LibreELEC (Jarvis) v7.0.3 MR

LibreELEC (Jarvis) v7.0.3 MR is a minor update bringing “armchair upgrades” to the settings add-on, firmware support for the BCM2837 based Raspberry Pi 2B+ and drivers for the new Hifiberry Digi+ Pro card. Fixes for Kodi Jarvis stopped after our v7.0.2 release in June so there are no Kodi changes, and the developer team has been focussed on Krypton for some time so we do not want to introduce new issues at this late stage in the Jarvis lifecycle by forcing major OS changes. Add-on updates for 7.0 releases will continue (if add-on maintainers submit changes) but 7.0.3 MR is the final LibreELEC 7.0 release....

LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.010 ALPHA

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.010 containing Kodi v17.0-beta7 and a few package updates as this will be the final alpha build before we start beta. We have moved up to the Linux 4.9 kernel and have resolved a number of longer-running bugs. Changes in v7.90.010 include: Fix power-on function for the WeTek Hub remote Fix CEC support on WeTek Play and WeTek Core Fix screensaver activation when Bluetooth devices are connected Update to Linux 4.9.0 kernel for Generic and Raspberry Pi Update to Linux support patches for Raspberry Pi Updates to Linux 3.14 kernel for Amlogic aarch64...

LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.009 ALPHA

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.009 containing Kodi v17.0-beta6 with a major “look and feel” overhaul to Estuary, the new default Krypton skin. The revised version known as Estuary v2 has more visual depth (is not as flat in appearance) and should be less of a visual shock for users making the switch from Kodi Jarvis/Confluence. Favourites have now been promoted to a main menu item and fanart is more visible than Estuary v1 when browsing in library views. We think it looks great and offer our congratulations! to the Kodi skinning team. Kodi v17-beta6 also refreshes the Kodi web...

LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.008 ALPHA

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...

LibreELEC USB-SD Creator v1.2

LibreELEC USB-SD Creator v1.2 is released with initial support for right-to-left GUI localisation in Farsi (Persian) and Hebrew, the addition of Lithuanian and Asturian translations, fixes for writing to mmc devices, use behind a proxy server, and other minor issues seen on macOS sierra and Linux since v1.1. The project team are really happy with the positive reviews the USB-SD Creator app is receiving in blog posts and social media, and website stats show app downloads/week now exceed the number of direct .img file downloads. It’s another little reason fuelling rapid growth in our active-install numbers. If you would like to see a language added...

LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.007 ALPHA

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.007 containing Kodi v17.0-beta3 which is starting to focus less on big changes and more on bug fixing. Amlogic audio also makes a leap forwards thanks to @kwiboo and @longchair from the RasPlex and Plex Inc. teams completing Amlogic kernel changes that allow hardware auto-detection capabilities in Kodi to “just work” without hacks. The LibreELEC settings add-on now has a function to submit essential log files to a paste website and display the URL shortcode. This allows less experienced users to demonstrate an issue and share logs with developers without learning SSH and Linux terminal commands first. Original credit belongs to...
