    I was looking exactly for this also. It would be amazing to be able to host a small server on a raspi ! I've done it for the java version but Bedrock is more reliable for weak computers and playing on mobile.

    Voted! This would be incredible, we shouldn't need to rely on cloud servers just to run a server. We only have one option for now, use Docker.

    Agreed However lets take it a step further.

    Instead of just adding one ARM device (namely the Raspberry Pi) Why not make it open source. I can see why this would be frowned upon by Microsoft and Mojang so you don't have to do it completely. Make a compiled version, kinda like a zip or jar, but also provide a make file of some way so that if you get a little more involve you could compile for almost all devices with make files created by the community. This also opens gates for DIY devices, sorta like an Arduino or a Raspberry Pi without clutter of an OS, etc..., that only runs the server and is highly optimized for the engine.

     

    TL;DR -

    Make files to allow for more platforms to host servers.

    I was looking for this too! Looks like a perfect fit for small servers.

    I was hoping for this implementation too. The RaspberryPi and many other SBCs such as the Tinkerboard, Rock 64 and Odroid would be great hardware to run small servers with a small energy footprint.

    Would love to see Bedrock server port for my pi. They are more than powerful enough these day and for a small family server these would be ideal.

    This would be even better now, with the Raspberry Pi 4.

    Specifically Linux ARM builds, not so much interested in Windows ARM builds :|

    I was hoping to get a Raspberry Pi 4b to run a Bedrock Server on, but it seems the Minecraft server software doesn’t support ARM yet. Please make this available to us.

    I was so disappointed when I saw that I couldn't host servers on my pi. Please add this!

    Just got my first Pi and was pretty disappointed that you can't run a dedicated server. Please make this one happen!

    Please specify that it does not support ARM devices on the download page at least.

    I could justify buying more copies of the game if there was an ARM server that could run on a raspberry pi.

    I am voting on this YES!!! I just tried to set one up on my new Pi4 and was sad that there is no precompiled arm version!

    This isn't even hard to do. Why are we still waiting for this?

    It's quite frankly silly that they haven't already done this!! I've voted.

    As of late, Apple has announced that they are going to switch from x86 CPUs to ARM based CPUs. Knowing that the industry usually follows Apple's trajectory, its not far fetched to say that eventually everything is going to have to be compiled to run on ARM based CPUs. Compiling the Official bedrock server software to run on ARM based CPUs would ensure its future compatibility.

    I would love to be able to host a minecraft bedrock server from a raspberry pi 4.
