OpenViX 3.2 Release thread

The worlds first Enigma2 team to bring you 1920x1080 full HD skin support, are proud to introduce a brand new ViX image for all OpenViX supported receivers

OpenViX 3.2 is based on the OE-Alliance v3.2 core. You cannot perform an online update to it if you are currently on Hades or any older image. You can flash image using USB method or using Image Manager.

You should be fine to restore a settings backup after you have flashed the image, this will restore most things to how you had it before.

There are many guides to flash/restore. Here is another

So what is different in OpenViX 3.2 then?
OpenViX Hades build 018 is the final build in the Hades series.

We are moving back to a numbered system for images. The numbering for the image comes from the actual branch of the OE-Alliance the image is built from. So as time moves on and things get updated/new branches created, we will bump the numbers to suit. Simple.

As with previous images, the main differences are core of the image or the OE (Open Embedded). This has undergone a lot of changes, updates and fixes. As a user you should not notice many differences between previous images and Openvix 3.2 (i.e. there are not many functional differences.)
