Notice on updating from LibreELEC builds


#1

If you have updated from a LibreELEC build without doing a new/fresh install then no support will be given.

Because of the changes between our images and LE images, it is not a trouble-free upgrade anymore.

Remote configuration is also different to what users on 8.2 are used to and will require a new configuration, more information can be found here.

On a final note, you should not use 8.2 device trees with our images as you will have no IR if you do, our device trees are packaged with our ‘img.gz’ files and can be found under the device_trees folder on your usb drive/sd-card, using these files here will also mean your DTB will automatically update when flashing any of our newer updates.

When you say “you have updated from a LibreELEC build without doing a new/fresh install” does that mean you cannot install CE onto a new USB and restore a LE backup?

Or, do you mean updating directly from LE to CE?

TIA
