Is it possible to update?


#1

I Attached a screenshot from my Slice. I searched the forum to what version I could update my Slice. But the only conclusion I have it that I have to download and install it. The way i have to do it is rocket science to me. I’m not a Linux guy. I have no intention to install CM3, so this is not a solution either.

So is there a way to upgrade?

It’s not clear if you want cm3 or not there are two builds one for cm1 original a the other for cm3

Sorry. I saw it changed no to “to”. I have a cm1 and it works perfect. But I would like to update. I will checkout the link from chewitt. I was hoping for a simple update button. But i guess the slice team doesnt update the builds anymore.

Is this the only thing I have to do? I read the Flashing the Compute Module eMMC, but I think this is already there.

Manual Update for LibreELEC (CM1 or CM3) or Migration from SliceOS (.tar)

Copy the manual update .tar file to /storage/.update/ or the “Updates” samba share before rebooting the Slice box to start the update process. Please pay attention and download the correct file!

CM1 cards: LibreELEC-Slice.arm-8.2.3.tar (info)

Yes. That’s all there is to do.

Sorry to hijack this post but I am also in the same position. I am looking to update my Slice box as well. I am still running Kodi 15.2 and was trying to figure out how to update mine as well.

Do I need to backup all of my settings before trying to attempt the method described in the above link?


#8

Also how do I know which file to use? What is the difference between the CM1 and CM3 and which one is the right one for me to use?


#9

if you bought a slice you have the CM1. If you have a CM3 then you had to buy this separately and installed it by yourself.

Thanks for that, may I ask what a CM3 is?


#11

Sorry, me again.
I am trying to copy the file from here
https://libreelec.tv/downloads/fiveninjas-slice/
to the Update SMB file and keep getting a message saying there is not enough space for the file.
What am I doing wrong?

Slice only has 4GB internal storage and you’ll need ~2.5x the size of the LE update file in free space to do a manual update. If there’s not enough space when copying the file to /storage there is definitely not enough space to update :slight_smile:

It’s probably easier to make a backup to a USB drive and then clean install LE by re-imaging the eMMC (this also removes noobs which creates more space) then manually restore any essential items from the backup (it’s just a .tar archive, so easy to unpack).
