you must create a empty update.zip archive on usb drive, connect it to device and run update from file.

I tried to boot from USB and I was testing LibreElect with KODI, but remote control and DVB-S not working

First, create LibreElec on usb drive.
Then, create archive named update.zip and copy to usb drive.
Next, You must run update app in Freesat GTC, and select update from file 'update.zip'

This cause reset and boot from usb directly

update.zip must by a archive without any files.

Look at this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOp5Q-YLjIQ

LibreElect works very fast, but I can't run DVB-S tuner on Kodi / LibreElec

Please be carefull and must looking for software for Amlogic S905D processor
