LibreELEC (Leia) 9.2.4

  • Source: LibreELEC (Leia) 9.2.4 – LibreELEC

  • I have just upgraded to LibreELEC 9.2.4 from 9.2.3 on an RPi4-4.

    The RPi4 Firmware and EEPROM are unchanged:

    Bootloader EEPROM (up to date: 2020-04-16)

    VIA USB3 Firmware (up to date: 000137ad)

    Are these the latest stable releases (no changes)?


    Should they be automatically updated, or do I have to download / install something?

    I set each switch to ON and re-booted in turn and nothing updated.


    If there is a link to how to do this manually, please point me to it.


    Thank you to all for the hard work. Especially with all the RPi4 frustrations.

  • See Point 11 in 1st post of milhouse kodi forum thread for recent Matrix Kodi 19 testbuilds, as this provides explanation of Critical, Stable and Beta Bootloader and usb3 firmware, along with explanation on how to apply updates via Libreelec settings option and/or manually at own risk etc.


    Obviously take care and do not modify if not sure what your doing etc. (not used myself)

  • Thanks for that, I'll take a look.

    I thought I saw that Firmware and EEPROM had been updated when comparing 9.2.3 with 9.2.4 on GitHub. I am not a developer and may have misunderstood.


    Thanks again.

  • ssh in as root and


    Code
    FIRMWARE_RELEASE_STATUS=stable rpi-eeprom-update -a


    Then reboot.


    Problem solved.


    Cheers,


    Phil

  • Thank you both. All is now perfectly clear.

  • I searched around for a place to put this but, here it is.


    I just upgraded from 9.2.3 to 9.2.4 and one thing I have noticed is with un-copyrighted DVDs, it plays normally. However, if you push X to stop and get out of the DVD, the screen will freeze and kodi.bin has to be killed to get back screen control. I don't know if it is safe to downgrade to 9.2.3

  • on 9.2.4 (RPi4) the picture disappeared, while there is sound and hdmi cec works fine, I hear how the system reacts to pressing the remote control key, but I see nothing. The TV itself thinks that it is being given a signal, writes that it is there and writes the resolution, but the picture is just black. Changing the hdmi port doesn't help. This also happens when upgrading from 9.2.3 and during a clean install.

    Can you please try if this build works LibreELEC-RPi4.arm-9.2-devel-20200817130411-96056bf.tar ?


    Just copy it to the Update Windows share and then reboot.

  • I have left mine on (pi xero) and it never updates,

    'Never' would be a bit odd... But the auto-update for 9.2.4 has not yet been enabled.


    Apparently something is off on the RPi4 release. 9.2.5 for the RPi4 is in the making.

    Testing is ongoing, and once it feels okay, the auto-updated will be re-enabled.

  • Only change in 9.2.5 compared to 9.2.4 is the RPi4 firmware change - both use Kodi Leia 18.8 and we'll release 9.2.5 only for RPi4.


    so long,
