Nightly builds

My fears have come true. The update nightly 20191101? with CoreELEC for Mecool KIII Pro (S912) in the internal memory has caused the impossibility of booting the system. I have returned to the stable version 9.2.0 from a USB flash, I have installed CoreELEC in the internal memory, and I have recovered my last backup.

Ok, coreelec boot nicely from microsd. Can i access the “faulty” emmc from this corelec install?

Yes if you boot the SD and then list the partitions using “df”.

Looking for the update folder in EMMC, any ideas?

Its a kernel panic so i doubt it will ever get to checking the update folder.


Success: booted with microSD, copied CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.2.0.tar to backup folder on microsd running corelec. Used putty to access coreelec and copied the .tar to var/media/STORAGE/.update.
Removed micro sd and booted EMMC, updated in boot and booted up nicely to stable 9.2.0


Agreed. Not sure why the update isn’t pulled. Pull it till a fix is confirmed.

It’s pulled. You can see that the latest nightly available is from November first.


sorry, but how do I restore it on Odroid N2, the instructions are too fuzzy for me.
CE is running on the sd card but looping cause of the faulty nightly.

it’s an img file, I’m not having luck extracting it so far.

Use the .tar file, not .img.gz

7zip did it. Don’t I need the one that is specific to N2 (which is img)
CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.2-nightly_20191101.tar – this one will do?

Yes, that’s the one you need.

TheCoolest I see SYSTEM and KERNEL on the tar but the mSD has a file called KERNEL.img not just KERNEL.
Do I need to rename it or delete the kernel.img?

rename KERNEL to kernel.img and copy it to sd card

thanks. fixed now.

Is that happened?

Really? Where it is?

Pop up when you power reboot after nightly update file loaded.
