Early community images for H3, H6 and A64

    • Official Post

    All SD card images are rebuilt (again) and fresh update files are available. This is mostly bug fixing release.


    - Dropped support for boards with less than 1 GiB of RAM (OrangePi Lite and One)

    - Restored addon repository

    - HDMI CEC should work well now on all boards

    - Fix issue with monitors which have native resolution bigger than 1920x1080 (FullHD) but less than 3840x2160 (4K). You have to burn clean image to SD card for this one.

    - Kernel configuration optimization. Some operations should be faster now, like accessing USB storage (UASP instead of USB mass storage), if hardware supports it.

  • New image work on RPi one plus, but built-in ethernet card not working and display resolution 1024x768, other resolutions not working

    but built-in ethernet card not working and display resolution 1024x768, other resolutions not working

    That's expected, at least for resolution part. Issue is that OrangePi One Plus need additional regulator to be enabled in order to correctly read EDID. But since I don't have any OrangePi with H6, I won't do any blind experiments. Just wait until I receive one.

  • aggggrs what can i do whith my orange pi one now..........

    Please read previous post. OrangePi Lite is not supported anymore due to insufficient amount of RAM (less than 1 GiB). Even if I would help you with building the image, you would experience crashes (mentioned by other users, I never tested it myself).

    i have an nano pi m1 board and there was not any image file for it...!

    i use the LibreELEC-H3.arm-9.1-devel-20190321182613-2411a9e-orangepi_lite.img (i downloaded it in 12 hours ago but don't exist it in server now :))

    when i use orange pi lite image file it work on my board (i didn't fully test it and i only played a movie and a mp3 file! and it worked)

    i don't want to have a full media center!

    i only want to use LibreElec for another project and i want to change kodi and create a new program for another purpose (but i need to play movie and music) so i want to understand how it compile and how it work!

    and maybe i will change my nanopi m1 device in future! (it's not important witch board! but i only have nanopi m1 now and i have to work with this :( so i should test my program with nanopi m1)

    but now i need to learn how compile LibreElec for a board (Preferred OrangePI Lite)

    do you can Introduce some site for my purpose? or explain it yourself?

    thank you :)

  • If you already have working setup, you can still use updates or you can use old OpenELEC. It should still work reasonably well, just everything would be old.

    I now you was working in the last functional OpenElec version for orangePi, but now the mirrors are down :(

    you can build images with command like PROJECT=Allwinner ARCH=arm DEVICE=H3 UBOOT_SYSTEM=orangepi_pc make image,

    where orangepi_pc is board taken from LibreELEC.tv/uboot_helper at allwinner · LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub

    Actually, you can re-introduce OrangePi Lite support just by adding correct line in uboot_helper mentioned above.

    Other than that, I would suggest you that you read build scripts. If you want to make anything useful, you have to understand them any way. At least I started that way. Build system also contains documentation which explains what various package variables mean.

    BTW, there is NanoPi M1 variant with 1 GiB of RAM, so I could add it in next release if you wish. But until now nobody expressed any interest.
