LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.005 ALPHA

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.005 which is now available for all build projects. It contains Kodi v17.0-beta1 code, so yes, upstream Kodi has entered Beta while we remain in Alpha. Krypton for Intel/AMD x86 and Raspberry Pi devices is solid while iMX6 and Amlogic device support has progressed, but falls short of where we’d like to be for Beta. The changes in v7.90.005 include: Fix support for 5GHz networks on Realtek 8812au wireless devices Fix inclusion of distro specific config.txt on Raspberry Pi devices Fix installer USB/SD label to ‘LIBREELEC’ instead of random text Update to Kodi v17.0 beta 1 Update...

LibreELEC USB-SD Creator!

An easy to use application to create bootable USB and SD card installation media has been on the staff wish-list for a long long time, so we are delighted to reveal the official “LibreELEC USB-SD Creator” app for Linux, macOS and Windows. The app has four clearly marked steps to guide you through downloading the latest official LibreELEC image for your hardware and writing it to removable media, and checking “show all” enables selection of previous releases and current Alpha/Beta preview builds. You can also load a local image file, allowing the app to be used with previously downloaded images, or development and community created images that...

LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.004 ALPHA

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.004 which is now available for all build projects. Krypton support for imx6, WeTek Play/Core and various Amlogic devices is still being refined so do not expect perfection: we need our supporting community builders and code contributors to  refocus their efforts from improving Jarvis to improving Krypton. The changes in v7.90.004 include: Fix IR auto-repeat on many remotes Fix use of custom remote.conf files Fix /flash and /system unmount messages at shutdown Fix use of freetype in lcdproc Fix use S/PDIF passthrough on imx6 Fix typos in the imx6 update script Fix logic of NAND...

Pirates Ahoy

In the last week we started to block specific accounts associated with add-on repos and “builds” that promote access to pirate content from following us, messaging us, tagging us in photo’s etc. on social sites like Facebook, Google+, Twitter, YouTube. We did this because piracy is not a fun, crazy or cool thing. If you associate us with pirate add-ons, builds and services, or the resellers and manufacturers who pre-load them, it harms our name and reputation. Kodi maintains a list of known piracy add-ons. It is never comprehensive as pirate sites change, add-ons and builds die frequently, new ones appear. If...

LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.003 ALPHA

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.003 which is now available for Generic x86_64 hardware and Raspberry Pi devices. The Amlogic changes in Kodi VideoPlayer are still not at the point where we want larger-scale testing (and bug reporting) from WeTek Play/Core and Odroid C2 users so we continue to hold those builds. The changes in v7.90.003 include: Fix an issue where journald logs were wiped on RPi due to time/NTP changes Fix an issue with updating from .img.gz on WP/WC block device storage Fix an issue with mtools creating corrupt directories in installer images Fix an machine-id issue when /storage/.cache...
