Sure, you can mount the image in Linux system and modify the script.bin file to configure the resolution, but to do that, you need the bin2fex and fex2bin tools before, these are inside the sunxi-tools package that you can get from github (https://github.com/linux-sunxi/sunxi-tools)...

Thanks, I have it working now.
Actually there is no need to mount the image, since LibreElec seems to mount from FAT as a loopback device.
But it would be real pain for a Windows user to do that.
I have attached a script.bin file for NTSC. Imho it would be useful to have some extra script.bins packed with the prebuild image, so users could just replace scrpit.bin with the file they need (1280x1024; 1080 -d; HDReady, etc.). I suppose that as a 7zip it won't take more than 30 of 40 kB.
I could create and upload such script.bins.

Hi,

Sorry, but unfortunately I don't have time to give any software support, neither updates. I jus ...

Thanks for the pointer to the sources @JRios.

I'm planning to port LibreElec to OPIs Win Plus. Would you be able to help, in case I get stuck?

I don't know if anyone has found this before me:

Some guy from Italy has prepared LibreElec 8 images for orange family. I did not try them, just sending the link.

Hi @jayendran,

Sure, I can try to help you with the things I know, however I don't have a great knowledge about the port and the patches made by @jernej for H3 devices, perhaps the most appropriate to support you with the port to the A64 could be @jernej itself (if he had no problem).

I don't own any A64 based board, like the OPi Win (or Win Plus), neither have a profound knowledge about the deepest low-level Linux kernel and the drivers of the BSP hardware abstraction layer, but I can say some considerations about it:
  • The A64 SoC is very similar to H3 SoC (and both has same mali400-MP2 GPU), so I suspect that the port could be very similar to the H3 port made by @jernej, and a lot of patches could be re-utilized.
  • The A64 SoC is used in other SBCs (like Pine64 and Banana Pi m64), so maybe there is already an OpenELEC or LibreELEC port for It, or a work in progress (WIP)?
  • Could the main issue will be the hardware accelerated video decoding... Cause the mali driver version in A64 Linux Kernel provided by Xunlong, may be different from the H3?
  • From the OpenELEC/LibreELEC sources, some important directories to add a new SoC support are the "projects" folder, where you can find the H3 boards support,the "packages" folder where you can find the softwares packages that are going to be used and installed in the build (e.g. for the H3 port: The Kernel, sunxi-tools, u-boot, etc.)...
  • You can get an idea of the H3 port process, taking a look in the @jernej github commits,from oldest to newest.I think It is very usefull.

Regards.

That comes from "Kodi 17?" Thread, by @amicrodev. Actually not HW accelerated (just Software Decoded, CPU cores at 100% all the time).
