Ethereum on ARM documentation

Welcome to the Ethereum on ARM documentation.

Ethereum on ARM is a set of custom Linux images for ARM boards that runs Ethereum clients as a boot service and automatically turns the devices into full Ethereum 1.0/2.0 nodes.

The image takes care of all the necessary steps to run a node, from setting up the environment and formatting the SSD disk to installing, managing and running the Eth1.0 and Eth2.0 clients.

If you are familiar with Ethereum and have already ran an Ethereum node you can jump to our Quick Start guide and get your node up and running in no time.

If you need more info, please use the Quick Start to install the image and visit the User Guide in order to get further info on Ethereum how to manage the clients.

Note

We are currently focusing on the Raspberry Pi 4 image. We will add more devices once we make sure they are reliable and have enough resources to run both Eth1 and Eth2 nodes.

Quick Start Guide

For running a node, follow the step-by-step guide.

The process is as follows:

  • Download and flash the Image into an MicroSD card

  • Connect the SSD to the USB port and the Ethernet Cable

  • Power on the device

  • Wait till the installation script finish all tasks

  • Enable and run an Ethereum client

User Guide

This section describes in detail how to configure and run the Ethereum nodes as well as other information regarding the image and other Ethereum related software.
