    HOW-TO:Installing OpenELEC/Writing The Disk Image - OpenELEC

    Extracting the archive using the GUI

    Just open the folder where you downloaded the file, find the OpenELEC-build-architecture-version.img.gz file, right-click on it and select 'Extract Files...'.

    Extracting the archive using the CLI (Command Line Interface)

    Each distro has a different way of getting to the Terminal however it is usually called something like Terminal or Term. On Ubuntu it can be found in the Applications menu.

    Change to the folder where you downloaded the release archive to (let's assume the Downloads folder in your home directory):

    1. cd ~/Downloads

    Then extract the archive. It will be named OpenELEC-build-architecture-version.img.gz. We need to use gunzip to extract the archive.

    1. gunzip -d OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-6.0.0.img.gz

    Creating the USB Stick

    Now pop your USB Stick in. After you've inserted the USB Stick use dmesg | tail to find out what /dev/device it is. It should be something like /dev/sdX).

    You can also use parted or fdisk

    1. parted -l
    1. Disk /dev/sdb: 1016MB
    2. Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
    3. Partition Table: msdos
    4. Disk Flags:
    5. Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 1049kB 1015MB 1015MB primary ext4

    First make sure the disk is unmounted

    1. umount /dev/sdb1

    Next we need to write the disk image. You'll need superuser privileges to do this, whether you use the root user or sudo. Either way, you need to execute the following command:

    1. sudo dd if=OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-6.0.0.img of=/dev/sdb bs=4M

    I don`t will install or use the LibreELEC.USB-SD.Creator.Linux-64bit.bin.

    My solution:

    1. sudo dd if=LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-8.0.2.img of=/dev/sdb bs=4M && sync

  • Without gunzipping first

    1. gunzip -c LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-8.0.2.img.gz | dd of=/dev/sdX conv=fsync

    Done giving support here because of last events.
