Many of you have reported that the current UEFI based images for 
Raspberry Pi 4B are harder to use than typical disk images as they 
require a separate disk to hold UEFI firmware. So, in addition to 
existing generic UEFI based images, we are now building and recommending 
an image specifically for Raspberry Pis.

  - This image is 64-bit using the arm64 architecture.

  - Single image works for multiple boards. Raspberry Pi 3B, Raspberry 
Pi 3B+ and Raspberry Pi 4B have been tested.

  - It works like a regular disk image. Writing to SD card using a disk 
imaging tool and just boot. Booting from USB disk is expected to work if 
the board supports booting from USB.

  - It contains the Raspberry Pi boot firmware and Wi-Fi firmware. A 
Wi-Fi network is automatically configured and makes it easy to find and 
configure FreedomBox.

Many thanks to James Valleroy for adding the support for this.
