We were all set to do a build for someone recently who claimed that they needed a 64 bit build for their pi3, and that's when we found that our standard Loaders actually worked just fine. Digging further it transpired that while the pi3 has a 64 bit architecture, the OS releases being provided at the time (at least as standard) and hence the binaries are all 32 bit.
I've seen the inevitable 64 bit OS interest, though just 4 days ago there was a comment on the PI forum saying:
"I suppose the Pi4, if it is to be competitive, may have more memory - which will trigger a 64-bit OS"
Is it possible to buy a PI3 that's shipped with a 64 bit OS yet? _________________ Community Admin
The standard RPI os provided are 32 bit so your loader works fine.
Debian now supports 64 bit arch on them and this will continue to mature and other arm boards will become available.
If you can start preparations to release a loader for arm 64 (a arch 64) that would be great.
