Our main website is now on the RockPro64 Cluster as well! This mostly concludes our infrastructure move (though there's some file storage left to go...).

Thanks for your patience with any downtime or slowness you have have experienced over the past few hours!

The Pine64 forum ( has now moved to its new home on our cluster, but the change may not have made it to your DNS server yet.

If you see the banner shown below, you are on the now active forum! If you see a message about read-only mode, DNS has not updated for you yet.

We're now in the midst of our transition to hosting all infrastructure on the Cluster!

- Forum ( will begin its transition at 6pm UTC on June 9th. It will be in read-only mode until the transition is complete.
