Raspberry pi zero doesn't boot w libreelec

  • hi,

    first of all i formated the 16GB sd card before i use it with sd-formater

    i slide the sd card in to my sd card slot on my notebook and start the sd card creator, copy LibreELEC-RPi.arm-8.0.2.img

    when finished i press and slide the sd card out of my notebook sd card slot. and slide and push it into my raspberry pi zero w. sd card slot. apply power into it and nothing happen. have already repeated these procedure twice.

    do i do something wrong here? and when i used my original sd card from PiHUT, it's work nicely.

    kind regards,


  • Wrote exactly what you did with Creator app. What did you copy? Image? You need to write image to it.

    Done giving support here because of last events.

  • You mean you copied this file to SD card or you wrote it with Creator app (step #4)?

    Done giving support here because of last events.

  • yeap i've copied the LibreELEC-RPi.arm-8.0.2.img.gz file to the sd cards, using the sd card creator

  • You shouldn't need to create things twice (as Iridium describes) but not "ejecting" the SD card before removing will result in an unclean filesystem and Linux frequently refuses to boot from unclean filesystems.
