Update (Dec 12): Multi arch support is now in the production OpenStore! Thank you to everyone who tested!

The OpenStore now has multi arch support, almost. Today I’ve pushed multi arch support to the new staging environment for the OpenStore. You can find this test bed at with is obnoxious red header. This is to serve as a place to test new OpenStore features before release to avoid any major issues. I would encourage anyone to test out the new multi arch support in staging. And to that end, the latest unreleased update to the OpenStore app now supports using the new staging environment. You can download the armhf or arm64 version via the GitLab CI. To enable the staging environment simple place the following in /etc/profile.d/


Reboot your device and then the OpenStore app will display a message to let you know that you are no longer using This is not recommended for use on your daily driver phone! A huge thank you to anyone willing to invest some time in testing. Please report any bugs in the bug tracker.
