I believe this is will get anyone the best results for HD quality and live tv streaming.

Instruction to load XBMC with external MX player and updated libRTMP:

1. Install the xbmcapp-armeabi-MX-v7a-neon-27.11.2012 XBMC

2. Locate the following folder: Android/data/org.xbmc.xbmc/files/.xbmc/userdata and copy the Playercorefactory.xml file to this folder ( i did this with my computer i put the SD card in my computer and put the playercorfactory.xml file in the directory stated very easy to do and it works great.)


3. Copy "librtmp.so" file to this folder: /data/data/org.xbmc.xbmc/lib (data is on the root of the jynxbox not the sd card).

All the files you need

just a quick question do you own the jynx box that i posted on youtube.. if so are you able to set the box to 1080p when i use it it starts to flicker so i put the quality down to 1080i and it works fine.......i havnt tried this method that u posted so i was wondering how it could improve the quality

Latest Jynxbox android update 20121208 & app package.
Xbmc with external player support included.

DOWNLOAD HERE: DepositFiles


Here is a link to a Linux image for any Amlogic 8726 M3. I'm about to try it on my Jynxbox. Download here

Save this file to the root of an microSD card.



unplug the jynx android.
using a paper clip press the button on the bottom of the jynx android...
while the little button is pressed plug it back in.
wait till you see a blue light to release the button... (this will boot it in upgrade mode)
press upgrade... select sdcard... select and press update.img
allow upgrade to take place you should see upgrade successful when it's done, if not you will see upgrade fail... (this could be from a bad or the wrong img file)
select reboot and allow the machine to reboot
first boot should take longer than usual (up to 15-20min)

That sounds very interesting! Please let me know how that turns out. Does it boot to text console or xwindows?
Is it based on a distro(Debian,Ubuntu,etc) or is it a custom buildroot image?

This sounds pretty cool I have a Roku box that I stream video off the web. I works great but if an android style player were to come out and be stable I might be pursuaded to switch. Also just letting you know that XBMC does have some pretty buggy plugins for it e.g. Hulu doesn't work for all videos in it. I know this from using it on my computer before I got my Roku. If a new interest was sparked these issues could disappear with official plugins from the video providers themselves.

This Jynxbox Android HD firmware has bugs in it that keep me from replacing my old Xbox with it full time. Its more a toy at the moment for me. Source codes would make it easier to track down and fix problems in it. (Anyone have em?)

That Linux image posted above is looking interesting. The boot splash says "XIOS DS media center" and it boots straight into XBMC for linux. (12.0-rc3 git:20130103-2318127) the jynxbox wireless internet works with this image, and the wireless remote works once you enable mouse support. USB keyboards work as well.
It connects to my samba server and plays all the videos I could try. (The jynxbox xbmc could not access my samba server and updated xbmc apks couldn't play my video files) so far its looking great.

Thanks phati for the heads up on that image. Where did you find it? Is there a public forum related to its development?
