Make a Kodi TV box with an Odroid XU4, version 2.0

Post by yimyom »

Hi all,

I've updated my guide on how to set up Kodi on ODroid XU4 with plenty of new and modern features:
- it's now based on Ubuntu 20.04 (the latest version available so far on the HardKernel website),
- it uses the Linux Framebuffer directly with OpenGL ES hardware-acceleration. So it's very light, no more X11 server or even Wayland.
- the procedure is much simpler and makes sure time, sound and all what is required for Kodi works perfectly.
- it still provides an OpenSSH server and the XU4 box can be used as a server at the same time as Kodi.

You can read it here: https://github.com/yimyom/odroid-xu4-setup

Feel free to contribute, fork, use and reuse, comment and even donate if you wish to support my work.
And of course, do not hesitate to contact me to ask questions and offer suggestions.

Enjoy,
David
