This page contains direct links to the latest versions of the most popular downloads from Linaro. These include a selection of builds including Android, the LAVA test framework and key toolchains.

Linaro Member Builds

LMBs are full system builds of popular open-source products set up at the request of a Linaro Core/Club Member company.

Linaro Stable Kernel (LSK)

The LSK is a version of’s Long-Term Stable (LTS) release with new Linaro developed optimizations and ARM support integrated. There are two versions: a “Core” version for generic Linux and an “Android” version. Click right for the latest downloads.

Linaro Confectionary Release (LCR)

R-LCR is a build of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) from a stable release branch that includes platform support and other features. R-LCR includes the Android flavour of Linaro Stable Kernel (LSK) for all machine configurations.


Linaro Lava Logo

The Linaro Automated Validation Architecture (LAVA) is a test and continuous integration framework that Linaro uses to validate its releases. The source is open so that members and others can create their own instantiations and run proprietary tests within this standard framework. Click here for the latest downloads.

Linaro Networking


Linaro Lava Logo

The OpenDataPlane API has three implementations supported directly by LNG

  • Functional reference model that runs on any linux implementation (odp-linux-generic)
  • Performance implementation build for x86 using the DPDK SDK. (odp-dpdk)

Linaro Toolchain

Linaro provides monthly GCC source archive snapshots of the current Linaro GCC release branch, as well as quarterly releases of pre-built Linaro GNU cross-toolchain binary archives.

The following tables provide direct access to the most common Linux and bare-metal ABI variants of the Linaro binary cross-toolchain quarterly releases. Both x86_64 Linux and Mingw32 (MS Windows compatible) host binaries are provided:
