Are you serious? :)

That's the only way I've ever installed Rbej's updates, & it's one of the reasons I like OE.

When you're running OE on your RPI, & it's connected to your LAN, "Openelec" appears in the Finder's sidebar on your mac. Just open it, then open "Updates", & copy the 4 files from Rbej's "target" directory to that Updates directory.

Now reboot OE & it will automagically update :)

HTH.

yes I know but I would like a fresh install. Does it also update all the config files etc? or just kernel.

<freememorycachepercent>5</freememorycachepercent>

1. alwaysforcebuffer: This will force everything ran through dvdplayer to be buffered that would not be normal buffered except Optical Media. This includes SMB, Local Files, OS Network Shares, etc.

2. freememorycachepercent: The amount of free memory to use as buffer size. Please note that of the percentage of free memory used ~75% will be used for forward buffering and ~25% will be used for the back buffer.

Add to advencedsettings <guires>XXXX</guires>

XXXX = GUI resolution. 480p,720p,900p,1080p. <guires>720</guires>, <guires>1080</guires> etc...

Update Instruction:

wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Updating_OpenELEC

And actually one final request...would there be any way for you to create (or tell me how to create) an auto-update script that could be run from inside XBMC? (Or maybe some way to set the default auto-update to point at your builds instead of the original OpenElec builds?

Try this script...

Don't think so, because when I download Rbej Frodo Brench, that's not a image or do I miss something?

Or just copy the 4 files in the target folder to the raspberri?

Anyone that is experiencing corruption of their ext4 partition of their SD card during boot (for no obvious reason) or alternatively corruption of their kernel and firmware files when performing an auto-update, may be interested to know that in the latest Rbej builds there is now an attempt to determine when the SD card has not been initialised correctly, and to reboot the Pi if such a situation is detected.

An incorrectly initialised SD card has been, for me, the number #1 reason for ext4 partition corruption on boot (even if the partition has been cleanly umounted at the last shutdown), and also the primary reason why the auto-update process will write corrupted boot files to the SD card FAT partition, resulting in a non-booting system.

Enabling the "media check" feature has (for me) eliminated both of these problems entirely, at the expense of the occasional automatic reboot (about one time in 8). With the feature enabled you should not - under normal circumstances - not notice any difference or experience a slower boot sequence. However, if you do observe the effects of the media check, ie. a short delay and then an automatic reboot, consider it one partition corruption avoided (probably).

This "media check" feature can be enabled in recent Rbej builds (those as of Tuesday 19 Feb and later) by adding
iotimeout=5000
to the end of your kernel command line (in cmdline.txt).

I'd be interested to hear any feedback whether this feature is of benefit, or not. Consider it a safe - but very experimental - feature. :-)

Just use a stock image to write to your SD card, then update to an Rbej build by dropping the SYSTEM+KERNEL+MD5 files extracted from the target folder of the Rbej package into your Update folder.
