Yes, this is is an install from the archlinuxarm Raspberry Pi 4 page using the aarch64 image rather than the arm7 one. It was a clean install, which I then updated with pacman -Syyu. I double-checked and the raspberrypi-bootloader was definitely the 20200916-1 version. On reboot I get the rainbow boot screen, and the green and amber lights on the Ethernet port we’re constantly lit. I also manually downloaded the raspberrypi-bootloader package and copied the files over to the boot partition, with the same result.

I also have 2 Raspberry Pi 4 models (2gb and 8gb RAM) running the arm7 image, and an update to the 20200916-1 bootloader on both was successful.

Pelwell on the raspberrypi/firmware github has posted a workaround for non-booting aarch64 installs - add
Code: Select all
kernel_address=0x80000
to config.txt. A proper fix has been made and, presumably, this will appear for Arch users shortly.

If you can wait until the build system gets it, and it gets out to the mirrors, you can update to alarm/raspberrypi-bootloader to 20200917-1 which will fix it without any modifications.
