The OpenELEC team is proud to release the 7th beta of OpenELEC 2.0!

Internally this is known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 1.95.7 πŸ™‚

After the release of OpenELEC Beta 6 we received  new bug reports regarding non working Samba shares and Network related problems. Most of them should be fixed now.

  • Because we have included the AMD legacy driver in our Generic builds with Beta 6 its needed for all users of this builds to check the partition size of the first partition. This builds are now around 165MB. You can do this via ssh (putty):
df -h /flash
  • Starting with Beta 4 we also checked for corrupt update files before upgrading commences. On very rare occasions the download of our updates were incomplete and caused the system to fail after reboot. As our user base grows, rarer problems such as this one will emerge and be dealt with in a similar manner. This change will reduce the number of upgrades problems.
    To manually update the procedure is the same as before however you must also copy KERNEL.md5 and SYSTEM.md5 to the update folder/share together with KERNEL and SYSTEM.
