The eros project has long since been abandoned, and ROS DiamondBack has been EOL for many years now.

Depending on your platform, you have several options to use ROS on ARM devices: you could follow the indigo/Installation/UbuntuARM install guide, or the BeagleBone and/or the bmwcarit/meta-ros (using OpenEmbedded) or attempt a from-source cross-compile yourself.

If at all possible, I'd use the pre-built debians and Ubuntu for ARM, as it reduces the effort required to get ROS on ARM significantly. Of course, whether you can do this depends on your actual hardware.
