OpenELEC Dual Boot on PC

How to dual boot(actually Triple boot) OpenELEC with Ubuntu and Windows.

  • OpenELEC itself requires at least 2 partitions.
  • Create the first partition, EXT4
  • Label it 'OE_SYSTEM', size 512MB to 1GB.
  • The OE_SYSTEM partition must be flagged as bootable.
  • Both operating system files, SYSTEM and KERNEL, must be placed into the OE_SYSTEM partition (assume /dev/sda6)
  • Create the second partition, EXT4
  • Label it 'OE_DATA', size.
  • Here all local OpenELEC/XBMC data will be placed, such as databases and thumbnails (assume /dev/sda7)
  • Write down the linux drive letters & update the below file with it
  • Unlike Grub, Grub2 starts partition counting from 1 not 0.
  • Now update Grub2:
sudo gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom
#!/bin/sh
exec tail -n +3 $0
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.
#
menuentry "OpenELEC" {
   search --set=root --label OE_SYSTEM --hint hd0,msdos6
   linux /KERNEL boot=LABEL=OE_SYSTEM disk=LABEL=OE_DATA quiet
}
menuentry "OpenELEC debugging" {
   search --set=root --label OE_SYSTEM --hint hd0,msdos6
   linux /KERNEL boot=LABEL=OE_SYSTEM disk=LABEL=OE_DATA debugging
}

Now finalize the grub menu additions:

sudo update-grub



LibreElec Shutdown Button

Source: libreelec.tv, lowpowerlab.com, libreelec.tv

  • Install Raspberry Pi Tools from libreELEC UI:
Program ---> Get more ... ---> Raspberry Pi Tools ---> install
  • Create shutdown script:
nano /storage/.config/shutdown_pi.py
#!/bin/python  
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO  
import time  
import os
import sys

sys.path.append("/storage/.kodi/addons/virtual.rpi-tools/lib")

# Use the Broadcom SOC Pin numbers  
# Setup the Pin with Internal pullups enabled and PIN in reading mode.
GPIO.setwarnings(False)
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)  
GPIO.setup(3, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down = GPIO.PUD_UP)  

# Our function on what to do when the button is pressed  
def Shutdown(channel):  
  os.system("poweroff")  

# Add our function to execute when the button pressed event happens  
GPIO.add_event_detect(3, GPIO.FALLING, callback = Shutdown, bouncetime = 2000)  

# Now wait!  
while 1:  
  time.sleep(1)
  • Create Autostart Script:
nano /storage/.config/autostart.sh
#!/bin/bash
(
/storage/.config/shutdown_pi.py
)&
  • Make files executable
chmod +x shutdown_pi.py 
chmod +x autostart.sh
  • Enable UART for the Status LED:
mount -o remount,rw /flash
nano /flash/config.txt
enable_uart=1
  • Reboot

Pi shutdown switch.png
  • Install Raspberry Pi Tools from CLI:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install python-pip python-dev gcc python-setuptools wheel
pip install rpi.gpio
  • Create shutdown script:
nano /home/osmc/.config/shutdown_pi.py
#!/usr/bin/python3
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
import time
import os
import sys

sys.path.append("/storage/.kodi/addons/virtual.rpi-tools/lib")

# Use the Broadcom SOC Pin numbers
# Setup the Pin with Internal pullups enabled and PIN in reading mode.
GPIO.setwarnings(False)
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)
GPIO.setup(3, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down = GPIO.PUD_UP)

# Our function on what to do when the button is pressed
def Shutdown(channel):
  os.system("poweroff")

# Add our function to execute when the button pressed event happens
GPIO.add_event_detect(3, GPIO.FALLING, callback = Shutdown, bouncetime = 2000)

# Now wait!
while 1:
  time.sleep(1)


  • Make files executable
sudo chmod +x shutdown_pi.py 
  • Test Script:
./home/osmc/.config/shutdown_pi.py
  • Auto Start as a Service

Create systemd service file:

sudo nano /lib/systemd/system/shutdownpi.service
[Unit]
Description = GPIO shutdown button

[Service]
Type = idle
ExecStart = /home/osmc/.config/shutdown_pi.py

[Install]
WantedBy = multi-user.target

Enable the service:

sudo systemctl enable shutdownpi

Start the service:

sudo systemctl start shutdownpi


  • Enable UART for the Status LED:
sudo nano /boot/config.txt
enable_uart=1
  • Reboot


Patch for MPEG2 & VC1 Codecs

Source: reddit.com

  • Convert Binary to Hex & grep the file contents:
xxd -u start_x.elf > start_x.elf.hex
grep '47 *E9 *33 *36 *32 *48' start_x.elf.hex
  00b9db0: 47E9 4341 4C46 2118 47E9 3336 3248 1D18  G.CALF!.G.362H..
  • Backup files:
cp /boot/start_x.elf /boot/start_x.elf_backup
cp /boot/start_x.elf ~/start_x.elf
cd ~
cp start_x.elf start_x.elf_backup
  • Convert \x1D\x18 -> \x1D\x1F:
perl -pne 's/\x47\xE9362H\x1D\x18/\x47\xE9362H\x1D\x1F/g' < start_x.elf_backup > start_x.elf
diff start_x.elf start_x.elf_backup              # This should show binaries are different
  • Replace the binary:
mv ~/start_x.elf /boot/start_x.elf
reboot
