The '''PINE A64''' is ''PINE64's'' first Single Board Computer powered by Allwinner’s A64 quad-core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit SoC. There are many Operating Systems available for the PINE A64 created by the open source community and various partner projects. Currently the majority of Linux distributions for the PINE A64 are using mainline Linux but there are a number of BSP-based distribution and / or legacy systems that can be downloaded too.

** Disclaimer: Please note that PINE64 SBC is not a "final" product and in general certification is not necessary. However, PINE64 still submit the SBC for FCC, CE, and ROHS certifications and obtain the certificates to prove that the SBC board can pass the testing. Please note, a final commercial product needs to perform its own testing and obtain its own certificate.

The PINE A64

The PINE A64 is PINE64's first Single Board Computer powered by Allwinner’s A64 quad-core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit SoC. There are many Operating Systems available for the PINE A64 created by the open source community and various partner projects. Currently the majority of Linux distributions for the PINE A64 are using mainline Linux but there are a number of BSP-based distribution and / or legacy systems that can be downloaded too.

Software and OS Image Downloads

PINE A64(+)

Note that PINE A64(+) OS images are not compatible with PINE A64-LTS due to its LPDDR3 memory configuration.

For PINE A64-LTS OS image downloads please refer to the SoPine and Pine64-LTS Section

Under PINE A64(+) Software and OS Image Download Section you will find a complete list of currently supported Operating System images that work with the PINE A64(+) as well as other related software.

The list includes OS images and descriptions of:

Armbian

AOSC

Fedora Base Image

openSUSE

OpenWRT

Volumio 2 Digital Audio Player

FreedomBox

motionEyeOS

DietPi

LibreELEC(KODI)

NetBSD

Android 6.x / Android 5.x
