Manual upgrades

Upgrades can be done manually :

  • in case you want to reinstall a previous version
  • in case the upgrades are broken
  • in case you want to upgrade to a custom version

To upgrade manually :

  1. download the file boot.tar.xz of the version you want. The official ones are available here : http://batocera-linux.xorhub.com/upgrades
  2. a .tar.xz file is like a .zip. Just unzip this file on your sdcard/usb key to replace existing files.

Or, starting with batocera.linux 5.23:

  1. from ssh, adapt the url to the right architecture and run : batocera-upgrade https://batocera-linux.xorhub.com/upgrades/x86_64/stable/last

For batocera.linux 5.7 to 5.22:

  1. from SSH the command line would be: /recalbox/scripts/recalbox-upgrade.sh https://batocera-linux.xorhub.com/upgrades/x86_64/stable/last (for PC x86_64, to be adapted to the right architecture)

These commands upgrade (or potentially) the Batocera system. Upgrading doesn't remove any of your data.
