Openelec box, booting from SDcard? - Themadmax - 09-20-2015

Hi All
Iv had my openelec box (wetek) now 3 weeks and love it. The Misses loves it as does the daughter. Until today. The internal memory filled up and now its not letting us past the initial setup screen.
Think i can fix this but i really want to use the SDcard that i bought with it. We have a lot of TV Series that we watch for the daughter.

I have installed the SDcard image to the card but cant get it to boot from this at all 5.95.5. Just seems to boot every time to the internal version 5.95.3. I have read that i need to update the bios / android version but dont think this matters for the Straight openelec box only if you buy the wetek version which i don't have.

So guys HELP. The misses is starting to nag and once this happens the WAF soon drops.
Cheers

"boot from sdcard" does not work on wetek OE box. because bootloader is not the same as original wetek box.

first, you have to install wetek os (android) on nand. then you can boot openelec/openatv/whateveryouwant from sdcard

Ok thanks..

So is there a guide to move directories to the sd card or nas drive?
As my knowledge of linux is not that great i dont want to stuff it up even more.

Cheers
