Kodi 17 local update date?

Hi all,

Does anybody have an idea how to figure out when I did the update to kodi 17? Timestamp of a certain (log) file? Version info file? Trying to match it to my latest automatic/manual backup of osmc/kodi 16.

Kodi 17 is useless without Crystal HD support and it seems to be an impossible thing to fix so want to prepare myself for a rollback. (last Kodi 16 is 2017.01 then, correct?)
Had hoped to make Kodi 17 my last version for good ol’ Apple TV silver. :cry:

Thanks. After seeing every possible update, I assume this is the correct one:

Start-Date: 2017-02-11 21:01:37
Commandline: /usr/bin/apt-get-real dist-upgrade
Upgrade: atv-mediacenter-osmc:i386 (17.0.0-2, 17.0.0-4), base-files-osmc:i386 (2.0.6, 2.0.7)
End-Date: 2017-02-11 21:03:51

This was update corresponds to 2017.02 therefore I need to get 2017.01 to get the latest Kodi 16, right?

Yes January Image is last v16 Image

If @Spinner re-appears and is willing to do lots of testing, I’ll try and re-add support for CrystalHD in v17.

I tried to get some feedback re. this from the community but understand people want to watch and use their AppleTVs with Jarvis rather than experiment with Krypton.

Was going to offer my spare Apple TV silver for testing but realized it doesn’t have a CHD in it.
Do you think it would be enough to test with a USB installed version without touching my SSD install on my primary ATV?
It’s been a while since I compiled stuff using Makefiles but would like to give a hand if I can (with some instructions). (I do Java coding these days, C/C++ a long time back)

That’s sufficient

Stay tuned


Hi, I’m little more than enthusiastic, but if you need a larger testing pool I have got an appletv with chd that I’m willing to break in order to get the old ATV boxes up to v17.

If any further testers are needed, I can also offer testing with an ATV1 with CHD.

I’m running via USB with a removed HDD, so swapping out test builds will be as easy as flashing a new USB stick if you can provide them in a disk image format.
