I cross compiled the latest OpenElect from their git development branch and tested it and it is better than what is on OpenElect's download page for the rpi2b. So I decided to cross compile an image for a sdcard for the wetek for techjunkie02 which he is trying to go through the image install process right now.

I decided to give a link here for my image if some one wants to test it and compare if it is better on the wetek also than their release on their download page for the wetek. I had jerky mouse issues when playing video on their current release image on their download page for the rpi2b and now it is smooth.

I do not have a wetek so I can not do any testing with the image.

I noticed one of many things updateded was this:

bump for kodi-15 final

File size:
98M
sdcard install

OpenELEC-WeTek_Play.arm-6.0-devel-20151009233230-r21388-ge2b6fef.img.gz

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-hVZ4SWSiuKb2VJZlFhVGViQTg/view?usp=sharing

When you get to the page click download and download anyway

If any one likes it and wants one I will cross compile a NAND install.

Very nice Darksky.   Installation of OpenELEC or any MicroSD card image is very easy for anyone wanting to try it for their Wetek Play.

The OpenELEC version for the WETEK is supported by the OpenELEC team and is specifically configured for it.   I haven't seen any issues with the mouse at all when using any of the later images for it.

This image is for the wetek if that is what you mean. I followed weteks compile guide for cross compiling the openelect devel-tree in weteks' forum. The name is a little different because it was compiled from the git. It is just a newer version of what is posted on their download page with big fixes and possibly new features / upgrades they are working on.

Yes Darksky that is what I meant that your image is for the Wetek.  They also have developmental builds posted on their forum with bug fixes to test the images out before a official one is posted.  It sounds like you basically made a developmental build with the latest changes in the git.  I could be wrong about that.  Pretty neat that you could build an image from the git.

Great work.

Emil

Thanks,

Your are right on point EMiNJ on the git build. Another thing I forgot to mention was my mouse scroll wheel did not work in their release version on the rpi2b in the menus. I had to drag the side bar all of the time. It now works for me with my build.

I have a question for you. I compiled the nand install and when it was done there was 2 .zip files both having identical naming except 1 has update before the .zip:

terminal.png 
 
The one with out the update in the file name has the same file names as the one you would download from OpenElec downloads:

regular .png 
The one with the update in the file name has 2 of the same file names but has others also. The 2 folders has 5 files
total in them. What is this update file for? I see it on the OpenElec download page as well.

It may have something to do with the boot-loader but not really sure.  I know it was needed to update to the newer Android OS in order for some of the latest OpenELEC to run on the card.  Some dependencies were updated that were needed.

When I was testing developmental builds for the ATSC tuner in the Android OS it needed 3 files on the MicroSD card to update the NAND.  It used the image's file, recovery.img, and factory_update_param.aml.  You would need the PIN to push in the little micro switch on the bottom of the Wetek to install them.  It looks like OpenElec to the NAND is installed the same way.

Here is a video of the update to NAND procedure.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USTCmnM-7KE

Personally I don't see the point in installing OpenELEC on the NAND.  The beauty of the Wetek Play is it being dual boot when using the MicroSD card and whatever image you decide to use on it with Android on the NAND.  

You can always install OpenELEC to a card and have the freedom to choice between it and Android on the NAND.

agree, what would be a practical reason to run openelec OS from NAND on an android device? Why would anyone bother?
I can't think of any either.
You would lose all the native android functionality,  not only that, there is always risk of the end user smokin their flash if they do it wrong... Now ur gettin in to tryin to bail them out with recovery, so on if they have no idea what they are doing, can be a real PITA....
Just sayin...

Thanks both of You. Things starting to get clearer now. Being that I have no device that has a NAND that flashes all of that is new to me. I defiantly will not be posting any file that flashes a NAND for sure now.

Your welcome voomvoom. Glad to hear it. There were some issues with my raspberry pi 2b was the reason I cross compiled an image for it with the latest updates in the first place; which fixed them. So I decided while I was at it I would make a wetek image also. And then my boy wanted the image on a bootable sdcard for his x64 so it would be portable so I made him one also.

I also noticed things were faster in OE too on my rpi2b with it.

I compiled the latest from the git today a sdcard image for my rpi2b and while I was in the mood I went ahead and compiled the same for the Wetek.

If any one is interested I will upload it and post a link. The new version has upgraded kodi:

Kodi 16.0 Beta 1 " jarvis "

The new expansion of a new 4:3 to 16:9 seems to be working good. You have to go into settings to enable it. (See pics)

FYI: The pics are taken from my desktop using kodi 16.0 in window mode.

New update files as of 11-17-15. All new file names are indicated in red.

New OpenELEC-WeTek_Play.arm-6.0-devel with Kodi 16.0-beta1 "jarvis" files for image on sdcard and an update file for an existing sdcard install. Also extra Kodi addon modules if need that has to be installed instead of OpenElec's if any are needed.

This looks like a complicated process but it is not really. I just tried to cover all bases.

Download oe_wetek_6-0_kodi-jarvis-beta1_11-17-15.zip from link below and unzip it. It will create a directory named oe_wetek_6-0_kodi-jarvis-beta1_11-17-15.zip. In the directory you will see 3 files:

# First file is for fresh install or testing on sdcard. Just be sure you unpack
# OpenELEC-WeTek_Play.arm-6.0-devel-20151117091615-r21566-gcd34ab0.img.gz
# before writing image to the sdcard using an archiver program.
# The file will then look like this when unarchived:
# OpenELEC-WeTek_Play.arm-6.0-devel-20151117091615-r21566-gcd34ab0.img

1. OpenELEC-WeTek_Play.arm-6.0-devel-20151117091615-r21566-gcd34ab0.img.gz

# The 2nd file is to upgrade existing install. If you are using my last image
# it should work ok. I had no problems using this file to upgrade here on
# my rpi2b. Copy OpenELEC-WeTek_Play.arm-6.0-devel-20151117091615-r21566-gcd34ab0.tar
# to your existing sdcard install to the /storage/.update directory. When
# your wetek boots up it install the file and reboot.

2. OpenELEC-WeTek_Play.arm-6.0-devel-20151117091615-r21566-gcd34ab0.tar

# The third file is all of the extra addons for this version of Kodi.
# OpenElec does not have this version for Kodi addons in their repo
# so I had to compile them. Just unzip wetek-extra-addons.zip to the /storage
# directory on your current install of OE and a new directory will be created
# named wetek-extra-addons with the addons in their own folder within it.

# On an existing install you will have to uninstall any of the OE's extra addons
# you may have installed and install the newer version in Kodi using:
# System ---> Settings --> Add-ons --> Install from zip file --->
# Home folder ---> wetek-extra-addons and go into the addon folder you want
# to install and choose it's .zip file and then configure it if needed in:
# System ---> Settings --> Add-ons --> My add-ons.

# An example is if you have OE's tvheadend installed which requires the extra pvr addon
# Tvheadend HTSP Client, you have to uninstall OE's version of Tvheadend HTSP Client
# you installed and install the my new pvr-hts version using "Install from zip file"
# in the Settings menu (This was the only extra addon that affected me here;
# I never installed any of the others below).
# FYI: When OE first loads up with the old Tvheadend HTSP Client it will disable the HTSP Client
# or the TV in System ---> Settings ---> TV or both. Check if the TV is enabled after installing
# the new Tvheadend HTSP Client if there is a error. They are bad about disabling the other if one
# is not installed or working right.

# If any of these addon modules need to be installed; use mine instead per instructions above:

adsp.basic                            audioencoder.lame             pvr.mythtv
adsp.biquad.filters                audioencoder.vorbis           pvr.nextpvr
adsp.freesurround                audioencoder.wav              pvr.njoy
audiodecoder.modplug         pvr.argustv                         pvr.pctv
audiodecoder.nosefart          pvr.demo                            pvr.stalker
audiodecoder.sidplay            pvr.dvblink                          pvr.vbox
audiodecoder.snesapu         pvr.dvbviewer                      pvr.vdr.vnsi
audiodecoder.stsound          pvr.filmon                             pvr.vuplus
audiodecoder.timidity            pvr.hts                                 pvr.wmc
audiodecoder.vgmstream     pvr.iptvsimple                      visualization.spectrum
audioencoder.flac                 pvr.mediaportal.tvserver      visualization.waveform

3. wetek-extra-addons.zip
