LibreElec on Tinkerboard

Same issues as doubledecks reported, with Aukru's case purchased from Amazon and exodus add-on, i think it worth a try.

This image works fine for me. Even CPU temp seems similar to Asus' Android. Only PVR addons are missing ...

The easiest way is to use the LibreELEC USB-SD Creator from https://libreelec.tv/downloads/ and use "Select file" to select one of the img-files provided in this thread or one you have built yourself.

I do not "release" any img-files myself and currently treat this as a proof-of-concept, our target for upstreaming is Kodi Leia and LibreELEC 9.

Going to give the image above your post a try. I will report back.

Have I read this correctly?! You're aiming to create a Kodi Leia/LibreElec9 version for the Tinkerboard? and this image is just a means of checking it's achievable? Where can I keep an eye on this progress? Cheers in advance

The aim is for generic Rockchip "support", the Tinker Board parts is working rather stable, current focus is on RK3328 based boards such as ROCK64.

Check the links to different GitHub repos at https://github.com/Kwiboo/LibreELEC.tv/t...s/Rockchip for up to date code and changes.
Note that the branches is often rebased and commits are squashed, current work-in-progress branch is rockchip-wip-v2 and will replace the main rockchip branch any day now.

Thank you for that info. Is it possible to create an image for the Tinker Board with the latest rockchip-wip-v2? if so any info you can point me towards to show how I can compile the files? (I have the img mentioned above and just wondering of the latest branch will be better to use?) Any help you can give or links will be great as never compiled my own build, but installed and tweaked existing ones. Oh and anyway to overclock this like the RP 2/3 and the Odroid? thank you...

incidentally to anyone using the img mentioned on page 2 (with the Chinese writing in the filenanme) it runs damn hot and will shut down without a fan attached. Don't use without as you'll end up frying your board.

Can someone please post how to create a SD card image or a zip-file to update Libreelec?

Already posted a few posts up. You need to download the LibreElec SD creator tool as instructed and choose the image you've downloaded (I downloaded the one on the link on page 2) If it's a filename ending .gz (that one is) you need to unpack it with Winrar so that you have an .img file and then use the tool to write that to the SD Card. All you need to do then is put it into your TB and let it install. Will overheat and shut off without a fan installed though, or at least mine did after getting to 80 degrees (55 degrees with a fan)

Hi GadgetMan, 

Thank you for your answer, but I wanted to know how I can create an image file from Github...   Huh

Up to 80 degrees is not burning the CPU... do you know CPU's limit?

I build my development images using a docker container, see https://github.com/Kwiboo/LibreELEC.tv/t...ols/docker for instructions on how you can build your own image inside a docker container, https://wiki.libreelec.tv/index.php?title=Compile also have relevant information on the LibreELEC building system.
Note that it will require ~20GiB storage space and hours of compiling time depending on your build host performance, I usually build a clean image in 1h 30m.

@GadgetMan: you do not need to unpack the img.gz, LibreELEC USB-SD Creator can read both img and img.gz files.

The image default to performance governor for cpu and gpu, meaning it will run at full speed all the time.
You can change governor using commands below, will reset to performance on reboot.

Code:
LibreELEC:~ # cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy0/scaling_available_governors
interactive conservative ondemand userspace powersave performance schedutil sched
LibreELEC:~ # echo interactive > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy0/scaling_governor

LibreELEC:~ # cat /sys/devices/platform/ffa30000.gpu/devfreq/ffa30000.gpu/available_governors
userspace powersave performance simple_ondemand
LibreELEC:~ # echo simple_ondemand > /sys/devices/platform/ffa30000.gpu/devfreq/ffa30000.gpu/governor

EDIT:

There is now pre-build test images for Tinker Board and ROCK64 at https://github.com/Kwiboo/LibreELEC.tv/releases

Hi Kwiboo,

Sounds awesome! Thanks a lot!
Is it possible to test this on debian, by extracting the kodi binaries? (I have a system set up already with TinkerOS)
My first thought would be to extract /usr/lib/kodi and copy+run it on my system but I guess thats not enough?
