LibreELEC on berryboot
#1
Question 
I get LibreELEC_7.0.2 not convert to squashfs to update it, since in berryboot only appears the version 7.0.1
I tried to change it but only get a picture of 4.1kb
I've also tried downloading the .tar of noobs, remove it and pass it to .img but when I start with berryboot tells me it's not squashfs [Image: sad.png]
Any other way?
Can anyone give it to me? [Image: huh.png]
Thank you

Just run LE without that berryboot/noobs crap and you can use the build in updater.

To keep things simple: Either you install LibreELEC onto your RPi device directly (without the BerryBoot system), or you need to wait until Berryboot offers the next LibreELEC version.

Ok, I think that Berryboot isn't a crap as others said.
I'll tell you how to update LibreELEC to the latest version.
Acording to Berryboot code, already working with OpenELEC, you have to copy SYSTEM file from inside the update .tar into /storage/.update.
Then, at next reboot, Berryboot will find this image and replace its own with this new one before mounting it and booting.
The result is a new version of LibreELEC with the aplied changes that you already made to the previous versions.
This can be done because LibreELEC as well as it predecesor OpenELEC is distributed on a squashfs archive, the same that Berryboot relies on.
The only flaw I found to this method is that you can't apply this kind of update to a restored backup of LibreELEC because when you do it, the main image becomes the restored backup and includes LibreELEC with all changed you made to your system. So, if after restoring a backup you update LibreELEC with this method you will be overwriting your customizations with a blank LibreELEC image and will lose your config.
I hope you understand my poor english writing. Sorry for that.
Cheers...
