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...

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview builds continue with v7.90.006 containing Kodi v17.0-beta2.

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...
