    Seems you didn't read forum good enough. No one is abandoning those "old" boxes. But from what I read they just works so there is no much development like with N2 which is new device.

    Perhaps I am lacking in reading comprehension. Here is a clip-it of the statement I made earlier that you are quoting " But THEY are starting to take an attitude with anyone that wants to purchase a cheap Chinese box with the new Amlogic S922 SoC. They are implying that if you don't purchase the Odroid N2 (which they received FREE), they won't support those boxes." From my reading on the CoreELEC forum, I got the impression, that they WILL NOT support any of those new CHEAP CHINESE BOXES with the new Amlogic S922 SoC's.


    Hopefully, I will be receiving one of the new ** Beelink GT-K (King) Amlogic S922X Quad-core ARM Cortex-A73 and dual-core ARM Cortex-A53 ** boxes, and it should have an UNLOCKED bootloader. However, from my reading, NO one will be supporting that device from either LibreELEC OR CoreELEC.


    Please correct me if I am wrong.....

    Exactly my point. Time to move on.

    I am a dumb ex-LibreELEC user, who migrated to CoreELEC because of the impression that LibreELEC was kicking us people with these "cheap Chinese boxes" to the curb, whereas the CoreELEC folks welcomed us to their fold. I started several years ago, with OpenELEC Android port by Kszaq. I followed him to this forum and have used LibreELEC for quite awhile, but got the impression we users of these "cheap Chinese Android boxes" were not welcome anymore.


    The comments from your member "chewitt", always irritated me, even though they were never directed toward me. His negative, aggressive, attitude toward others, really got under my skin.


    I don't know why, but I still read this forum daily, mostly for post from Bables150. I also read the CoreELEC forum, but not much there. But THEY are starting to take an attitude with anyone that wants to purchase a cheap Chinese box with the new Amlogic S922 SoC. They are implying that if you don't purchase the Odroid N2 (which they received FREE), they won't support those boxes. In my humble opinion, that will be a terrible mistake, same as LibreELEC made.


    Today's boxes are getting to the point of not needing LibreELEC OR CoreELEC. The Nvidia Shield can do just about everything these ports can do, except 10 times more. I have already retired some of my OpenELEC, LibreELEC AND CoreELEC cheap Chinese boxes.


    This is just my 2 cents.

    I can read fine, maybe you should learn some humility rather than being arrogant and hostile with users.

    Balbes150 has created numerous projects, that have breathed new life into a lot of older AND newer Chinese Android boxes. I run Linux and LibreELEC on different boxes that he gave support to. Without his endeavors and genius, most of my "cheap" boxes would be in the trash bin, instead they are very useful, now that Balbes has created OS's for them..

    One of the files that I uploaded is the LibreELEC tar file. You can burn that tar file to a microSD card using either Etcher, or Rufus. Inset the card, and depress the reset button with a paper clip as you apply power to your device. Been two or three years since I used that stick, so my instructions may be missing some items..........


    Perhaps others on here can give you better instructions.........


    Here is my video that I made almost 4 years ago about this stick running OpenELEC, I believe... I am not sure if I just used the TAR file to upgrade to LibreELEC, or I did a clean install.

    Which OS is better and works without problems?

    I would like to try OpenELEC or LibreELEC.

    I want OS to boot from SD or USB.

    Which version of android do you have?

    That would depend upon your usage. My stick has been retired for two or three years, I don't even remember what OS it is running. I used it mainly as my Tvheadend DVR server, not even connected to a TV.


    I will post all the files that I show in that pic, and you can try each one.

    I gave up on trying to get my Windows 10 computer to be recognized by Kodi running under LibreELEC or CoreELEC, so I connected my HDD to my Asus router that has a native USB3 port. Now everything JUST works. Of course Linux does not suffer from any of the Windows issues, IT JUST work.


    Got tired of jumping through hoops just to get an external HDD connected a Windows computer, to be recognized by Kodi.

    Klojum, I ran into exactly what you are saying a few days ago, Windows is horrible for sharing the network. I have always used a NAS for my storage and LibreELEC NEVER had an issue finding my files. However, I purchased a separate powered external HDD, to store some media files, and attached it to one of my Windows 10 microPCs, then the fun began. I ended up attaching my HDD to my Asus router, which has a gigabit connection.


    But, as you stated, Linux does NOT have those issues........... Linux SEES everything on the network.

    I've just bought a Mecool M8S Pro + and would like to 'dual boot' it to LibreElec. Does anyone know how I could accomplish this?

    Thanks in anticipation.?(

    Will this help?? The process the process will be the same, you just have to get the correct device tree for your device. Of course there are other methods also.
