Me too, but never had a boot problem.
Are you saying that when you install latest 012 version with temp sensor enabled you can reboot continuously 20+ times?
Don't guess, try it first.

Yes, and i use in this moment "LibreELEC-S905.arm-7.0.3.012a.img.gz"
Why people need to reboot continuously 20+ times?
As a test. Before the temp-sensor disable build, I would need 20 boots to finally get LibreElec to boot. It would barely boot, from SD or internal NAND. Now with that build, I can reboot over and over and over. It's testing stability of it.
I updated to 012 today and it wouldn't boot at all, just stayed at android logo. After 10 cold boots it finaly booted. Then i installed non temp version and it works every time.
What is your soc revision, b or c?

How can you find your revision?
Yes, where do you get the revision number?
Now working for me! Yippee! As was pointed out in the threads above, it seems it is the temp sensor disabled mod that makes it work.
Although I had also used a different USB stick as well.
Let the testing begin
Since I had to leave my main U1 on all night rescanning the libraries, I'm going to install this on the NAND on my Bedroom U1 first. If I like it there, I'll then do the setup in the media room!
Thank you so much for the pointers. I'm glad to have the chance to experiment with LibreElec (was a long-time OpenElec user on my last device).
OK, now that I have LibreElec running on the upstairs U1, I would like to transfer it (complete with library and settings) to my other box.
I know I could just do a standard install on the other Neo U1 with the USB boot stick, however it seemed that the USB could hold persistent data in another partition.
So is there a way to back up the one unit's data onto that other partition so that the database and settings are the same when booting from the USB and installing?
Actually trying to work something else out now as well.
On the downstairs system, running from the USB, I am unable to get passthrough sound working via SPDIF. Is this a known Neo U1 issue?
I have it using passthru fine from Android on this AVR.
Basically my receiver is older, and doesn't support HDMI audio. So I have to run Optical to it.
Right now LibreElec is set to output 2.0 with passthrough enabled for AAC and DTS. However when I play a multichannel video file with mutli channel audio, I'm stuck at PCM48 sound :-(
In the Audio settings I have changed the device from ALSA AML-M8Audio, HDMI to PULSE default, Bluetooth Audio (PULSEAUDIO). When I do this I hear no audio at all.
When using the ALSA AML-M8AUDIO, PCM option I get PCM48 to the receiver, no surround audio - exactly the same as when using ALSA AML-M8Audio, HDMI.
One observation I have is that regardless of which of the 3 audio device options I choose, the Passthrough Device always says ALSA AML-M8Audio, HDMI and is greyed out so that I cannot change it.
There does not seem to be an option for SPDIF or Optical in the audio settings.
Before I install on my main system here, I'll need to be able to get multi-channel audio working, so any help greatly appreciated!
It might be easier to use UPnP library sharing from the upstairs U1 to synchronize library contents including watched/paused status with the downstairs U1. There should be plenty of info on the Kodi/LibreElec forums about setting it up but it is fairly simple to do.
Thanks for the suggestion. I had previously run a MySQL database on my media server. It worked fine, but fanart etc could be slow to load... But yeah, I'm probably getting off-topic with the library stuff here. The Kodi & LibreElec forums are definitely the better place to discuss those.
Main issue now is if the U1 supports SPDIF output when running LibreElec. That's what I haven't been able to make work yet - and if that doesn't, it will end up staying an Android box :-( I love the speed and responsiveness of LibreElec, so am hoping there is a way around this. Or maybe I'll just go out and buy a used AVR that can handle HDMI audio!!!
You're welcome. I didn't suggest MySQL as it is the more complicated option but if you've done so in the past, you should be fine. I always liked the simplicity of UPnP, though, it isn't perfect, either (nothing ever is).
Right, passthrough seems to be one of those hot-button topics. Can't post the links here but there are huge discussion topics on the Kodi/LibreElec forums.
