LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.008 ALPHA

Posted by LibreELEC on October 31, 2016 · 3 mins read

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.008 containing Kodi v17.0-beta5 which is focussed on bug fixing (including a major bug in v17b4 which is why we skipped it). This release also uses the Linux 4.8 kernel which is our intended kernel for the lifetime of v8.0 builds.

Changes in v7.90.008 include:

  • Fix Amlogic default audio device patch to allow external USB audio devices
  • Fix sshd config and remove user/group permisssion hacks on /storage
  • Fix connman so verbose output does not show buildserver paths
  • Fix Generic build installer visual issues and remove unused menu options
  • Fix ffmpeg issues connecting to TLS 1.2 streams
  • Fix vmware and vbox driver support for Virtual
  • Update Samba configuration to improve performance and interoperability
  • Update main nVidia driver to 367.57
  • Update Linux kernel to 4.8.4
  • Update Kodi to v17-beta5
  • Update Raspberry Pi support patches for Linux/Kodi
  • Update (align) Linux kernel configurations of various S905 devices
  • Add support for DRI3 on Intel GPUs to resolve tearing in Tiger VNC
  • Add support for PL2303 USB serial devices to Odroid_C2

In this build lcdproc configuration has been moved from LibreELEC settings to an installable add-on which can be found in the LibreELEC 8.0 add-on repo.


LibreELEC operates a 24-hour ‘canary’ period between release files being posted for download and the release being available via auto-update. During this time Krypton users can update manually using the LibreELEC settings add-on. Jarvis users can update using the older .tar file method.
