EmuELEC - v4.1


Recommended Posts


Note: Regular update is broken on 4.0, if you want to update directly you need to go to:
1.- Updates and Downloads and set update type to Stable
2.- EmuELEC Settings > Danger Zone > Force Update and follow the instructions

Otherwise you can download the .tar corresponding to your device and copy it to:

  • Using Samba/network share: Update
  • Directly to the SDCard on the EEROMS partition .update

FULLY read (and understand) the release notes and don't forget to use Reset EmuELEC scripts and binaries to default

  • Fix some TimeZones not displaying/working correctly (#546)
  • Fix hand-held bezels for 720p and 1080p

This version includes a big change on how binaries and scripts are stored, basically to deal with the issue of people not reading how to properly update and since I am getting tired of answering the same question over and over again, lets just move all binaries and scripts to RO /usr/bin, this will force update all of these and make updating much simpler.

If you use custom scripts /emuelec/bin and /emuelec/lib are still in the path so you will have to deal with it accordingly.

All configurations regarding emuelec will still be handled in /emuelec/config
