I am deploying quite a lot LibreElecs on Raspis for the neighborhood.
Therefor I have created a "master config", made a backup and if somebody install this, everything is fine (ok, not everything, libreelec tends to set its own hostname, but my dhcp server is stronger and overwrites those duplicates).
The problem is that if you give them an SD Card with the image and the tar file, they have to do quite a lot steps (in the wrong language, with the wrong skin and so on) until they are able to restore the tar file from the /flash folder. And most of them do not speak english at all. So usually I have them hanging on the phone/chat soon after they've got the new SD Card and inserted it.
Is there a simple way to automate this?
Of course, I could find a way to create my own image which includes the settings / addons that I need, but I like to stick with the "stock image" and keep my stuff seperated. (but I also do want to stop those evil phonecalls "What do I have to click next ?"
I've tried to put the tar remotely into the "update" folder, but it is rejected ("no kernel found..."). Thats ok, but it was worth a try
