Exclamation Is there working xbmc with nexus 7 kitkat?

Hi to all. I have problem with xbmc and my nexus 7 2013. After update of kitkat it seems that the only working versions are the latest night builds of gotham xbmc. But almost all addons are incompatible or videos not working. Is there any pached froyo or gotham version working with addons?

I am going to try to find a working version tonight. I can tell you about Gotham that when it says things are broken in repository, its not really true. The addons just have not been updated to reflect gotham, but when it asks you if you want to disable the addon, just say no, most will still work. Use the xbmchub wizard to make things easier.

if addon is not compatible i can't even install it! Broken is different case.With last updates in nightly builds almost all addons are incompatible, not broken. When you make your tests too please inform me.

xbmchub gives the same or worst results...

That nightly is the 11/14 or 11/15 nightly. My tablet died and I got busy with an emergency right now so I don't know what nightly I have on my nexus 7 but was able to use video add ons before with no issue. The program NaviX was force closing on me when I picked a play list. I get the messages that addons are incompatible, do you want to disable them, I choose no and they still work fine.

I also can't find a decent one that doesn't begin telling me everything is broke or not working/compatible. They say they will have a working version for all android platfoms soon. I doubt it.

Any updates on this? I just got the nightly working, but every (most) plugin is incompatible and won't let me install them.

I'm using the latest nightly (xbmc-20131211-210cf9f-master-armeabi-v7a.apk) from the 11 December from http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/xbmc/ni...s/android/arm/

Most of the add-ons do not work but I haven't had any issues with sound on video playback like most of the other versions.
