Software and OS Image Downloads

PINE A64(+)

Note that PINE A64(+) OS images are not compatible with PINE A64-LTS due to LPDDR3 memory configuration. For PINE A64-LTS OS image downloads please see the SoPine and Pine64-LTS Section.


A complete list of currently supported Operating System images for the PINE A64(+) as well as other related software can be found in the 'PINE A64(+) Software and OS Image Download Section'. Below is a selection of curated OS images:




Provided are also H2testw 1.4 and F3 utilities used for checking microSD card performance, Allwinner's Phoenix Card bootable OS utility and other useful software.



Quick Links to the Source of OS Images Build

Some OS images are still in beta or nightly build which are only fit for testing purposes. These should usually be avoided for normal usage, since they are used at your own risk.
