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...

LibreELEC (Jarvis) v7.0.2 MR

The v7.0.2 maintenance release has a strong Raspberry flavour with firmware and Kodi updates to resolve minor Pi issues and a bootloop with the Xperience1080 skin. There are also tweaks to polish the “noobs” experience as the Raspberry Pi Foundation now includes LibreELEC in the list of distributions available via noobs and their downloads page. If you are not using Pi hardware this is a minor update as there have been few reports of things to fix. v7.0.2 changes include: Fix an issue where journald logs were wiped on RPi due to time/NTP changes Fix an issue where Kodi skins with no cursor...
