So this is basically the upgrade for Raspberry Pi everyone has been waiting for!
How to install:
Download the image/zip file from the download location. Verify that the download completed successfully.
After that, install Etcher (
sudo pacman -S etcher if on Manjaro) and burn it to an SD card (8 GB or larger).
Put the SD card into Raspberry Pi 4's SD card slot on the main board and boot it up. The Raspberry Pi 4 should recognize the SD card as a bootable device and boot from it.
On the first boot, it will display an OEM installer. After you have made your choices it will reboot into your newly setup system.
- No VC4 driver yet for 64-bit.
- OS can only see up to 3GB of RAM, even if the device has more.
