An unofficial Debian build for ARM64 running with the [https://developer.puri.sm/Librem5/Software_Reference/Environments/Phosh.html phosh user interface] (developed by Purism, phosh uses [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayland_(display_server_protocol) Wayland] instead of [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X.Org_Server Xorg]). The base system is pure Debian, with only the GUI applications and a few others (ModemManager, Wifi chip firmware) being built from modified sources (as well as the kernel and u-boot, of course). Current version is Debian Sid, as needed packages are not yet in testing (Debian Bullseye).

Most of Debian's repository is available. There are packages that need to be cross compiled ("ported") to ARM64 (see [https://wiki.debian.org/Arm64Port Debian's wiki on ARM64 port]), but the process is fairly easy. Most developers package their software for the AMD64 version of Debian, so they will throw an error when run; if you have the source code, you can compile it to run on ARM64/PinePhone. If you do so, you should contact the developers so they can provide precompiled ARM64 packages for others in the future. You should also contact Debian if you have working ARM64 packages not listed on [https://wiki.debian.org/Arm64Port this page], since this helps them track the status of ARM64 with Debian. Currently their wiki page is out of date.
