users with cubox i4pro:
can you try with...

I had the kernel panic issue on an i4pro (kernel check said ok), tried resizing but the thing failed to boot entirely. Tried your image from scratch (dd onto the SD card) and it boots fine now, partition size listed as 537 mb. Finally, I restored the OpenELEC backup made immediately prior to trying the upgrade from 6.0.3 and it seems to have been successful. Thanks for the extra work.

Incidentally, a little nitpick on the message during the restore - "restoring.. this may take long time to complete, please wait .." (sic).

Hello,

while creating the filesystems the Installer uses the comand:

"mke2fs -t ext4"

but the used busyboxversion 1.26.0 (24.12.2016)

does NOT support "-t" option.

So the creation of the partition failed and the installer stops. (87 % or 85%)

Regards,
Tom

I actually have the same issue as this. Unfortunately, I cannot install a previous version on my Asrock ION330HT and upgrade that way (current OE version I'm running is ancient). Hope this can be adressed soon!

Weird I upgraded my two RPi* systems, but airplayed only worked once I disabled airplay in settings - on both system :) Dunno if its a bug for all that runs this version of openelec on RPi2/3 or if something happened when I upgraded, but as soon as I enable airplay my devices cannot find Kodi anymore, disable it and there it is and working perfectly again.

@sraue - the devel image you linked works fine in a cubox-i 4pro. Wrote to a formatted SD card and had no issues.

The failing "Size check" means your first (SYSTEM) partition is to small, thats why we recommend new installs. Since a year we using 512MB partitions, 256MB is not more enough for Generic builds.

This would have been a nice addition to the wiki. I am no noob and can do it on my on but again, the info would have been great so I don't waste my time finding the answer. If you change things, at the pace you change versions (6.0.3 here) it's been over a year hence people that got the last update like I did cannot know about this. Even then, why not do a proper installer that would correct the partition size or a small command so people with less experience could do this easily.

I feel bad for all the people that installed this setup for their moms or others, not the kind of thing you can just do remotely!

So, why exactly did the power button on my remote stop working after this update? It was working just fine before.

Can't even turn the device (Wetek Core) on now, unless I unplug the cables and start it that way. While it's on,
all the other buttons work and I can browse regularly.

What gives?

Hey ThreeSixe,

try to use the old remote.conf from the previous build and see if it work for u then? Copy the old one to /storage/.config/ and reboot the box. Check then if the buttons are working fine then.

Regards,

Fossy

Same problem here since updating to Openelec 7.0! Is there any update on this?

Once i turn off the unit i cant switch it back on with the remote. Quite frustrating.

EDIT: Just realized the power button on the wektek remote does nothing at all, however my Harmony remote (which I am using via a USB IR adapter) does shut the wetek core off but I am unable to power it back up with either remote after the upgrade to 7.0.

Happy to help troubleshoot if you can let me know what you need e.g. log files etc.

Hi!
I have tried the following scenarios for upgrade:
1: My old 6.0.3 to 7.0.0 - Failed, kernel panic
2: Clean 6.03 to 7.0.0 - failed, kernel panic
3: Clean 7.0.0 - failed, partition resizing works but then it shows a lot of ascii characters and when that has completed it reboots, and then kernel panic,
4: Clean 7 develop image to 7.0.0 stable , kernel panic
So now I am running on a 7 development image, the one mentioned above.
On my Raspberry Pi2 the upgrade from 6.0.3 to 7.0.0 worked without issues.
But, I am sure the partition resizing thingy works, it is the reboot afterwards that crashes.

I thought i would just share the harrowing experience of trying to upgrade to OpenElec 7.0
I am running an OpenElec Wetek Box -running 6.95 - this was working fantastically, then I received a popup which told me there was an upgrade to 7.0 waiting. My upgrade settings were set to Auto so I was expecting a formal notification to upgrade. Nothing appeared, so I decided to opt for the manual upgrade.After several tries of downloading and installation failing, I gave up. Closed down and went to bed.
Next morning when I booted up - my system was "BRICKED" in every sense of the word.
After long and arduous attempts at recovery, I resorted to the "Paper Clip" boot from root method. Now I am pleased to say we are up and running again, but with 6.95 - for now I will give 7.0 a miss. A stable release - I don't think so.

Solved: Rebooting OpenElec and re-updating the NextPVR addon solved this.

Upgraded my Raspberry Pi2 to OpenElec 7.0 and now the TV/PVR feature won't work. The logs say:

ERROR: PVR - Add-on 'NextPVR PVR Client' is using an incompatible API version. XBMC minimum API version = '4.1.0', add-on API version '1.9.6'

Uninstalling and reinstalling the NextPVR addon doesn't help. Googling found the same error message here but it seems the error is in the packages? .

Solved: Rebooting OpenElec and re-updating the NextPVR addon solved this.

I have the same issue on a NUC6i5SYH - skylake based (freshly updated BIOS at default settings)

Using W32diskimager I created an installer stick.
That boots on the NUC. There I tried to install OpenElec V7 on several devices: USB stick, SDMC and HDD.

All show the same fault: mount_storage: mount_common: could not mount label=storage

I booted Ubuntu and used gparted to look a the the HDD. It shows two partitions, The boot partition is healthy, the 2nd partition appears to have a problem.
Gparted writes: unable to detect file system.

Here is a link to two fotos showing the boot fault and the gparted view of the HDD.

Any ideas what I did wrong and how I can get this too work?
