But my girlfriend likes to watch Amazon Prime Videos …

How to downgrade from kodi 17 to 16?

just reinstall from repo the hint is in the krypton thread on how to


Assuming you followed this instructions ( [TESTING] Kodi 17 (Krypton) builds for Raspberry Pi (continued) ) to install it you just would need to remove the GMC repository from sources.list and then run
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rbp2-mediacenter-osmc=16.1.0-3

Crystal HD support in Krypton?

What are the actual commands for downgrading directly to 2016.06-2 ?


in the post before yours then just do apt-get dist-upgrade


sudo apt-get install rbp2-mediacenter-osmc=16.1.0-3
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Version ‘16.1.0-3’ for ‘rbp2-mediacenter-osmc’ was not found


Remove the added repo
Run apt-get update
Use apt-cache search to search for mediacenter-osmc. Inspect the version there.
Then pass that version to =

Thx, it brought me on the right way.


sudo apt-cache show rbp2-mediacenter-osmc

I was able to check the saved version, which actually seems to be 16.1.0-12

Then the command:

sudo apt-get install rbp2-mediacenter-osmc=16.1.0-12

worked absolutly properly.

Good thing to think about: if you don’t refresh the local APT cache of what it is available in the configured repositories, it will keep using the last known cache, even if the repos have actually been changed. Hence, you should always apt update after having changed the repos configured in /etc/apt/sources.list[.d] :slight_smile:


Yes, but if you don’t have the deb locally you’ll get an error when apt-get tries to fetch the non-existent package.
