Here is my suggestion:
- Android is a great operating system. I have it on my phone, as it allows me to do nearly all I can on a PC. But, with that expanded flexibility comes complexity.
Now, for XBMC, I go all the way back to the XBOX days. While the XBOX Gen1 was a nice gaming platform, the only real thing that I used it for was XBMC.
Now, I told you all that, to say this: Dump android, download a Linux nightly from https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qfsqqow67m8hawp/f4vOpoVCKO , and re-flash that bad boy.
Sure, you loose android "play" and the apps there... but did you buy that box for XBMC, or to try to make it an underpowered PC... or a phone without calling?
Linux makes it easy, XBMC in Linux makes it great.
Re-flash it, start over, and some of your preferred applications within XBMC will likely work great.
Finally, ixnay on the iratedpay ediamay...
XBMC is a platform for playing your legitimately owned media. The folks that moderate the boards do not take well to discussing third party apps that are copyright questionable.
So, reload with linux, make sure that it work well using this forum or http://www.pivosforums.com/viewforum.php?f=25 ... and go to the forums that then support those third party apps... there, they will provide assistance.
but not here.
And sorry about the other talk, I'm a huge noob n thought all was ok
I'm so confused on this crap tho, should I sill go woth the linux seeing as there's a new ver. of android apk (forgive me if my lingo is wrong, I feel like bambi trying to learn to walk...lol) aswell as a new xbmc build
I saw the firmwares on pivos page n am lookin for videos on how to flash as I am lost...lol
I haven't used this bix I havent along time and I dont want to give up cuz I see on here u guys are doing all u can to help get things going
I'm hoping these new updates will help a bit more with the device
Thanks again guys
