Latest commit

**Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.**
The original file is only available in English, which makes it difficult for German-speaking users to understand and use the project.

**Describe the solution you'd like**
I have translated the file into German to better serve German-speaking users. The translation includes all essential information and instructions for using the project.

**Describe alternatives you've considered**
I considered leaving the file in English only, but decided that a German translation would provide better accessibility and usability for German-speaking users.

**Additional context**
The original file has been updated and renamed to to clearly indicate that it is a German translation. The translation has been thoroughly reviewed and checked for accuracy.

I have also considered translating the rest of the documentation that is referenced in the text, however, the content is not available in a easily processable form at this time.

The current arozos is still under intense development. System structure might change at any time. Please only develop on the current existing ArOZ Gateway Interface (AGI) JavaScript Interface or standard HTML webapps with ao_module.js endpoints.


User Interface

  • Web Desktop Interface (Better than Synology DSM)
  • Ubuntu remix Windows style startup menu and task bars
  • Clean and easy to use File Manager (Support drag drop, upload etc)
  • Simplistic System Setting Menu
  • No-bull-shit module naming scheme


  • FTP Server
  • Static Web Server
  • WebDAV Server
  • UPnP Port Forwarding
  • Samba (Supported via 3rd party sub-services)
  • WiFi Management (Support wpa_supplicant for Rpi or nmcli for Armbian)

File / Disk Management

  • Mount / Format Disk Utilities (support NTFS, EXT4 and more!)
  • Virtual File System Architecture
  • File Sharing (Similar to Google Drive)
  • Basic File Operations with Real-time Progress (Copy / Cut / Paste / New File or Folder etc)


  • oAuth
  • LDAP
  • IP White / Blacklist
  • Exponential login timeout


  • ECMA5 (JavaScript like) scripting interface
  • 3rd party Go / Python module development with sub-service reverse proxy


  • Require as little as 512MB system memory and 8GB system storage
  • Base on one of the most stable Linux distro - Debian
  • Support for Desktop, Laptop (touchpad) and Mobile screen sizes


Require GO 1.14 or above (See Instllation tutorial)

Run the following the command to build the system

git clone
cd ./arozos/src/
go build
#sudo ./arozos for enabling hardware and WiFi management features

(Yes, it is that simple)


For Raspberry Pi (For Raspberry Pi 4B+)

If you are using Raspberry Pi as your host, you can download one of the images and flash the image into your SD card. You will find a new network device named "ArozOS (ARxxx)" pop up in your "Network Neighbourhood". Double click the icon and you will be redirect to the system Web setup interface. If you cannot find the new device in your network, you can also connect to the ArozOS directly via http://{raspberry_pi_ip_address}:8080/

Version Download Mirror Remarks
arozos v1.119 Updated to Raspberry Pi OS 64-bit. See compatible list here
arozos v1.118 (v2) Support Pi zero 2w
arozos v1.115 (Stable) Build in WsTTY
arozos v1.114 EOL Unstable, upgrade to 1.115 if you are still using this version
arozos v1.113
arozos v1.112 (Stable) Bug fix and patches for v1.111
arozos v1.111 (Stable) IoT Hub Added
arozos v1.110 (Stable)
arozos v1.109
arozos v1.108 WebDAV Support Added
arozos v1.107 Samba Supported Added
arozos v1.106

All the image listed above require 8GB or above microSD card

To optain the .img file, you can unzip the compressed image using 7zip. If you don't have it, you can get it here

For All Pi models

Build from source using installer script (Recommended)

Since v1.119, arozos pre-build image has been moved from the original Raspberry Pi OS 32-bit to 64-bit for better utilization of system resources. For older version of Pis, you can install arozos with the command below with a fresh installation of Raspberry Pi OS

curl -L | bash

or without curl

cd ~/
sudo chmod 775 ./

The installer will install all the required dependencies including ffmpeg and go compiler. To confirm installation success, check for the execution status of arozos using the following command.

sudo systemctl status arozos

Using prebuilt binary

See installation steps for other ARM SBC (but use the arozos_linux_arm binary instead of arozos_linux_arm64)

For other ARM SBC(e.g. Orange Pi / Banana Pi / Friendly ARM's Pis)

Download the correct architecture binary from the "release" tab and upload the binary with the "web" and "system" folder in "/src". After upload, you should have the following file structure

$ ls
arozos_linux_arm64  web  system

Start the binary by calling sudo ./arozos_linux_arm64 (or without sudo if you prefer no hardware management)


If you are deploying on Windows, you need to add ffmpeg to %PATH% environment variable.

This system can be built and run on Windows hosts with the following build instructions

# Download the whole repo as zip and cd into it
cd .\arozos\src\
go build

However, not all features are available for Windows.


Thanks Saren for creating this amazing DockerFile

Storage Configuration

Deploying Single Machine

If you are deploying single machine, you can visit System Setting > Disk & Storage > Storage Pools and edit the "system" storage pool for setting up the global storage pools for all users in the system.

Deploying on Multiple Machines

If you are deploying on multiple machines, you can take a look at the storage configuration file located in:


Rename the storage.json.example to storage.json and start arozos. The required virtual storage drives will be mounted accordingly.

ArOZ JavaScript Gateway Interface (AGI) / Plugin Loader

The ArOZ AJGI / AGI interface provide a javascript programmable interface for ArOZ Online users to create plugin for the system. To initiate the module, you can place a "init.agi" file in the web directory of the module (also named the module root). See more details in the AJGI Documentation.

ArozOS OTA Update Launcher

Since v1.119, ArozOS can perform OTA update with the help of the ArozOS Launcher. See the launcher's github repo for installation instructions.
