Have you seen the news? Raspberry Pi 2 is out and gues what?
It’s AWESOME! Quad core processor and 1GB of ram makes this thing fly over movies, and be the greatest media center to ever be under my TV. While I’ve been used to Raspi 1 occasional slowness and still loved it, this has no sign of slowing. Highly recommended.
We get a ton of emails whether RPI2 works with lightberry, it does, however we have to make an alteration to openELEC as it comes with SPI disabled. It’s fairly simple process (as described below) but The Simple Way ™ is avaliable here.
It’s required for Raspberry Pi 2 only.
Let’s get to it, first, start either with fresh openELEC installation on modify your current one. Plug your sd card to computer and open it. Place enable-spi-overlay.dtb file in overlays folder in main folder of SD Card. Then open config.txt in editor that recognize linux endings. Add below line to the end of the file:
And viola, safely remove from computer, put in your RPI2, boot and enjoy :)
