I believe Intel employ a whole army of devs just for Kernel work alone.
Which begs the question, why aren't AMLogic... If it's just because they can save the money and continue to release new Android builds based on old kernels, they will presumably hit a point where they need to move to a newer kernel. (3.14 LTS only has 6 month of LTS left after all...)
Could be, reach the end of LTS and then be forced to build new Kernels. Or maybe Google forces their hand with new Android OS ?

Anyone know what Linux Kernel version something like a nVIDIA Shield is using ?

Sorry that ask. When will the first assembly Openelec for C2 or it will not be for C2?


RE: ODROID C2 S905 2GB RAM HDMI 2.0 $40 - Loki69 - 2016-02-21

pretty sure wrxtasy has said that the openelec for the C2 will launch when the C2 is available commercially no point doing it earlier

Which Wi-Fi adapters expect wi-fi "odroid" are supported for C2 Openelec?

this should be asked over on the odroid forums not really a kodi question (i know its kodi related) but will get a better answer over thier and also they have more people with test units currently on the forums over thier.

They are two very different things though, and the support for running various OSs on the ODroid boards is good. (We don't all just use SBCs just for Kodi :-) )


RE: ODROID C2 S905 2GB RAM HDMI 2.0 $40 - kanyck - 2016-02-29

It's available on hardkernel's site for $40.
However, I've read that early S905 had hardware issues that were fixed in the next revision: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=255606&pid=2208083#pid2208083
The question is -- what revision will I get if I order it now?


RE: ODROID C2 S905 2GB RAM HDMI 2.0 $40 - wrxtasy - 2016-02-29

No idea, that would be a specific question only HardKernel could answer.

Just a heads up. You really only need a Case and the Board itself. The C1 and C2, work happily with just using a Mini otg to usb cable plugged into a Phone charger for power. And thats with a DVB USB Tuner attached and a few other small USB dongles. I also use the responsive built in IR port, so don't even use an extra remote.

Start adding 2.5" HDD's and you need a proper power supply, like all ARM gear.

Also I would only get WiFi / BT usb dongles from HardKernel so you know 100% they are going to work. Or at the very least ask them directly on their specific C2 Sub-forum about compatibility before purchase.

Odroid C2 really looks very promising.
Can you please compare C1+ with C2 in the scope of HD Audio passthrough HDMI and CEC?
Are you going to release new OpenELEC especially for Odroid C2 which will utilize 64bit architecture or it can be easily OpenELEC for C1+ used?
