Thank you for experimenting. I don't think the Playstore has the regular XBMC media center; you may have tested the XBMC Remote app or something similar.

XBMC for Android can only be downloaded here:

http://xbmc.org/download/

I'm still looking for a Kit Kat build that is compatible.

Thank you again.

apps crashing...
Found somewhere else on XDA

Kindle app crashing has a workaround: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3#post48928053
Short answer:

download Build.prop Editor from the Play store and use it to change the ro.product.manufacturer line from Amazon to Samsung.

I downloaded and successfully installed the XBMC app from the link you provided. It went through the 'preparing for first run', I am able to swipe through various bits of the menu...I see scrolling news at the bottom. I was able to use the Weather app. Appears to be working. Not sure what else I could do or test with this app.

edit: I added a couple of 'channels' like HGTV and DIY...I was able to start playing/streaming a show on the HGTV channel.
edit2: forgot to mention, it flips the screen 180, but when you turn the tablet to reorient, it sticks, it doesn't flip back.

You are great. Your experiments have convinced me to install Carbon Rom and go from there. Many thanks.

Good to have another option
Loving the other KitKat Jem ROMs here as well, I appreciated your comment about wanting to keep this device section from getting too boring! Glad to hear there's still activity on the LTE front, although I realize that's a tricky one. I'm not expecting miracles here, just glad to hear about the interest. Thanks for all of it!

Any updates on LTE or general Rom updates?

All builds I've been trying have failed. I'm trying to the issues, but I have finals. Expect some through the summer.
