https://github.com/miigotu/script.libreelec.devupdate/
I just installed LibreELEC on my RPi 2 and updated it with the latest testbuild.
I use a usb remote receiver with a Microsoft MCE remote.
What I noticed is that on LibreELEC 7.0 when I press and hold the Arrow keys on the remote they are repeated as they should, but after the update with the testbuild they are not.
So I have to click the keys again and again to scroll through lists etc.

Is there anything/file I can change to get the normal behavoir back?

Thanks in advance!

Yes and no. It depends what version of OpenELEC you're upgrading from - the most common reason for addons not working is libressl updates, which usually means you need a more recent build of the add-on. A lot of add-ons should continue working without any problems.

This makes processing the downloads from within a browser a tat less painful since it'll allow you to open the files right away instead of having to safe them somewhere first.
Thanks, I'll take a look.
(2016-04-29, 16:13)BUGGERLUGZ Wrote: [ -> ]Just a suggestion, but It would have been easier if there were actual disk images for the test builds available though when you're doing that fresh install.

While publishing upgrades in .img.gz file format is now possible with LibreELEC I prefer .tar files as it's easier to extract files from the .tar, and also I'm able to embed details of each build inside the .tar (which is more difficult with .img.gz). Also, upgrading using the .tar file is always going to be a little quicker and kinder on your SD card than .img.gz.

As there'd be no point in me publishing both .tar *and* .img.gz files (I'd drop .tar if I ever published .img.gz) I continue to publish what is for me the more flexible, faster and easier to use upgrade file format. Anyone looking to perform a fresh .img install can use the latest disk image LibreELEC release then upgrade as normal using the .tar.

Should be fixed now.

Anyone that reported problems adding shortcuts that were not being saved after a reboot, can you confirm if this problem is still present in build #0428 and later? Hopefully it's fixed now.
I like the new splash screen. Is there any way you can get rid of the first one (the tree) and the last one (kodi standard)? The new one covers what's going on Smile
The tree should be replaced by the new logo in the latest builds. You can disable the first LE splash by adding "nosplash" to /flash/cmdline.txt. Disable the Kodi splash by adding <splash>false</splash> to advancedsettings.xml.
Thanks Milhouse. I managed to disable the Kodi splash but I can't save cmdline.txt using nano (via ssh). Also the new splash cuts short before it flips over into the Kodi logo.

Any hope of working addons "VNC via DispmanX" ? Thanks info !

Thanks a lot. I'll give it a shot. And make a back-up first. I am using the last openelec milhouse build. And don't use a lot of addons. Mainly some radio stations and a Spotify add-podcast-feeds-xbmc-media-center.
