1. This thread is for discussion of LibreELEC images created by myself. If you prefer to use another OS, please keep discussion about that OS in other forums. Off-topic posts about other OS will be deleted to moved to other threads.
2. LibreELEC (and Armbian) use a different u-boot configuration from CE. If you want to switch between distros you will need to clear the stored u-boot configuration first. The mainline kernel does not allow access to the u-boot environment from userspace, so this is easiest done by restoring the original firmware of the device using Amlogic "USB Burn Tool" software. If using CE or other distros that still use the legacy (vendor) u-boot the u-boot environment can be cleared from within the OS before switching.
I'm not interested in "opinions" about which system is better or worse. Want to discuss it - create your own theme.

I'm not going to persuade anyone to use any system. Everyone decides what to use.
Test images LibreELEC KODI-19 for platform Amlogic S9xxx
To start the system from external media, you must use a universal multi-boot. This variant of multi-loading system is fully compatible with Armbian etc systems for TV boxes. If it is already activated with the previous images, you do not need to repeat the activation.
