Update LibreELEC 9.2.3 on Raspberry Pi 3 and BLACK SCREEN on boot now

  • I had LibreELEC 9.2.1 on Raspberry Pi 3 without any hardware or software modifications.

    I make update to 9.2.3 (copy .img.gz to Update folder and reboot).

    I have BLACK SCREEN on boot now.


    How can I downgrade to 9.2.1?

    9.2.3 is not working on RP 3.


    P.S. I downloaded LibreELEC-RPi2.arm-9.0.2.img.gz.

    Then upgrade to 9.2.1 and RP is working well.

  • I did the same update by using the GUI, and it works fine on my RPi 3B+.

    Why don't you use the GUI to update?


    PS: Maybe the image you copied into the update folder is bad. The update process should work the same like on using the GUI. So download an image again (9.2.1 or 9.2.3) and try to boot again.

  • GUI update is not working.

    I can see new version (9.2.3), select it and then I see blink and nothing.

    Then something is wrong with your installation. Maybe your microSD card is bad. Format your card, check it for errors, then do a fresh LE installation.

    I tried fresh install 9.2.3 by format SD and write 9.2.3 image.

    The result is the same (no boot, black screen).

    9.2.3 is not working on RP 3.


    I returned to 9.2.1. This version is working well and I will stay on it.

  • Thanks for the info. So you're using RPi 3B without the "plus", correct?

    Yes. First RP3.

  • Please try to replace the firmware files on the FAT partition of a LE 9.2.3 installation with the ones from this ZIP rpi-firmware-9e3c23c.zip - you can do that eg on a windows (or linux/mac) PC.

    It's a rather rare issue on RPi3s, but it's the reason why we haven't enabled auto-update to 9.2.3 yet. LE 9.2.4 will ship with the same firmware files as the one in the ZIP - so far this fixed all RPi3 boot issues.


    so long,

  • I can confirm it's working.

    Thank you Hias.

  • Just a question: Where the hell the update folder is?


    I'm trying to upgrade from 8.2.5 to 9.0.2 on an ODROID C2 but I do not find this folder using the Kodi File Manager.

  • Papalapa Login by SSH, go into the folder by cd /storage/.update and download the file by wget <URL> .
