OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2

Thank for your answer, yes i did create a single EXt4 partition on the USB, the problem is really the sda1 i think, i read tha tit can be sad2 or even something else, how do i find this?

regarding the update i put KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5 in the upgrade folder (wich i had to create) restarted, and nothing happens, no error and no upgrade but it did not upgrade, but it is stil on the same build
Pi and win machine are on the same network. i will try:Start/Run "\\OPENELEC\Update"

I knwo it might not be the right place, but i'm using milhouse build and did not find anything with the search tool, i would behappy to post somewhere else if you tell me where.

in the cmdline by boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/sda1 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 ssh and it did not work.
I understood that sda1 could be different depending on the systems, buy how do i find the right one?
Did you create a single partition on the USB stick and format it with an ext3 file system? You'll need to use something like Minitool Partition Wizard under Windows:

What is the easiest way to upgrade?
Be more specific than "it did not upgrade". Did you see errors when you rebooted the Pi?
If you needed to create the update folder you're probably doing something wrong because it should be created for you automatically.

Are the PI and your Windows computer connected to the same network? What happens if you Start/Run "\\OPENELEC\Update" on Windows? You should see an empty folder. Put your KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5 files in there.

@MilHouseVH - Is this the correct place for this kind of discussion?
