Hi this is the problem my android box came pre installed with xbmc on it only.So I cannot access Google play to install the apk like i do on my android phone.So I am royally screwed in that I only have xbmc to play with. Unless you know a way on this box to acess android apps as well as xbmc.i emailed the people who I bought the box off they said a lot of there customers just like a box pre installed only with xbmc.I just find it a total pain in the ass.
If you cant get in to the android part of it to remove the launcher that sends it straight o xbmc,then the only other option you have (if you want the full android functionality),its to do a fresh start and load your own xbmc on it (unless anyone else has any other ideas?)
But i have no clue as to what firmware/build etc goes with this box,as its sold by a seller so maybe best get in touch with them
From the homescreen where you have programs,do you not have a section in there that says android apps?
Or do you not have an android button on the remote?
This is from Matricom Midnight version wiki may be worth a try?,
1) Choose Programs->Android Apps
2) Choose “Settings”
3) From the left, scroll down to “Apps” and press “Ok”
4) Choose “XBMC” from the left and press ok
5) Select the option that applies below
Clear Data: This clears the data and cache for XBMC and makes it run like new
Clear Cache: This clears the cache
Clear Defaults: If XBMC replaced the home launcher, this resets the launchers
