Hi, sorry I've been out rowing and only just got back to the computer!
@shutterbug Are you sure that you are writing the image to the eMMC (it will be 4G) and not the hard drive? Otherwise, maybe instead try using win32diskimager to copy the image to the 4G filesystem rather than using the LibreELEC writer...
@MikeBuzz The CM3L does not come with the OTP programmed sufficiently to boot the Slice from the hard drive. I've now got it booting on my desk, but require special software to achieve that.
@shutterbug Sometimes I find the somewhat strange use of the USB for Slice breaks the windows driver system so it can require you to reboot the PC if things go wrong.
NOTE: plug in DC jack, then uUSB this will give you access to the eMMC (using rpiboot)
Plug in uUSB only, this is give you access to the internal hard drive
Selling Slice 3 / pre-programmed CM3 / CM3L
It's not really up to me whether this happens because I'm not the one on the hook for the work to make the devices and sell them. This is actually done by Pimeroni, currently they are thinking of stopping production of Slice devices because it's not really making them any money (we're only selling the odd one a week!). Overall Slice has been a relatively large loss for everyone involved
I've been trying really hard to work with and support the LibreELEC guys because they have been trying to get Slice supported as an official build (it is after all an awesome piece of hardware made even better by CM3). So hopefully the path to builds / updates is open as we go forward
