These new files below will bump up to Kodi BETA7 in the OpenElec 8.0 (My last post was BETA1). I would think that it should be in the last stages of being a beta and should be close to be a release and they have it pretty well polished by now.These three files are for the Wetek Play Only:
First file is for upgrading my last image To Wetek 8.0 using Kodi BETA7.
Second file is a complete OpenElec OS image for a new/fresh install for Kodi BETA7.
Third file are 47 official kodi addons for the above two files (pvr, codecs and screensavers)This first file is for upgrading my last Kodi image I posted here 4 months ago for the Wetek Play only.
This was my old OpenElec image for FYI:
Kodi 17.0 BETA1 (Krypton)
Put this next file linked below on yor existing OpenElec image I made in its /storage/.update/ directory and the next time your wetek play boots up it will install the upgrade and reboot into the new OpenElec Kodi 17.0 BETA7.
It looks like they have changed the API again so your existing pvr addon for tvheadend (pvr.hts) most likely will not work so you will have to uninstall it in Kodi and install the new one I compiled in the wetek-play-p8-addons.zip file below. The wetek-play-p8-addons.zip file has several other addons in it also. Copy the wetek-play-p8-addons.zip file on the OpenElect sdcard under the /storge/ directory and unzip it. Then while booted into Kodi go to your menu for addons and find "Install from zip file" in the menu's then find wetek-play-p8-addons/pvr.hts/pvr.hts.zip and click on it. Make sure that the pvr.hts addon is enabled and the ip address is correct for the tvheadend backend in the pvr.hts addon Config.

Burn OpenELEC-WeTek_Play.arm-8.0-devel-20161231182723-r23708-g0060defbd.img to a newly formatted fat32 sdcard (use a class 10 sdcard for best performance).
Safely unmount the card and stick in you Wetek Play.
On the first boot it may look like it is not doing much because it is expanding the file system to use all of the the sdcard's space. When it is done it will reboot into Kodi.

A side note:
While I was looking at the new OpenElec source tree I had cloned I was looking at all of the new make targets and it looks like Wetek is really starting to put out a lot of new models:
If some one has one of these others and wants me to compile OpenElec 8.0 with Kodi 17 Krypton for it's architecture let me know and I would be happy to. Although it takes an enourmous amount of time compiling; all I have to do is start it before I go to sleep and it will be ready the next mourning.
