OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 16.0)

Use these builds in the event of any Kodi crash-related behaviour. Requires expanded FAT partition >= 384MB.
Note: For Win users awareness.

On Win PC to create custom size System & Storage partition on SD card, then instal generic build of openelec; I roughly followed this guide. https://tasksofohm.wordpress.com/hardwar...pberry-pi/ (Adjusting System partion size to suit requirements of debug builds)

Unfortunately setting System partition size at exactly 384MB using MiniTool Partition Wizard actually created partition slightly smaller than required by Milhouse debug build at 381MB which meant that when I was ready and tried leopold dev addon to install Milhouse debug builds it did not provide option to instal debug builds. (Lower than 384MB)

Currently in senario of do I backup content then delete Storage partition to allow me to increase size of System partion using MiniTool Partition Wizard, then recreate Storage partition etc. (MiniTool Partition Wizard does not allow to shrink EXT4 Storage partition to increase FAT System partition unless I am missing something)

---update---

Used Backup addon in Kodi to create and store a Backup in remote location, before shuting down Kodi/Pi.
Using MiniTool Partition Wizard, Deleted Storage partition, then expanded EXT4 System Partition to 500MB, then recreated Storage Partition in remaining SD space. (Win PC)
Rebooted Kodi (Noting standard Openelec Storage folders are re-created) recovered the Backup re-installing/using Backup addon.
Everything now looks OK and can now install Milhouse debug build if/when required. SmileBlush
