Requests from power users to share their own builds has been floating around. Its clear how such images might cause confusion all around the forum when people start to mix feedback from these releases with feedback from the official ones.
That said its undoubtedly helpful and very beneficial for development to get feeback and reports about yet to be released issues which helps in making official releases more robust (just check the bug reports and developer/user interactions on XBMC-Pivos github).
So instead of banning this, lets regulate it and keep everyone happy.
Here is the rules for now (pending changes):
- Keep all discussions about user built builds to this thread.
- Always post your build with a matching github commit label.
- Any mods or tweaks done on top of the master code needs to be listed.
- optional: use http://d-h.st/ to upload you image.
Thanks everyone for contributing in this and a special "thank you" to rapalax for the suggestion.

The update.img file always links to the latest build, but I will leave as many past builds as I can there. Build logs are also present in the buildlogs folder.
These images/logs are built and uploaded using a cron job at 0400 GMT daily (12:00pm local time). A new build will only take place if there have been commits to buildroot-linux in GitHub.
I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT THESE BUILDS DO TO YOUR DEVICE OR THE FUNCTIONALITY (or lack thereof) WITHIN!
