I am trying to install OpenELEC v5.0 (Kodi) on my Raspberry Pi B+. Strangely, I get the startup screen with Pictures, Music etc options but the UI just freezes/hangs after every single reboot.
I can SSH into the Pi properly and
top doesn't reveal anything unusual. If I am lucky, I get about a minute before which it freezes again. During the brief interval before it freezes, I have verified that CEC (remote control) and mouse work.
I use ethernet cable for connecting the Pi to the internet.
I have tried swapping HDMI cables, power adapters and even versions of OpenELEC with no luck. When I tried with OpenELEC v4.2.1 though, I get a few more minutes of operational time before it decides to freeze.
I have run out of all options here and would appreciate any help.
Additionally, my friend who has the model B, has successfully managed to run OpenELEC v5.0 without freezing.
