    Ok. I guess it's not that complicated. I installed 9.2.0 (official) on nano Pi M4. Just needed to find the right version.

    I used: LibreELEC-RK3399.arm-9.2.0-rockpro64.img from LibreElec and any current rk3399-rockpro64.dtb to fix the WiFi appears to work.


    This image is for another model. Its launch before (without additional settings), you can consider a lucky coincidence. You can try changing the settings and check the startup to M4.

    There are several options for LE images that you may be able to run on try your M4. See this topic, earlier posts. There is information on how to configure and verify the launch of LE on the T4 (this principle is suitable for tuning and M4). There is no guarantee that this will work for you.

    Ok. I will just use the 8 then. Thank you.

    So is there not a .img file lIBREeLEC for the M4 that is all complete and tested that is 9 yet? The one on Rockchip – LibreELEC PINE64 RockPro64

    LibreELEC-RK3399.arm-9.2.0-rockpro64.img.gz won't load. I don't know why.

    The legacy one PINE64 RockPro64 LibreELEC-RK3399.arm-8.90.015-rockpro64.img.gz works fine.

    Any ideas? I don't know what (if any) benefit the 9 has over that 8 that the M4 would benefit from.

    Friendly Arm has downloads here:

    But I don't find any that are the LibreElec? Anyone know the right one to load?

    Thank you.

    Greetings to all,

    I hope you are all enjoying your Nano Pi's. Here is an update on my hardware. Nothing more has changed from my past post except that instead of a 40mm 12v fan, I ordered a 45mm 5v fan. This draws the temps out a tab better. I also ordered 2.6mm aluminum spacers to raise the top to allow the hot air escape. Great little setup! Have a great evening!

    How do you update the existing LibreELEC to the new version without losing everything already installed? I'm still new and want to update but don't want to install everything again.

    Thank you.

    When I did my tests there was nothing above 1920x1080 to select. So yes this is likely a LibreELEC limitation? It did not exist in Kodi either. Maybe this board is not really 4K although it can play 4K it's not a true 4K?

    Can i please ask you to test it connected to a 4K display? If go into settings -> Display, what options are whitelisted and what resolution options can you select?

    So here is what I found when I connected the NanoPi M4 directly via HDMI to a Hisense 55" 4K HDR TV using LibreELEC.

    Using Netflix, played "Golden Eye" that is stated as 1080p by Netflix. In the player's settings, Kodi, I can select 1920x1080 50/60 Hz, and 1280x720 50/60 Hz only.

    Here is what you wanted to know specifically; In LibreELEC, Display> Settings, I can see and select all the display settings and all the different Hz's, 1920x1080, 1280x720 etc. with each of 50/60 Hz. I also can see all the displays resolutions in the white list also, ie: 1920x1080, 1280x720 etc. with each of 50/60 Hz value.

    Hope that helps.

    Nice work, what build are you using? Are you plugged in to a 4K display? once i get the native 4k @ 60Hz working, ill start testing Audio and Video findings.

    Build from this thread. The nightly build one? 20190227, they all seem to work one way or another. Don't bother with anything from here: Rockchip – LibreELEC it will all crash and fail sooner or later. For me it was sooner. Tested on a slow 8GB card to see and got three recovery failed boots and lost everything three times in a row. So don't bother until there is a true release.

    Not on a 4K yet cause I'm still configuring it, but I have played 4K video with no issues via YouTube. I have a 4K TV and eventually will connect to just play, but the true reason for this build is to connect to a projector for projecting onto a 90" screen.

    Only issue I have is (was - see below) the Wi-Fi will not stay on after a shut down/reboot. Sometimes it's on and sometimes it's not connected. I have to go to settings and flip it off then off again to make it work. I know there was a post to put the file dtb somewhere but I can't understand how?!

    It was posted:

    Because the WiFi adapter is not always recognized, I have under

    /storage/.config/modules-load.d/ a file bcmdhd.conf created with the following content:


    So WiFi starts without delay.

    Huh where? HELP??!!

    Update: I think I figured it out. I found the folder, and created a file there called bcmdhd.conf with notepad and only put in "bcmdhd" and rebooted a few times and the Wi-Fi seems to work now?! Yeeay. I also put the file rk3399-rockpro64.dtb in that directory, not sure it it was needed or not but it seems to work now. I was going crazy trying to figure out why I can't stream anything thinking it was that plugin like Netflix or Crackle etc. Thank you Jerry Penguin for your post. You have my NanoPi M4 working sweetly!

    Well I figure out how to get it installed. It's part of the install of the Netflix. Yeay I have Netflix now working!

    For everyone else, here is my NanoPi M4 happy in an aluminum anidees case. I like it a lot, unlike the one recommended as it's open with no protection. The anidees is VERY well made and fits it perfectly. I just needed to make it work but it was easy.

    What I did/used:

    1. 3 pure copper plates on top of the processor with thermo tape and thermo tape on the inside bottom of the case so the CPU is using the case as a heat-sink just like the Flirc.

    2. 12v fan right on top of the board to get the temps even lower and the temps after 3 hours of running never go above 135 F. I've seen 140 F spikes but they go back down to 135 F under a minute.

    3. Added 2.5 mm aluminum spacers under each screw on the top acrylic top to allow the hot air to escape.

    4. Raspberry Pi heat-sinks on the memory chips and the USB 3.0 chip. Not sure if they are needed but I added them.

    5. Using a Rii remote also to control everything-works perfectly.

    I think the NanoPi M4 is happy in the case. I really like this board!

    Greetings Jerry,

    So I got everything working except one thing. When I go to Add-ons >Install from LibreELEC repository> LibreELEC Add-ons says it can't be launched. I'm trying to install the InputStream.Adaptive driver. Can anyone help? I need this for Netflix.

    Thank you.

    Greetings Jerry,

    Thank you! I was not aware the NanoPi M4 was same as NanoPC T4.

    Thank you for that info!



    I am new here and this is my first post (apologies upfront). I am tad confused in what are the exact steps if one has the NanoPi M4? Can someone clarify what is the proper working LibreELEC to install that has everything working?

    Thank you kindly!
