Distributions for ARM Devices
PostmarketOS (pmOS), is a Alpine Linux based distribution for mobile devices. View the device list to see the progress for supporting your device.
For devices that do not have prebuilt images, you will need to flash it manually using the pmbootstrap utility. Follow instructions here. Be sure to also check the device's wiki page for more information on what is working.
PostmarketOS also provides a nightly repository that tracks Plasma development, and is used by developers.
Debian provides a basic set of packages related to plasma-mobile in its repositories since release 12, codenamed bookworm. The packaging effort is continuing even after the release of bookworm, allowing a broader set of packages to be available.
Thanks to the efforts of the developers of Mobian project (a mobile derivative of Debian), flashable images based on Plasma Mobile are now available!
Instructions to manually install Plasma mobile on existing Debian systems can be found on Debian wiki.
