OpenELEC provides builds for many different types of hardware; please read below carefully to select the correct one. Builds are provided in two formats; #1: Manual update files for existing installations (filename ends in .tar), and #2: USB installer diskimage files (filename ends in .img.gz).

If you are new to OpenELEC you might want to check out the installation guide on the Wiki.

Builds are status tagged as follows: [stable] refers to the current supported stable release. [beta] refers to the current beta release; these may contains bugs and experimental features. [candidate] is a release candidate; we believe it contains no bugs. [legacy] refers to older stable releases. [unofficial] refers to a builds that are not provided or supported by the OpenELEC project staff.

Generic Builds

Generic is a "catch-all" build for x86 (Intel/AMD) CPU systems. OpenELEC 6.0 (5.95.x) releases are available in 64-bit (x86_64) formats only whilst legacy builds (v5.0.8 and earlier) are available as both 64-bit (x86_64) and 32-bit (i386). Unless you have 32-bit hardware, use a 64-bit build (x86_64).

The nVidia driver in the OpenELEC 6.0 build does not support older nVidia GPU's including the popular ION (GeForce 9400m) card. If you have an nVidia GPU and see a message about unsupported GPU's after installing or updating to OpenELEC 6.0 please change to the Nvidia_Legacy build.

AMLogic/MX Builds (unofficial)

The OpenELEC project does not provide or support the AMLogic builds used with MX box hardware. They are available from other sources, but we have no knowledge of the OS changes made in these builds or the hardware they are used on. If you require support please contact the person who sold you the MX box, or use the forums you downloaded the AMLogic OpenELEC software from.
