The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 5.0.6.

OpenELEC-5.0 is the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.2.

The headline change is the update from XBMC 13 (Gotham) to Kodi 14.2 (Helix) and the big switch from XBMC to Kodi branding. Both project teams have conducted a major find/replace but if you spot residual mentions of XBMC anywhere please let us know. The name change affects more than the GUI; all references in code have been changed and in the OpenELEC filesystem /storage/.xbmc will be recreated as a symlink to /storage/.kodi to ensure hardcoded paths in addons or scripts continue to work. For information on Kodi 14 you can find on http://kodi.tv/kodi-14-0-helix-unwinds/.

Noticed the update notification on my i5 machine last night, rebooted it, another machine and my RPi 2 and the new update was automatically installed on each. Automatic update from 5.0.3 was a breeze.

No issues with the install, all machines still share there database and play media without any issues.

Thanks for another great update.

The rewind regression has been present since at least 4.2. I know for sure it wasn't in 4.0.7. Not sure if this is specific to Pi builds though?

Is WeTek an actual company?

The device looks very nice but there is hardly any information about the company that is standing behind the device. No contact address no legal information, nothing. Even the WHOIS information is hidden by domainsbyproxy.com. And there is at least one typo in each sentence on their website...

I currently have the old version of OpenElec and I have the date issue, even when I delay the bootup. I found out that when I switch on my router at the same time as my RPi the RPi shows the old date. This is because the internet connection isn't fully active; as the system uses Internet time. I found that if I power up the RPi a few seconds after my router, everythings fine. If not then I go into OpenElec settings, Network, Timeserver #1, leave blank and press Esc, the system auto checks the time again and resets.

Anyway, my reason for looking at the new OpenElec OS is because of YouTube. They have blacked some older devices as they have fully removed Flash & gone to HTML5. When I go into the YouTube Add-On by TheCollective, I now see the 'Device Support' video listed in every subscription. I use YouTube Channels, as it's better for me, and this also shows the videos listed. When I open the video it says my device is no longer supported. Is this a OpenElec thing or the YouTube Add-On? If I upgrade to Helix will this go away? Anyone else seen these videos listed? I think it's a big issue as the YouTube channels aren't updating anymore :(

Thanks

I am getting this message when attempting to boot 5.0.2:

Xorg service is in a process [ x number of minutes/secs till done]
Failed to start Xorg server
Dependency failed for flux box window manager
Reached target Graphical Interface
Starting XBMC user auto script
Started XBMC user auto script
Starting XBMC
Reached target XBMC interface

Nothing after this but a blinking cursor.  I am running a Linux HTPC.  I have no earthly clue where to start.  Thanks ;)

+Hans Thulin Your report refers to code that was dropped since more than a year from OpenELEC, not sure what you want with that bugreport.

OpenELEC is a small-weight Linux distro created to run XBMC with as tiny footprint as possible. PLEASE: no issue reports and feature requests here! Please use https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/issues Description Open Embedded Linux Entertainment Center, or OpenELEC for short, is a small Linux distribution built from scratch as a platform to turn your computer into a complete XBMC media center. OpenELEC is designed to make your system boot as fast as possible and the install is so easy that anyone can turn a blank PC into a media machine in less than 15 minutes. Please join our community too: https://twitter.com/openelec https://plus.google.com/+openelec
Introduction
OpenELEC is an embedded Linux distribution that aims to allow people to use their Home Theatre PC (HTPC) in the same manner as any other device attached to your TV - like a DVD player or Sky box. Turn on your box, and OpenELEC is ready and waiting in less than 10 seconds - as fast as some DVD players. A simple remote control is all you will need. On top of that, one need not worry about updating OpenELEC, as the software will self-update automatically when connected to the Internet and an update is available. Installing OpenELEC takes less than 5 minutes and requires zero Linux experience. After that, one need merely add one’s media files and preferred addons, and OpenELEC will “just work.”
