Great, you want to use OpenELEC. There are a few build options open to you now. If you know which one you need, download it from the options below. If not, you might want have a look at Why are there so many versions of OpenELEC?

Installing OpenELEC is easy, but if you're new to it then you might want to check out the installation guide on the wiki.

Overview
Number of Categories: 8
Generic Builds Files: 6

The Generic image is a "catch-all" build containing more drivers than any other image. If you have a home-built HTPC that is not based on ION, ION2, Intel or Fusion GPU chipsets, or you are going to install OpenELEC onto a laptop or desktop computer this is probably the best image to use. The Generic images may require a moderate level of post-installation tweaking to get items like sound configuration correct.

Raspberry Pi Builds Files: 3

The RaspberryPi build (RPi) is a build based on the ARM architecture to run on Raspberry Pi only. See our wiki for special installation instructions.

Apple TV Builds Files: 2

The mk1 (silver) AppleTV makes an excellent and cheap XBMC box, especially if upgraded with a Broadcom BCM970012 or BCM970015 CrystalHD card. This image is tailored to the very-specific hardware found in the Apple TV. OpenELEC uses the Nvidia graphics driver to support audio over the HDMI connection. Installing OpenELEC onto an Apple TV requires a different installation procedure to other HTPC platforms. To install read http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Installing_OpenELEC_on_AppleTV.

ION Builds Files: 1

ION and ION2 HTPCs typically have an Intel Atom or Core i3 CPU and an nVidia ION GPU. ION has been a popular platform for pre-built HTPC systems in recent years and is currently the most-stable and most widely used OpenELEC image. If you have older Intel Atom CPUs that support only 32-bit software use the i386 image. Otherwise use the x86_64 image.

Intel Builds Files: 1

This is NOT a generic image for anything with an Intel CPU, it is tailored for HTPC systems that use Intel GMA integrated graphics, Core2Duo or higher, including Sandybridge and and Ivybridge.

Fusion Builds Files: 1

Fusion HTPCs use AMD E350/450 (Bobcat) APU processors with integrated AMD Fusion graphics. Fusion is becoming a popular platform for home-built and pre-built HTPC systems. Initial teething troubles with XVBA accelerated graphics support in XBMC have been addressed and these are now considered stable.

Generic OSS Builds Files: 1

Like the Generic image the Generic OSS image is a "catch-all" build containing more drivers than any other image but with Opensource drivers for AMD/NVidia instead the binary ones. If you have a home-built HTPC with a older graphic card and the Generic build is not working for you this is probably the best image to use.

Arctic MC001 Builds Files: 1

This image has been developed in partnership with Arctic and has been tailored to support the Arctic MC001 hardware only.
