Kodi Leia 18.4, TwisterOS is an armbian mainline based build with themes and eye candy stuff, retro gaming apps, x86 and x64 emulation and video reproduction with panfrost graphics acceleration on desktop that works out-of-the-box. It runs great too. If you’re looking for something simple maybe Vanilla Armbian is best for you. There’s only one way to find out…

Is it possible to test Heroes 3 or Heroes 5?

We haven’t done it yet, Heroes 3 has an open source implementation.

Yeah i know,but it’s was laggy with 4.4 kernel with drm drivers from rk

A full TwisterOS Armbian 2.0.3 image (2.5G) is now available for download from TwisterOS website .

Does the 2.0.3 patch need to be applied to the new full TwisterOS Armbian 2.0.3 image?

It does Not, you either do one or the other, never both.

  • TwisterOS Armbian 2.0.3 patch is provided to people who have TwisterOS 2.0.2 already installed and wants to update to latest version without wiping out any data.

  • TwisterOS 2.0.3 full image is provided for those who wants a full OS to be flashed into uSD(microsd), eMMC or NVMe and don’t mind about previous contents on storage media because those will be deleted it.


Im sorry but again - Is it possible to share some instructions for building Kodi on ARM platform like Armbian?
because box version of kodi which can be installed on vanilla Armbian via apt - it is Debian patched version and it has some issues.
so I decide to build my own version but dont know how to do it on Armbian.
I’ve googled a lot but found nothing working.
Thank you in advance.

Sorry we don’t provide that kind of support here. You may be asking in the wrong forum for it.

Box64 has been officially released. Box64 public repository is now available.

Box64 obviously will be included in next TwisterOS Armbian version.

Many thanks to Ptitseb from the TwisterOS Development Team
