LibreElec on Tinkerboard
#1
Arran Short https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnMwPaWfCdI2IOH79i52yFw has posted a demo video https://youtu.be/q8v-gZ-2DGA along with a link to how to build a bootable SD card image of LibreElec for the ASUS tinker board. https://wiki.libreelec.tv/index.php?title=Compile

The image I've built can be downloaded here

use it at your own risk!
I've done no extended testing and I would recommend a fan or bigger heatsink to keep things cool.

This isn't my work but was built from the repo found here
https://github.com/omegamoon/LibreELEC.tv/tree/Rockchip

Big thanks to "omegamoon" and all who contributed to that repo it's looking promising for kodi on Tinkerboard!

I would not recommend anyone using this for anything more then testing at the moment, this is still very much work in progress, expect memory leaks and crashes.

See README.md at https://github.com/Kwiboo/LibreELEC.tv/tree/rockchip/projects/Rockchip/devices/TinkerBoard to follow our progress.

I've built an image from Kwiboo's github with his most recent changes, I've uploaded it to https://ufile.io/xmxir if anyone wants to try it.

Two things I've found were that the PVR client doesnt seem to work (saw a few dependency not met errors) and the LibreElec repo doesnt connect, other than that seems to be reasonably stable

Didn't notice there's an image built, another built on google drive in gz file.
Same issues as doubledecks reported, with Aukru's case purchased from Amazon and exodus add-on, i think it worth a try.

Hi everyone,

I decided to try LibreElec on my Tinker board, and it looks promising.
I can't figure out how to enable Bluetooth though; when going into the System's settings, Bluetooth is shown as Disabled, with no option to enable it.
Any one got to using Bluetooth with Tinker board?

I also didn't manage to do it using the Debian 1.8 that Asus provides.

Thank you.

I couldn't get bluetooth to work on Linux on the tinkerboard. I did get it to work on Android though.

@Kwiboo: Can you please post how to burn your software to SD card? I have checked releases, but there is no img-file...
