Need to spend more time on this. Since I don't have a Galaxy Nexus that time is limited, you guys need patience.

Sounds like a simple bug to fix. Can I get the source somewhere?

Freezy i also got a nexus s, it worked flawlessly with custom ICS, but with the OTA i can't get it to work. Same problem as the Galaxy nexus guys have, so try running stock ics and you will be able to reproduce the problem.

There are some small problems in the code and it's not prepared for Android 4.0 yet. I'll need some more time to figure this out. I've never seen the code of this app before, so I need to find my way in it first. It's pretty well written though Smile.

I thought the error would be caused by incorrect handling of a returned XBMC response. This still might be the case (maybe character encoding or a outdated library), but it's not as obvious as I hoped.

good to hear this Smile so i think or better say i hope we can work again with this app within this year.
When you update it to 4.0 then it works on every ics (4.0.1/4.0.3)?

because with 4.0.3 android get a new api lvl (15) and i´m on it.
Sorry for the questen but i´m not a programmer so i don´t know

Hopefully Smile. Every new version gets a new api version number. If I can fix it for 4.0, it probably will work with all 4.0.x version. If not it will be pretty easy to fix.

Check out http://code.google.com/p/android-xbmcrem...0Milestone

The problem has been identified with the xbmc http server not following the RFC and the new ICS httpurlconnection code breaking when trying to reuse connections.

Check discussion here for more recent updates:

And no, it's not an easy fix, the NPE is just a insignificant symptom of the real problem.

install the app from this link " http://www.multiupload.com/FBN9PHX5CJ " , the app run on my nexus s 4.0.3 and for now i haven't problem .
I compiled the app and has been fixed using the fix from comment http://code.google.com/p/android-xbmcrem...id=581#c30.
maybe this isn't a good long term solution but for now is better of nothing.
all here we are waiting for a offy fix ^^ i hope we will see the new app soon.
