OpenELEC 3.0 RC2


The second release candidate for OpenELEC 3.0 (featuring XBMC 12 ‘Frodo’) is now available (official announcement). There have been a flurry of changes over the past few weeks (over 275 by my count), but the OpenELEC team are saying that this will be one of the final release candidates before 3.0 final.

If you’d like to download an SD card image to install on a Raspberry Pi then it’s available from the official_images section of the Pi Chimney resources site. RC2 is 2.99.2, and later builds will be available from the same link.

To install the image first unzip it and then use Win32DiskImager (if on Windows) or dd (if on Linux or Mac) to write the image file to your SD card (which needs to be 1GB or larger).

If you’re already running OpenELEC on your Raspberry Pi then just get the release bundle from the download page, extract the files (using 7zip or WinRAR or similar) and follow the Manually Updating OpenELEC guide.
