What do you mean by this? hdmi_group/hdmi_mode settings in config.txt?

here is the .kodi folder: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3675...5-kodi.zip
1. replace your .kodi-folder with this one
2. select: Programs > AdvancedLauncher > Default > SNES > Super Bomberman 3
3. you'll get a black screen. The game starts, if you change OE with any build lower than #1202
I hope this helps
Thx for looking into it

I've reproduced and it's not kodi.bin hanging. The problem seems to be that when retroarch calls the "systemctl stop kodi" command in retroach.start, it basically commits suicide as all processes within the kodi.service CGroup are terminated, including retroarch.start.

I added a 10 second delay in retroarch.start before the call to "systemctl stop kodi" and this is the status of the kodi.service at that point:
Code:
OpenELEC:~ # systemctl status kodi
● kodi.service - Kodi Media Center
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/kodi.service; disabled)
   Active: active (running) since Sun 2014-12-07 11:27:44 GMT; 1min 40s ago

Hint: Some lines were ellipsized, use -l to show in full.


When using the "old" kodi.service the CGroup appears identical, so the differen introduced by kodi.sh is very subtle:
Code:
OpenELEC:~ # systemctl status kodi
● kodi.service - Kodi Media Center
   Loaded: loaded (/storage/.config/system.d/kodi.service; disabled)
   Active: active (running) since Sun 2014-12-07 11:40:40 GMT; 30s ago
  Process: 1167 ExecStartPre=/usr/lib/kodi/kodi-config (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
Main PID: 1169 (kodi.bin)
   CGroup: /system.slice/kodi.service

           └─1237 sleep 10

I'll post this information to github to see if there is a possible fix.

In the meantime, if you want to revert to the old behaviour:
Code:
systemctl stop kodi
wget http://sprunge.us/PVbI -O /storage/.config/system.d/kodi.service
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl start kodi

Hopefully there will be a solution that you can test in due course.

No, in Kodi---> Settings --> System ---> Video Output ---> Set Gui Resolution Limit ---> 720. The main video resolution is [email protected]
Here are the debug-logs on a fresh installed SD-Card: memorysplit 256/256
#1206
Loading RetroArch with a script from AdvancedLauncher gives the same black screen as before, no change. The Pi does not "hang", I can do a systemctl start kodi to get Kodi again. There must be something wrong when calling systemctl stop kodi from the script in AdvancedLauncher.
http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=365192

#1201
same Card as before, I changed only SYSTEM, kernel.img, bootcode.bin and start.elf with the ones from #1201
Loading RetroArch with a script from AdvancedLauncher works. I can play the game, exit the Emu with Select + Start and Kodi loads again.

Now there is only 256MB Memory total detected! HuhHuhHuh I changed nothing in config.txt Confused Why?

Loading a Game with AdvancedLauncher
http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=365202
Kodi releoaded after exiting the Emu:
http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=365206
only 256MB Memory again Confused

BTW:
the script calling RetroArch is in .kodi/addons/emulator.tools.retroarch/bin/
retroarch.sh calls retroarch.start which exits Kodi and loads RetroArch

the launcher.xml for AdvancedLauncher is in .kodi/userdata/addon_data/plugin.program.advanced.launcher

OK, thx Milhouse
I'll wait for a fix. Hopefully, we will get one.

The remaining thing is the detected 256MB when replacing SYSTEM, kernel.img, bootcode.bin and start.elf
see the logfiles above

Can you try changing the default HDMI mode from DESKTOP to something else (e.g. [email protected]) and reboot. Does that allow the splash video to complete?

start.elf and fixup.dat always need to be updated together, or you will be stuck with a fixed 128M/128M memory split.

Sure, I can. But with or without GUI resolution limit?

I think this is likely to be your fix:

Edit /storage/.kodi/addons/emulator.tools.retroarch/bin/retroarch.sh and change
Code:
nohup /storage/.kodi/addons/emulator.tools.retroarch/bin/retroarch.start "$@" > /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/emulator.tools.retroarch/config/nohup.out &
to
Code:
systemd-run /storage/.kodi/addons/emulator.tools.retroarch/bin/retroarch.start "$@"

and Retroarch should now work without any changes to kodi.service.

Makes no difference.

All my mentioned problems are fixed now

Ok, thanks.
Tested at [email protected] without GUI limitation, but I don't see any difference: there is a cut in the final part of the animation.

I updated my system to the actual build ... and now my hyperion ambilight system is no longer working.
All the LED's are off no light at all.

Could this be related to the new firmware?

Best way to find out is to revert to an earlier build and identify the first build that stopped working.
