Testing dev builds

Doing it manually

Head to manjaro Releases review on Github and download your test edition, the ISO files are split in two, match files with the same name ending on (iso.zip & iso.z01)

Then on your terminal you have to join both files before unzipping.

pamac install zip

zip -FF ./manjaro-gnome-22.0-minimal-220913-linux519.iso.zip --out gnome-minimal.zip

unzip ./gnome-minimal.zip

At the end you will get a file ending in (.iso) that you can use in a virtual machine such as Vitualbox, Virt-manager or Gnome Boxes.

Using our tool

pamac install manjaro-iso-downloader

Downloading on ARM

If you are on manjaro-arm then the flasher is available to you, not available on x64.

pamac install manjaro-arm-flasher

Chose your device, edition, version and target media drive, it will download the image and flash it making it very convenient to use.

If you prefer to do it manually then head to the ARM release Github repository.
