing for the very first time.

What should I download?

If you're following an installation guide on Arch Linux ARM or the forums, you most likely do not have to download anything from this page, unless instructed to do so. These downloads are generic releases for the various architectures we support. If you installed Arch Linux ARM onto a device we currently do not support, post about it in the Forum!

Where is my device?

The released downloads are designed for the specific systems above; however, our package repositories work with any ARM device compatible with ARMv5 or Cortex-A8/A9 instructions. Simply download the tarball that best fits and supply your own kernel. If you have any questions, contact us on the forums or on IRC.
