OpenELEC XBMC 12.0 “Frodo” with Raspberry Pi Support


XBMC has released today the long waited XBMC 12 “Frodo”. It has support for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Android, Raspberry Pi, Apple TV and Apple iOS.I’ve already compiled it from Raspberry Pi (NOT OFFICIAL links below).

I’m sorry for the misunderstood, but XBMC source from OpenELEC is still aea93c3@25.01.13. Not the released today from XBMC Team. I’ll update on the sec they’re released.

I’ve compiled XBMC latest source (alpha-1.0) and merged it with OpenELEC RPi. This is my image, built by me. Use it at your own risk.

    E sabe como ligar o Openelec a um hotspot?

    Eu gostava de levar o meu Raspberry Pi para casa de um amigo só que a net dele é muito fraca, mas tem um Hotspot da Fon Zon na casa ao lado! Já tentei de tudo e não consigo ligar!
