A LOT of the released files had the following line on top!
"All right reserved"
Basically it means, whatever you gonna do, you need permission for it!

Then there were A TON of files which contained no license statement what so ever. It doesn't work like that; If the license is unsure, it does not automatically make it free of use.

If you want to distribute an OpenELEC version for example, which includes a linux kernel + Allwinner drivers and such. It has to be stated that you are allowed to redistribute it.

Now it is!


The video codec is different as the library is closed source, therefor only binary blobs are present.
