I have an H3 board (BananaPi M2+) and I was wondering, will it run Kodi 18?
I know the Allwinner boards are a little temperamental and some only work with Kodi 19, but I saw an old forum with an Openelec image with Kodi 16, so I thought there might be a chance? Does anyone have any experience with this device? Will building LE 9.2 work for it?
Openelec uses the Allwinner BSP kernel, based on Linux 3.x with many binary only drivers, whereas LE uses the current mainline Linux kernel, without any non free components. Both are thus not at all comparable.
I suppose that it should be possible porting an older Kodi to the current kernel and LE environment, but I doubt any developer has any interest in such an experiment, so you would most likely end up on your own.
