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.

Working fine on mine as well, Thanks.

Edit: looks like I spoke too soon, the App FC's if I try and use anything other than the remote.

alright.it works better as the original but i got often force closes when i look at my movies or my tv-shows.

maybe something with the download of the posters and banners.because it hapens when the 5 or 6 cover is loaded.again not usable but thanks for the work to get the earlyer error away.one step closer to a hopefully full working app for android...

edit: whats this? o0

Exeption: out of memory.we´re aware of this problem and we´re working on it.restarting the app should help.

thats new.never see this warning bevor.but no free memory on my gn?for sure... 360 MB left... coming again and again even after restart the phone or app...

Can you please test this build, which should fix this problem:

Running android 4.0.1 with sense 3.5 on my Sensation 4G,

I no longer get null errors or FC, but the buttons on the remote don't work.

I wanted to chime in and say the build here: http://www.multiupload.com/FBN9PHX5CJ is working on my GN 4.0.3 mostly fine. Full remote functionality, library seems to be functioning although it does crash consistently if i try to downloads tv posters or enter a subfolder for a tv show. I also just gave this build a shot: http://code.google.com/p/android-xbmcrem...signed.apk and it also seems to be working, remote works fine including volume, and i'm able to browse through TV in library mode without crashing, at least prior to downloading all of the art. Great work!

Hi,

i tried both Versions on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus S with stock Version 4.0.1 so far. Every time I try to download the Cover Information it crashes. While browsing the libary after some time it crashes too. My XBMC had been updated from nightly to Beta-1, so far no change.

For Debugging purpose: My Libary is stored in a MySQL Database and the Phone is Android 4.0.1 NOT ROOTED.

When I find so time to update i will try it with 4.0.3. Maybe theres a Bug with 4.0.1

so long,
crasher2k

I tried it on 4.0.1 with MySQL, seems to work but as soon as you enable SMS alerts and stuff the app dies, so I believe needs a bit more tweaking

Using a custom 4.0.3 rom the new apk works better. But not completely.

Statusbar notifications and using the remote functionality result in a force close. Also the option to WOL start a machine is missing and volume buttons don't work.

It seems OpenELEC-Generic.i386-devel-20111231013747-r9400 fixed my issues!

Remote works Laugh was getting tired of the html interface.

We've fixed a bug on XBMC's side that caused the Android problem as well. Maybe that's the reason it works with this openelec build.

So I'm fairly confident that this is the next release. Please test and report errors, if no show stoppers, I'll put it on Android Market tomorrow.
