I own an A+ (that I just purchased this week), so I have no network.
This means I cannot use the network version of NOOBS, aka NOOBS LITE.
I want to install OpenELEC via NOOBS. How can I do that ?
All guides I find simply point me to NOOBS, but they don't seem to take into account that NOOBS seems to have dropped OpenELEC for offline setup, and only support it as a network install. And it seems that enabling Wifi in NOOBS is not exactly trivial either ...
I wonder if those who decided to drop all those OSs from NOOBS thought about, how much pain and disappointment this will cause.
What's next? Can I manually put together an offline NOOBS that includes OpenELEC somehow?
Yes, I had visited that page, too ... and I wonder if you noticed that the download links go to Error 404 Not Found:fruitoftheloom wrote: http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php/Insta ... spberry_Pi
Forget NOOBS. Download the image you want and write it directly to the card.kai-bcn wrote: Other than that ... I cannot find any mention of NOOBS on these pages either. NOOBS allows multi-boot, doesn't it? Is there no way to get OpenELEC + Raspbian, easily ?
Thanks, ame.ame wrote:Forget NOOBS. If you want OpenELEC download the image from here, write it to a micro SD card and boot.
Easily, no. I recon this is one of the reasons that you see it posted often that the A+ is not for newbies.Is there no way to get OpenELEC + Raspbian, easily ?
The hardest part of the A+ is when you have a WiFi dongle where the driver isn't in the base code that you install, you need a B+ or 2B to be able to install the driver using an ethernet connection before swapping the SDCard over to the A+.tpylkko wrote:Easily, no.

ah, i forgot that you are using RPi1 A+ without network... if you want to update your running OpenELEC 5.0.2 to a newer version, you can do that also manually by hand...beta-tester wrote:...
BTW: that OpenELEC is version 5.0.2 and was released 2015-02-09. use the OpenELEC internal updater to update to 5.0.8
