Full Version: Troubleshooting XBMC on UG007?

I realize the device is not on the compatibility list and I'm a complete noob here. Although, I expected to get further along before failure, so I'm wondering if there's something obvious that I should look at to get this software to run.

I have a UG007 which runs dual ARM A9 processors and a quad core GPU running Jellybean. I can provide more details, if needed.

I happened upon XBMC and thought I'd just try it. I downloaded and installed the app. Upon first run, I saw an initial setup screen, then it just dropped to the home screen. Now whenever I run it, it comes up black for a few seconds then disappears (back to home). I see the app is still running and anytime I switch to it, it just does the same thing.

I thought I'd look for some log file to see what's going on but several of the files mentioned here seem to exist on the filesystem. The device is "out of the box" and doesn't have an sdcard, would that cause failure since some files are listed as going on that mount?

I guess I'm not surprised at a failure since it's not probably a supported device yet but I sort of expected the app to at least launch and run, even if no media played. If anyone has any ideas, I'm happy to provide info or try some things out on this device.

Thanks for any assistance! Cheers!
ive got xbmc working on UG007, official rc3 seems fine altho ive heard xbmc with external mx player works better and will be trying it out, what build are you using?
I have tried RC3 on the UG007 but it still fails. It loads and then the screen is just black. Sometimes the UG007 reboots, other times not. Did you do anything else other than install the apk on the stock ug007?
no m8, just installed the apk from here and it ran without touching anything at all, what about trying the imito mx1 finless rom from freaktab.com if still no joy
here is the link, tempted to try it but as im not having any problems I'll stick with stock for now, http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php?3...-d-support
I am having a similar "black screen" on the favi smart stick (set top HDMI neon device).

I have tried reinstalling, different versions of XBMCAndroid (RC3, final) as well as combinations of different MX installs or no install. onthe 1st run of XBMC, i get the progress bar, but then black.

have you had any success, wheezl?

EDIT: through looking at several threads, I found this one on the XBMC Android board http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?ti ... pid1319447
I have confirmed that my k700 keyboard and receiver are the culprits. once i pull the USB receiver out, XBMC starts up just fine. now it will be a matter (I hope) of installing the patch and hoping developers are able to update XBMC/android in future releases.
