T8-S OTA update for openELEC < Back to All

September 28, 2015

A new firmware update for openELEC is now available for DroidBOX® T8-S owners.

The changelog (changes in this release) include:

  • VPN connections can now be created againAdd VPN option openELEC
  • Fixed a factory reset combination which could cause a device to lock in a boot loop
  • Fixed a broken section of EDID implementation that could cause a device to fail to load openELEC


How To Check For The Update (if you don't see a notification automatically):

  • Turn on your T8-S (Switch to openELEC if in Android) then scroll to the right and click on the Programs entry
  • Open the OpenELEC Dev Update
    (Start here if the notification is still on your screen)
  • choose the 20788 (29 Sep 15) build from the menu - if a more recent build is listed, try that
  • Click Yes to confirm the upgrade

The update will now download. Once complete you will be prompted to run XBMC Backup, you can skip this part if you wish to (if this is the first time you've used openELEC or have wiped the data to start afresh, there is definitely no need to backup!)  After this you will be prompted to Reboot to install the update.
