Look under assets at the bottom of each release? Release 4 is the latest one, it's the file ending in .zst. Just flash that as per the instructions.

OK so I have it downloaded,

  When I attempt to use Balena Etcher to flash it to an SD card,  Balena Etcher warns me this is NOT a bootable image ?

You have to extract it first. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4535...ng-tar-zst


Code:
$ tar -I zstd -xvf archive.tar.zst

I attempted to install software app that can compress/uncompress  the zst file,  but somewhere along the line it did not take.
There are other OSes that I can work with and try.
I will watch for this,  if they add files   " I can 'use'  I will try it again then".

I had also a bit of problems with uncompress of this image. The developer should use another file compression instead of zst.

I also had issues decompressing and flashing the image to sdcard, but I managed to get it working:

1. Install and use zstd to decompress image:
Code:
zstd -d fedora-rawhide-aarch64-mobile-04.img.zst

2. Use balenaEtcher to flash image to sdcard

I tried using dd to flash the image multiple times, but the sd card wouldn't boot. I flashed using balenaEtcher, and it booted just fine. I'm not sure why, though. I usually use dd, and don't typically bother with graphical image burning software.

My first attempt to flash Fedora also failed. I then flashed it with the Fedora Media Writer tool, that worked very well.

Just a quick update- as you may have noticed, progress has been stalled for a few weeks.

That's because we're moving from...
- the custom COPR repository
- manually starting the kernel
- Megi's 5.6 kernel

To...
- the upstream Fedora 33 repository
- EFI boot (with GRUB! just like your desktop!)
- upstream 5.7 kernel with selected (still necessary) patches

Currently, almost all the packages we need are in Fedora 33, and I have a working kernel build. Once EFI is figured out, I should have another image uploaded.

I look  forward to your next release,
but
I hope that will be an easier to work/flash download file ?

Thanks for the work. Awesome, I use Fedora for all my systems and look forward to use it on the phone. I might start assisting in the future if my spare-time allows
