    Support for that just landed and it will be in tomorrow nightly image. However, it's unreliable on my Beelink X2, but it works just fine on other boards. Please test it on your X2. I have problematic version of that box (hard to boot from SD card), so chances are that it will work reliably on non-problematic.

    Cool will test it, didn't use the X2 in a while updates shouldn't be a problem if the last update is a couple of months ago i suppose?

    The Beelink devs have no more/less of a clue what the issue could be as anyone else. I've looked at their boot sources (with git history) and there's no smoking gun; the sources have the same Amlogic BSP baseline that Khadas and Hardkernel use with fairly minimal hacking to account for the normal things that are different between board vendors. I've also had them ship samples to people with the skills to hopefully figure the issue out, but those folks are full-time developers and we're asking them to investigate our weird problem for $free, so we'll have to be patient until they have some time to spare. I see "Beelink doesn't care" as a wrong statement. If they didn't care they wouldn't courier $240 products to people, or provide schematics and sources to developers who haven't signed an NDA, to help customers run an OS they don't ship and don't support.

    Great to hear there's support by beelink above any level I'd expect from a TV box manufacturer.


    Thanks chewitt for your great efforts, mainly behind the scenes!

    I think SSH needs to be activated and a PW set via the remote control before use?!

    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.

    The last images for H6 Orange PI3, I get stuck. As if they go to standby after the TV is turned off and they don't restart. I have to unplug the power. I also tried to change the HDMI CEC settings. But it won't restart.

    There is no power management, once the CPU is shut down there is no way to start it again, without a power cycle. Unfortunately there is no usable implementation of the crust fw yet.

    script.bin is in mainline replaced by the dtb, the device tree blob, not being an expert, I suppose it should be possible.


    I just tested libreelec on the orange pi 3 and it is wonderful.

    The problem is that I have not managed to install a frontend or make the emulationstation work,

    retroarch or zack morris ...

    Could someone help me install it on the kodi ??

    I just updated my board yesterday after a long time and realised at the moment many as ddons are not compiled, so maybe you have to wait acouple of weeks, or try compiling by yourself...

    Guys, I'm considering removing A20 support from master branch

    sad to hear, but I guess the strength of the A20 in 2020 is the native SATA port, not a main driver for LE.


    So switching to a H3 or H6 makes sense.


    Just as a side note the battery of my inet f97ii nearly blew up, my tablet got split in two parts and the batt was like a cussion. Thank god nothing happened.


    Just to be aware of ageing cheap lipo cells.

    Hi Jernej! I am testing (using) your image and nightly updates for the whole summer on my Orange Pi Plus 2e. What I still don't understand is some sort of pretty heavy video lagging when navigating the menus while there is video playing at the background. I hoped that some nightly images would solve this issue but I have installed many of them till the current version and that lagging is still present, unfortunately.

    Perhaps this is just due to the board's CPU/GPU limitations (too weak for Kodi 19/LibreELEC 9) and that would be never solved on these boards? Could you tell me some words about this issue, please? Thanks for your great work!

    I had a similar lag and got pointed to the requirement of the tv refreshrate being twice the video refresh rate, so better 1080p60 than 4k30. I guess it was in the hw deinterlacer thread

    I realise now that there are no official aarch64 builds. I tried to build for the Allwinner A20 device and it failed (though for a different reason). Something is off with the `gdb` configuration when building for rpi4 aarch64 which makes linking fail.


    I notice that there _are_ aarch64 configs for some other platforms (e.g. Allwinner A20). I've not tried them all but do any work?


    Was the build system created for LibreELEC or is it taken from somewhere else?

    Allwinner A20 is 32 bit, H5, H6 and A64 are 64 bit

    Dear Chewitt,


    Thanks for your review, i know according to README.md it's not ready for production use yet, anyway i tested the AP mode working well too.

    I recently read about a wifi card from some other manufacturer which comes with a gpl source drop, and this wifi card seems to use the same ip as the xradio and the sources seem to be in a better shape than the Allwinner driver. But as I don't have such a wifi card i didn't pay any attention and don't remember where I've seen this, sorry...
