Looking For Old OSMC Kodi 16

I need an old version of OSMC Kodi. I need Kodi 16 for a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. Can someone help ?


I found this in my Downloads folder. It’s probably the last Jessie release OSMC

Thank you but I think the one I need is older.

Why do you need a specific version? Perhaps we can help another way.

For one thing, I am a big fan of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Too many times I have “updated” software only to have it either break completely or loose features that I use. In this case, though, it began because I run Kodi on two different devices - an older Raspberry Pi and an older Android TV box. I use a shared database so that they stay in sync. I couldn’t update the Kodi on the Android box so I was stuck with the older version [16] which works just fine for me. Now, I am replacing the Android box with another raspberry pi and, since this version 16 works fine for me as it is, I’d rather not knock it… I’m the odd ball out, I know…

I’d be surprised if scrapers from Kodi v16 still work.

You might have some luck on the Pi NOOBS archive.

So why not just clone the SD card?

They’re still working on the Kodi 16 I’ve got running now… What is the PI NOOBS archive?

I tried that, but the original Pi is a model 1. At least I assume that that is why the clone wouldn’t work?

Which version was it (I couldn’t tell without installing it)?

I couldn’t tell either to be honest. I’m only going by the fact that the latest image I have for the Pi 1 is 2015 and from what I have found online, that was Jarvis? If I get a chance, Ill load it on a card this weekend and see what version it is.

I got mixed up between Jarvis and Jessie (Debian). I’ll have another look.

Try this from late 2016. Krypton emerged in February 2017 so you should be right.

I´m not sure, but I think your version is for Pi2 not Pi1?

Yes, that is the version @rebeltaz needed for his “new” Pi.

Sorry I mixed some informations.

Thank you! That worked perfectly.

lol… I love how you put quotes on “new” :slight_smile: Thank y’all so much.
