OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
I think "firmware: gpioman: Add support for configuring gpio from external blob file" broke my lightberry ambilight set. LEDs are only blue now and if I start hyperion top right corner only flickers, and nothing else happens.

So if you go back to the previous firmware (start.elf) but keep everything else the same, your ambilight works correctly?

I need to check. Simply installed old build yesterday, because i was in hurry. But imho this is the only commit that could create such behaviour.
You're most likely correct, just need to confirm it's definitely the firmware and not something else. If you're on the old firmware already you should just copy the SYSTEM and kernel.img from #0716 to your SD card - assuming it's a firmware issue, your ambilight should work fine. Then copy the #0716 firmware to the SD card, and again if it's a firmware issue the ambilight should stop working.

Currently at work. Will check in the evening and report back asap.

Is there an easy way to expand the partition? Could the installer be changed to create a bigger partition in future to avoid this issue?

Gparted is supposed to work, if you have a different linux system in which you can chuck you SD card. Do make a backup first just in case!

To have the installer (on linux) take care of it, change the following lines in create_sdcard:
Code:
parted -s "$DISK" unit cyl mkpart primary fat32 -- 0 16
# align the partition on 4mb boundary, starting at 132mb (132 % 4 == 0), which
# is right after the first partition
  parted -s "$DISK" mkpart primary ext2 -- 132MiB -2cyl

To the following to double the partition size (from 132 to 264MB):

Code:
parted -s "$DISK" unit cyl mkpart primary fat32 -- 0 32
# align the partition on 4mb boundary, starting at 264mb (264 % 4 == 0), which
# is right after the first partition
  parted -s "$DISK" mkpart primary ext2 -- 264MiB -2cyl

Using the installer will obviously wipe your complete SD card.
Thanks Forage, I was thinking more of having the updater change the partition size when it does the update but perhaps that's not possible. I can probably use gparted in Virtualbox.
If your 'storage' volume is on USB, you don't need the ext4 'storage' partition on the card, so you don't need to format with UNIX/Linux tools.

You can just format a/the SD card with a FAT32 'system' partition of whatever size you want, and restore the files from your existing 'system' partition.
With your Builds Wlan not working ! I use TL-WN 722n

Reverting bcm2835-driver to 1e7d3d9 worked. xbmc is on newclock3 branch (14-dc0901d). So it's definitly the firmware causing this issue.

hi,

for those people who don't have a virtual machine gparted works great using the ''live'' iso on a bootable usb stick.
google gparted for the iso.
i use''rufus'' image maker for the bootable flash drive.( on win 7 )
you can then boot into gparted and mess around with all the partitions on your sd card!
