Has anyone tried out the new setting introduced with M2P 2.51 to enable a 64 Bit Kernel on their RPi4?
M2P 2.51 > Raspberry Settings > Enable 64 Bit Kernel (Pi4 ONLY)
I have an RPi4 4GB now and am already very happy with its performance using the old 32 Bit Kernel.
I am hesitant to try because of the potential stability issues disclaimer on the settings page:
This improves performance but might be not as stable as normal 32 Bit mode.
Also, I am wondering about the possibility of higher temperatures – currently, my RPi4 is in a Flirc case and runs continuously at around 47°C.
Thanks for any user reports!

I tried it now myself, but made a backup image of the SD card first – which was a good idea:
After enabling „Enable 64 Bit Kernel (Pi4 ONLY)“ on my RPi 4 with 4GB RAM, it would no longer boot and I had to restore the backup image.
Heiner or anybody from the M2P team, any idea what the issue might be?

It is still a new feature and there might be some issues. Which plugins do you use?1. November 2019 at 8:50 #47459
Thank you for your reply. Enabled plugins are:
Max2Play Active Plugins:
– Settings / Reboot
– Squeezebox Server
– Filesystem Mount
– WiFi / LAN
– Raspberry Settings
Squeezebox Server Active Plugins:
– Full Text Search
– Network Test
– Random Mix
– Save Playlist
– UPnP/DLNA Bridge
Regarding hardware, it is the RPi4 only – there is no dedicated soundcard. I am running Max2Play with Squeezebox Server, and transporting the music to an external Streamer with DAC via the LMS UPnP/DLNA Bridge plugin.
