    I would avoid them.

    That's right, for those who do not know how to configure this system, it is not necessary to use it.

    PS I have already received the necessary information from experienced M4 users with confirmation that they, with the correct setup, everything works.

    Tried the latest image (20191210) on RK3399 RockPro with 5.4 kernel - Not booting (LEDs are not even active). I changed the DTB in extlinux.cfg and even tried to removed the "quiet" flag. Unfortuantly my RockPro is only connected to a TV, so if the RockPro hangs very early in the boot I cannot help.

    If you have any working system on the SD card that starts normally, you will be able to check the LE. You need to try to replace the u-boot in LE, on the version with a working SD card. You need to perform a few additional steps when preparing an SD card.

    1. Remove from working SD card u-boot. This can be done with this command on a Linux PC.

    dd if=/dev/<name_you_SD_works_card> of=u-boot-rockpro.img bs=1M count=16

    2. Write LE to SD card, configure DTB and replace u-boot with taken from working SD card. U-boot replacement is performed by two commands.

    dd if=u-boot-rockpro.img of=/dev/<new_SD_card_LE> conv=fsync bs=1 count=442

    dd if=u-boot-rockpro.img of=/dev/<new_SD_card_LE> conv=fsync bs=512 skip=1 seek=1

    After that, you can try running LE on RockPro. The last two commands write a working u-boot and save the existing partition table for the system written to the SD card. By the way, in the same way you can replace u-boot for Armbian system and check the start of any image.

    The new version of images 20191209. This version changes the DTB setting principle for the Odroid N2 model. Now the principle of setting is the same for all devices. You need to use two files (uEnv.ini) and (extlinux.conf). For models based on g12 (s905x2 s922), which have a problem not the correct color of the Kodi interface, you need to use the SD card to write the image and additionally download and copy the file to the SD card (u-boot.ext).

    5. Add Index of / as installation path in the file manager.

    6. install the ZIP via Add-Ons.

    I tested another installation option, I did not use the 5 and 6 step. I don't add third-party repositories. Immediately chose the search for addon EMBY and put the found versions with dependencies (they will be correct, because collected with a new version of KODI and Python3). Everything is installed without errors.

    If in Manjaro did not change the kernel (did not add patches), in the kernel everything should be enough (you can try to take DTB from their image). WiFi requires several elements. Try adding firmware (you may need your own options for Rock PI 4). I don't have this equipment, I can't help you with finding bugs. Do not pay attention to the options, they do not work yet (designed for AML).

    And also when using the YouTube Adon,

    I checked, the youtube plugin works on kernel version 5 (20191125).

    After that the normal LE configuration starts, but after selecting the language the configuration process stops.

    I can only reboot LE or turn off the SBC.

    The speed of the old flash drive will be low, so when you first start (when there is a parallel intensive process of various settings) you need to take your time. I never change the settings in the wizard, only when the system works at least 20-30 minutes, you can start changing the settings. Try slowly (without changing) to go through the wizard settings and change them in an already running system.

    With kernel 4 I have a Kodi interface running in 4K mode (4026). On 5 core the interface in 4K mode is not switched yet.

    These are not official test images for the RK33xx platform.

    After writing the image, you must correctly configure the DTB used in the file (extlinux/extlinux.conf).

    Version 20191125 kernel 5.

    Images rk3328 and r3399 are universal, when starting from USB media images are interchangeable (the only difference is used for the image u-boot and UART console output settings). Tar archives for updating are also universal.

    Note that the new generic images now use a single download directory.

    What image to choose for odroid N2 and also possible install to emmc card?

    The amlg12 image runs on N2. In the LE settings menu, there is an item to create a full eMMC backup before installation and an item to install LE in eMMC. For quick and easy testing of systems from different media (including USB flash drives), I recommend switching to SPIboot. The details there is in this topic previously.

    Test LibreELEC images with KODI-18 for S9xxx

    Added on site version of way of 20191120 with core 5 on base Panfrost. There is no HW decoder yet, but the performance of rk3399 is quite enough for SW video decoding with 1440p (1080p screen resolution). Tried with USB stick on the N6, all of the test videos worked. :)
