I'm not very familiar with the Pandora, but as far as I know ARM is
pretty good about backward compatibility. You should be able to run
ARM code compiled by LLVM on it. LLVM currently only generates code
for version 6 of the ARM architecture, so you wouldn't be taking full
advantage of the Pandora's processor but it may not matter, depending
on what you're trying to do with it.
If you are able to try out LLVM for ARM, we would welcome your
feedback and contributions!
