Posted by LibreELEC on September 26, 2016 · 3 mins read

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.006 containing Kodi v17.0-beta2. The Kodi developers are still submitting changes in volume so our current plan is to hold in Alpha until Kodi reaches RC1. The iMX6 build is not currently available as testing has not completed. Changes in v7.90.006 include:

  • Fix kmsg text before boot splash on Odroid C2
  • Fix advancedsettings.xml options on WeTek Hub/Core/Play
