I then went and added the files into the update folder for the latest Rbej build and when restarting, I get a mount error. It appears that when the update runs, it renames the USB drive label and stuffs up my installation.

No idea which guide you followed, but the OE auto update process will only work reliably when boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 - if you use a different boot device, the update process will behave... unpredictably. There seems little interest in resolving this issue. At one time I provided a patch fo this, which rbej used to include, but apparently no longer.


Well, I also tried to update to this awesome builds with NFS booting, and it didn't work for me.

I did it by starting with an OpenELEC image written to the sdcard with win32diskimager.
I placed rbej's Gotham build (KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5) into .update folder in storage folder.

Now what i am doing is just to overwrite SYSTEM file from rbej's build to my NFS system folder, and the rest of the needed files to the sdcard, and reboot.
It seems to be updating correctly, since the system info shows the last versions.

Do you think its correct updating this way, i am missing something ?

I don't know if its related, but I have also the rainbow screen that shows a sec when booting.

Also the Pictures section that make Xbmc reboot every time, it's not a big deal for an alpha.

Do you think the Frodo Branch will have Trickplay back-ported ?

Thanks for your hard work, this builds are really great!.
