Ok, I found the issue. You forgot to revert yet another systemd 228 patch (https://github.com/vonfritz/Open ... caacc9bab101bc6f295)

systemd is patched so /etc is actually /storage/.config and that patch should prevent systemd to create and populate that folder. Because it fails, resizing code founds /storage/.config folder and refuses to resize the partition.

I also noticed that wifi network crashes right after association. But that is topic for tomorrow

EDIT: after quick check I found that this is upstream issue described as a comment to the commit: https://github.com/OpenELEC/Open ... e936f0e3b0c2911b5bb

You are right, forgot to revert this.
Then why not build on top of 6.0 instead of devel, maybe its more "stable".
I think most users here are interest in playing some HD videos and not to have "latest greatest".

You have to love them:
  1. PKG_NAME="connman"
  2. # DO NOT UPGRADE!!
  3. -PKG_VERSION="1.23"
  4. +PKG_VERSION="1.30"
Copy code


That would be the easy way, but I that case I would never start the project I think that I will stick with it and patch things as they come. This is opensource and someone who prefers stability could certainly do that. Maybe we can even contribute upstream.

hey, good job jernej! you simply have done the impossible.
But i'm sorry to be so rude, can you show us how you got Allwinner libs to work with kodi?
simply because I don't think this OpenElec fork will be maintained forever, and some users would like to know how to get it working from scratch.

other issue I have seen is sometime it does not rebuild u-boot if you change DEVICE. resulting in having the wrong script.bin in the FAT partition.
Better clean it manualy before building for another DEVICE:
sudo PROJECT=H3 ARCH=arm DEVICE=xxx scripts/clean u-boot
or check script.bin on the FAT partition if it's ok.
That's it for now,

I assume that you are interested only in CedarX codec?

Simple, I studied following code:
https://github.com/rellla/xbmca10
https://github.com/zidootech/zidoo-kodi-14.2
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc
https://github.com/allwinner-zh/ ... sunxi-cedarx/SOURCE
https://github.com/linux-sunxi/libvdpau-sunxi/tree/h3-dev (this will come handy for direct rendering)

You can see that xbmca10 hw codec is almost the same as this for H3. Binary library was extracted from H3 media SDK provided by Steven although with some fixes also open source one can be used.

I also read a lot of forums but posts were mostly negative.

That's it. I hope you are not disappointed I noticed that everything is on the net and I was bit confused why no one put this together before.

Yeah, you know, I buy this board for media center and I want it operational ASAP

EDIT: Seriously, I went with easiest approach.

Well, the easiest approach is not always "the best".
