Based on tip of OpenELEC master (455a1b39, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (c5ec4161, changelog) with the following modifications: Build Highlights:
  1. New firmware with schmoo support for better Pi2 sdram overclocking.

    I'm able to hit a stable 600MHz with the following and this new firmware (your mileage may vary):
    The increased sdram bandwidth is a benefit with HEVC playback, particularly at 1080p.

    For testing, reduce gpu_mem to 64 (in order to test as much RAM as possible) then:
    wget -O ~/memtester && chmod +x ~/memtester
    systemctl stop kodi
    ~/memtester 850
    See sdram overclocking discussion for more details.

  2. Partially strip libc which may provide improved stacktraces in non debug-enabled builds
  3. libnfs 1.10.0
  4. PR7030 updated with WOL fixes, @rewsteruk please confirm if this fixes remaining issue
Build Details:
  1. Firmware (Feb 1):
    • firmware: audioplus: pause burst frames use 32-bits as payload length
    • firmware: Fix typos in various headers. See: link
    • firmware: Video_encode: Support OMX_IndexConfigVideoIntraVOPRefresh. See: link
    • firmware: Add support for VC_IMAGE_BGR888/OMX_COLOR_Format24bitRGB888 to video_render
    • firmware: Rawcam: Add some more debug, and support for RGB888 and BGR888
    • firmware: bootcode: Remove support for CM msd as it is not believed to be used
    • firmware: bootcode: Avoid controlling LED gpio on CM
    • firmware: Add logging for clock management from the videocore. Using vcdbg log msg the logging will include setting of channel and output frequencies
    • firmware: platform: Add config option to adjust sdram schmoo settings. See: link
    • firmware: arm_loader: Add mailbox properties to get and set gpio state
    • firmware: arm_loader: Add Pi0 model string
