Latest update wants to remove OSMC?

This output worried me, so I thought asking here first:

If I update all these packages, and atv-device-osmc, atv-mediacenter-osmc, among others are removed, how can I get OSMC back?

Hi,

Unfortunately, there are no longer any further updates for Apple TV. See https://osmc.tv/2017/09/saying-goodbye-to-apple-tv/.

We removed the updater from My OSMC for that reason. By updating via the CLI, you’ve attempted to update to newer OSMC packages which are not supported. You receive the removal messages because we no longer build the i386 binaries, as we no longer have any i386 hardware supported.

Thanks Sam,

So, if I were to go it alone is there some other alternative, or some documentation I could follow?

There’s not much documentation, but you have all of the OSMC source code on GitHub.
You can also just stay on an older version of OSMC. It won’t stop working, we have just stopped updating it.

I also ran into this issue when I tried to update to Debian Stretch to get the latest package of squeezelite 1.8-4.
I’ve found a work around for it.
When you first time run "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"
OSMC will update latest jessie package and also update /etc/apt/sources.list as below

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch main

Just change the last line to

deb http://apt.osmc.tv jessie main

then run

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

you will be able to upgrade to Stretch packages and keep the OSMC package in your system.
Hope this can help someone wants to do the same.

This is not supported however; and you may experience adverse effects from doing this.

I understand this is not a proper way to get things done but end of support for ATV1 leave me very few choice.
This is just a way to get what I need with minimum effort.
I also hope someone can help make a new build of OSMC for ATV1 with latest Debian Stretch. it’s just exceeded my capability.

I suspect Sam refers to landing sooner or later in some dependency hell and library clashes which will break osmc. I guess this can be managed through regular back ups, but its a hassle. For some of us ATV1 is still a useful box for playing music and low(er) definition videos, as well as using Linux to set up a networked log server, back up server, VPN gateway, etc.

However, with Meltdown and Spectre it will need migrating to a later kernel asap.

I am not familiar enough with Debian, especially since its move to systemd. I’m also not up to speed with ATV1’s HFS boot partition and the boot mechanism for OSMC. I was hoping for a ‘how to’ with guidance on installing OSMC. If this was made available I could give it a go at keeping ATV1 running with the latest Debian release and as long as I am using it myself I would of course share the binaries with other users.
