ODROID C2 S905 2GB RAM HDMI 2.0 $46
(2016-06-02, 20:13)Powerhouse Wrote: So because of the post from @wrxtasy, I've suddenly become very interested in this device (mainly because of the x265 support).

But being mainly a Windows guy, and normally I would purchase a NUC for my Kodi needs, the recent issues with the Skylake NUC, and the fact that it only supports x265 8bit (where the Odroid C2 does x265 10bit), are leaning me in the Odroids direction (not to mention the price of a NUC is around $350+ (I normally get the i5 versions) where the Odroid C2 is $40 (but with case and eMMC around $80).

So on to my questions.

1. Is there some place in the States that sells this device (I've seen the bare unit on Amazon for $60)? Preferably an online store that also sells the Cases, and eMMC modules.
2. On the Hardkernel website (http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php) they list the eMMC Modules C2 in either Linux or Android. Do these matter, or do I get a generic blank eMMC module, and put LibreELEC on it?
3. Speaking of LibreELEC, which version has full support for the C2? I see under version 8 that C2 support is coming soon. However, version 8 is setup to use Kodi 17 (currently in Alpha), and I would much rather use Kodi Jarvis (16.1). So which version of LibreELEC provides that?
4. Being a Windows guy, how do I install LibreELEC on a C2 (step by step instructions for a Noob would be greatly appreciated).

Thanks for any, and all help given for the above questions.

1. Look here: http://www.hardkernel.com/main/distributor.php
2. Doesn't matter, you can reflash it to whatever you want. The eMMC module comes with an micro sd card adapter.
3. If you hit up the Odroid Forum under C2 and Other OS there is a post started by wrxtasy. http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=138&t=20415
4. Use either Win32 Disk Imager or Rufus, plug eMMC into pc using the microsd adapter, flash IMG file using either of those apps. Boot your C2. Setup the network on your C2. Download the udated tar file (LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.aarch64-7.0.1.3D.ISO.MySQL.tar) via SMB copy this to the Update directory on your C2. Reboot your C2. It will update.
