Hi,

I have a Pi 1 (ARMv6) and recently I got a Pi 3 (ARMv8). I was wondering if there is plans to produce an ARMv7 executable to run on the Pi 3? Also, I went and got 2 Orange Pi's which are also ARMv7. I think creating an app optimized for the ARMv7 architecture for Linux would speed up tasks. Currently, a task running in my Android phone runs for about 2 hours, where in both Pi's the running time is approximately 6 hours. For the Pi 1 it is fine, but I believe the Pi 3 could have shorter time with an app optimized for the ARMv7 instruction set, since the task runtime is mostly the same as the Pi 1. I'm running Raspbian BTW, and I will run Raspbian on both of the Orange Pi I'll get delivered next week.

As I run Enigma on a few Orange Pi PC (ARMv7), I'm very interested in an optimized appli for those SBC.

Keep-us-up-to-date on your progress.

I have two Raspberry Pi 2s (ARMv7) and two Raspberry Pi 3s (ARMv8).
The present raspberry application is for the original Raspberry with its single core ARMv6 BCM2835.
BCM2835 Features: swp, half, thumb, fastmult, VFP, edsp, java/jazelle, tls

Raspberry Pi 2 (Quad Core ARM Cortex-A7)
BCM2836 Features: half, thumb, fastmult, VFP, edsp, NEON, VFPv3, tls, VFPv4, idiva, idivt, VFPd32, lpae, evtstrm

Raspberry Pi 3 (Quad Core ARM Cortex-A53)
BCM2837 Features: half, thumb, fastmult, VFP, edsp, NEON, VFPv3, tls, VFPv4, idiva, idivt, VFPd32, lpae, evtstrm, CRC32
