Mobian primarily targets Linux-first devices, i.e. mobile devices made with the intent of running a Linux as the primary operating system, such as Pine64 devices and Purism's Librem 5. Those devices rely on software components widely used in the embedded software ecosystem, such as the u-boot bootloader and a (lightly patched) mainline Linux kernel. As such, their installation procedure is quite simple and similar to those used for other development boards and SBCs.
Supported Linux-first devices are currently:
The Pine64 PinePhone Pro is an unsupported work-in-progress.
Thanks to the work of the Linux mobile community, we are also able to support a few Android-based smartphones. Those can run a mainline kernel and usual Linux userspace software, however they still rely on the Android bootloader
To this day, supported Android devices are:
More supported devices will be added in the future, depending on mainline Linux support and hardware availability to the project's members.
If you own a device able to boot a mainline-based kernel, we'd be extremely happy if you could contribute support for it.
