 +
 +====== Manually Updating LibreELEC or Cross Update from OpenELEC ======
 +If Manual update option is selected then you will need to download the update to LibreELEC. This is ideal if the LibreELEC machine is not internet connected as you can download the new software package on another machine and provide the file to your LibreELEC.
 +
 +First of all, head over to the downloads page and download the latest release of LibreELEC. You will need to download the standard software package, not the disk image version.
 +
 +Now, from your PC, open an Explorer window and browse to the IP address of the LibreELEC machine (if you don't know what the IP address of your LibreELEC box is, go to the menu of the LibreELEC machine, and browse to the main item "​System"​ and then look at the subitem "​System Info". This will open a page that shows the IP address amongst other information.
 +
 +So type this into the address bar of the explorer window. For example, if your LibreELEC machine'​s IP address is 192.168.1.92,​ browse to:
 +
 + ​\\192.168.1.92
 +
 +Once the window appears, open the "​Update"​ folder share. There shouldn'​t be anything inside this share, unless you have another update pending. Copy the downloaded LibreELEC software (for example: LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-5.0.0.tar) to the folder.
 +
 +Once the file has been copied, reboot the LibreELEC machine. LibreELEC will recognize the new software package in the update folder and update automatically. A second reboot will follow automatically to activate the new system files.
 +Using SCP or SSH
 +
 +This is for more advanced users. If you did what is described above, you don't need to worry about this. If you are not using the method described above, it's good to know that the folder where you need to place the software package is /​storage/​.update.
 +
 +Then you can use SCP to copy the file or run wget on the LibreELEC box itself.
