FW E2: OpenBH 5.0 for OCTAGON SF-8008 (31DEC21)

This latest project is now based on the OE-Alliance git and coding infrastructure, which means it is not only Open Source, but it is also compatible with all OE-A and PLi plugins, feeds, skins and it also features full online update support (for those users that do not like having to do a full reflash everytime there is an image update).

This means it has the Green Panel and Blue Panels as found in the previous Open BlackHole and the standard Black Hole images, we have also added the BlackHole addons panel and included Full HD skin support, OpenGLes Animations and theyhave included Kodi 17.1.

As with the standard Black Hole images, they continue to support Genuine Vu+ Boxes only and therefore our images are optimised for Vu+ boxes and will only work on these models (any openBH, Open BlackHole, or Black Hole images you see on the internet for other box models or clone models are not official images and we offer no support for those boxes or images).

Do I have to upgrade to this new openBH image ?

No you don't have to upgrade to the new openBH image, this image is completely separate from the original Black Hole image, this is simply an alternative image so we can offer our users more choice, if you are happy with your current image, then you can continue to use that image, if you want to try the new openBH image then you can do so.

Whats New:

You will need to reflash your box for this update, however you can use the settings backup option in OpenBh 4.4 to create a backup of your most important files, and then restore this in OpenBh 5.0, but please note that not all of your plugins will automatically be reinstalled, there are some that you might have to reinstall manually (nothing we can do about this I am afraid) and as OpenBh 5.0 is Python 3 based not all plugins will be compatible and may need updating by the plugin authors (please ask them to do that if required, we will not fix 3rd party plugins).

Thanks to:

  • Rytec, doglover and all the teams that host EPG feeds for EPG Importer, for their continued support.
  • All developers for their plugins used in the feeds of this image.
  • All of the BH Beta team for their hours of testing and dedication on improving the image.
