Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?
It is indeed better to wait for a ready to use image unless you are ready to really hack by yourself.

Just to mention that there is a way to avoid blind tests and to understand why the kernel does not boot :
Change uboot and fex file in the 1st partition of internal nand to route uart signals to the micro sdcard connector and to get uboot prompt on the uart (explanation can be found here : http://elinux.org/Hack_A10_devices)
you will need a sdcard connector such as this one http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/...33183.html and a TTL UART to USB cable to get the serial console.

This is safe as in any case you have no way to brick forever your device as you can always recover with livesuit
This is exactly how I have done on my A10 tablet (except I made my own pcb instead of buying the usdcard breakout card coz it was out of stock)
Yet it is obviously the long and quite hard way to learn : Hopefully, you will get very soon ready to use image with no hassle...
