Just FYI: I have the arm version working on the nVidia Jetson Nano, and made no changes to anything except local settings. However, I can't advise how long the tasks take to run because I can't figure out how to get the "advanced" menu/screen on the Nano. Btw, it is an ARM machine with hardware floats, takes only 15 watts to run, and costs $100 for the "development" versions (cheapest.) IIRC, it has 4 processors along with some "cuda cores," so GPU assisted LHC projects are an excellent candidate for it. HINT HINT

Advise: install an external SSD or other USB 3 hard drive ($30 for 128gig now), "chroot" so you boot from the SD card but /root runs only on the hard drive, and finally, set at least 8 Gb or so for swap space. That will prevent the dreaded "out of memory" errors we see on SO many ARM tasks.

Extra note: It sits idle about half the time, so I assume ARM jobs are not pushed out 100% of the time. Yes, I have the test flag set.

Oh, it's a bit faster then the RPi3; others say it's faster than the -4 as well but I personally have not tested that.

Minor bug report: when I click on the Nano BOINC notices box, I get a popup window but it's never populated with anything. Just blank.

The server status page has been showing for a long time that 8 sixtracktest tasks are on the ready to send buffer to be downloaded. They seem to be stuck as nobody has downloaded them yet. My both hosts have sixtracktext enabled.

Yes if there were actually 8 Test tasks ready to send they would be long gone since Sixtrack has the most members and pc's running and you know how it has always been with Sixtrack tasks. (all of mine are set to get Test tasks)

Imagine if we had this many back in 2004-2005 ....I hit that Update tab many,many times back then just to get a few 25 second tasks
