Purchased the Jynxbox and was somewhat disappointed at first. The wifi antena is horrible, you want to use a cat 5 connection for this TRUST ME regardless what the box says your connection speed is, it is NOT!

Once you have it setup, immediately root it which you can do from the recovery screen. Careful, once your in the recovery screen, there is no way out of it till you root. So back everything up first.

Install MX Player, MX Player Codec arm6 & arm7

Launch MX PLayer, within settings select decoder: check mark S/W decoder (local, Network) Un-check S/W Audio. Now for CPU Core limit, set it to two as the Jynxbox is dual core. Color depth choose 16bit since we are using S/W decoding.

Now navigate to xbmxhub and locate the xbmc android download. Install this, and run it for the first time.

This should help you get the best 1080 resolution till someone tweaks XBMC to use hardware decoding on android.

Within Android settings, I specified the standard display screen size which for my gym screen its 720. I also set the Audio to RAW. This will help you TONS in regards to voice dropping out during playback.

Hope this helps,

John.

Jynxbox Android XBMC
I purchased this unit and I absolutely love it. it was very frustrating at first to get it working just right. There is not a lot of information out there quite yet, but it is growing rapidly.

It certainly doesn't work out of the box as everyone states. Now that I finally got it all tweaked it is a great little device. I am looking forward to the future when all the developers jump on it and start tweaking it even more.

The gyro remote is very difficult to get used too, but once you do, it is quite nice. There are times it doesn't respond like it should.
