Found a link to the apk on this YouTube video. Installs and opened on galaxy nexus 4.1.1

Jezz_X is actually a member of the XBMC team and I have added a few of his comments. Give thanks to him not me.

I managed to get a build of XBMC working on Tegra2's including the A500.This only works for SD content currently and hardware decoder support will be necessary to get 720p and 1080p support.

Please note the Tegra2 is an unsupported platform currently.

Touch optimized skin
Anyone running this on a tablet (phone too if you want but I don't care about that) want to give this skin I did a go

To install it get it on your tablet somehow by either putting the zip on your sdcard or just direct download it then run xbmc and go into system\addons and choose "Install from zip" and find where you put it

Being the guy on the XBMC team who actually makes the UI (read default skin) http://forum.xbmc.org/member.php?action=profile&uid=14997

I'm surprised as hell that you people are even trying to use it on phones at the moment
XBMC really is designed for tv use currently there are 2 touch screen skins (made by me again) but they still suck on something as small as a phone you really need a tablet at least for it to work half decent.

I guess its a gimmick factor for now that you can actually run it. But don't judge it too harshly unless your using it the way its meant to be on a TV

Yeah I know its just I've invested a lot of my personal time into XBMC of the years, and I hate the thought of anyone dismissing it just because they try to run it on a device that its not currently meant for and get met with a less than stellar user experience :crying:

Its part of the reason why we didn't just ship out apk's or put it straight onto the "Play Store" because its still got a lot of development to go before it really a daily use app. And everyone would just grab and install all the pre-compiled ones without even reading any informational posts about it and complain that its crap when really the main reason the source code is out is so other developers can help us make it lots better for the day it hits the play store

Thats just the way XBMC rolls :laugh: develop in the open and encourage other people to help make it better

Is the touch screen theme installed? I can get it to launch but I can't seem to control anything on my NookColor, was wondering if that might be the issue.

Also, where does the app store its settings? The .XBMC folder (in Linux) or the XBMC folder in applications data (on Windows) where the repositories addons and themes are stored.
