  • Username: Username, on
    • OpenELEC/RasPlex/LibreELEC/PlexMediaPlayer: root

    • Raspbian/RetroPie: pi
    • OSMC: osmc
If you have done your settings just click on "Connect".If all greyed out buttons on the HyperCon SSH tab below are enabled now, you are connected!

Target IP HINT: If you don´t know it, search it with Advanced IP-Scanner (Windows only) you don´t need to install it, just use "Execute" and then click the "Scan" button. Now search for phrases like "openelec/osmc/raspberry" and type in that ip address listet there. Or you login on your router and search their for the dhcp lists.

Username HINT: You don´t need to login as user "root" on Raspbian/RetroPie/OSMC, just use the default.

NOTE: You could use this button also to UPDATE Hyperion to a newer version.


6. Now be patient (installation may take up to 5 minutes).
Afterwards you see the script output. If you see no "Critical Error" message, all went good.
It is possible that your system reboots now automatically!
