Atomic images for ARMv7

I would like to explore Project Atomic on a Raspberry Pi 2 (ARM Cortex-A7). What I get from the project's Q&A is that they defer the issue to Fedora, basically saying that once Fedora "targets ARM" Atomic is good to go.

However, ARM is supported. There even is a dedicated Pi version available at .

So, what else is there to have to build an "Atomic" image? Could I even build one on my own?

I'm looking to do an Atomic IoT spin for ARMv7 and aarch64, initially as a remix style, for a number of ARMv7 devices including possibly the Raspberry Pi 2/3 as part of Fedora 24.

There was a recent announcement around this -- the Atomic project now officially supports both aarch64 and ppc64le architectures:

However, this has only gotten us closer to Project Atomic on Raspi3. The post above explicitly states:

64-bit ARM is available for a variety of hardware. Installation should work as expected on server class hardware. However:

  • On aarch64 machine, Atomic Host ISO can be installed only in UEFI mode.
  • Installation is not yet supported on single board computer, such as RPi3 or Pine64.

They don't give specific reasons, but I would be willing to guess it's also UEFI related?
