How to check which core elec is running

To check which version of CoreELEC you are currently running on your device, you can follow these steps. CoreELEC is a dedicated lightweight operating system for running Kodi on popular Amlogic hardware. Knowing which version you’re running is essential for troubleshooting, upgrading, or simply staying up-to-date with the latest features.

  1. Through Kodi Interface:
    • Launch Kodi on your device.
    • Navigate to the System menu. This can typically be found on the home screen and may be represented by a gear icon.
    • Inside the System menu, look for the System Information option. The exact location might vary depending on the skin or version of Kodi you’re using. In some skins, it might be under System Settings > System Info.
    • In the System Information section, you should find details about your system, including the CoreELEC version number. It’s usually listed under the Version info or similarly named field.
  2. Via SSH (Secure Shell):
    • If you’re comfortable using command-line interfaces, you can SSH into your CoreELEC device. This requires an SSH client (like PuTTY for Windows or the Terminal app in macOS and Linux).
    • Ensure SSH is enabled on your CoreELEC device. This option is usually found within the CoreELEC or Kodi settings.
    • Use the following command to connect to your device (replace your_device_ip with the actual IP address of your CoreELEC device):
ssh root@your_device_ip
  • The default password is usually coreelec.
  • Once connected, enter the following command to display the CoreELEC version:
cat /etc/os-release
  • This command will show you a file containing various details about your CoreELEC installation, including the version number.

Choose the method that best suits your comfort level and access rights. Knowing how to check your CoreELEC version can help you with updates, troubleshooting, and getting support from the community.
