Tried running frodo 12.3 on g-box Slav to no avail so ended up back with the stock rom works fine only issue is the CPU is running at 100% most of the time on. Would you say this is for the matricom release of g-box as some say there's no difference between the devices.

I thought the whole point of buying a gbox was the fact that it has its own proprietary xbmc version that is matched to the hardware?

I actually did install 12.3 and it failed, the picture jittered and flickered, once I went back to the stock version all was fine.

I like to know more about why this was suggested, maybe I'm missing something.

hey pal, yes i put this up for the matricom gbox and i can verify it for the matricom gbox cause i have tested it out, but i cant personally say for sure about the slav cause i havent tested it my self.

Hey Spanky just got my midnight set up the way I wanted (even did a fresh start) and then I errrrrr installed M....p and then got the blank screen. It worked great on my computers but not here. So unistall/reinstall of XMBC will dump all my prevoius settings? If so no bigger have the best wizards and install programs here for a fast return....to "normal".... Thanx
One more if I can steal my own thread: is this Matrix's own version when I do this (they say super xbmc) of xbmc or is it the Frodo 12.3 from this great site. Sorry newbie on board.

Thanks spanky on the how to on the gbox ..Just a question i did everything and installed gotham beta 3 works awesome and was wondering can you go with zero cache ? What will it do? Also i use hub wizard and i am guessing some apps will not work with gotham? Thanks for time and any recommendations :)

If installed with wizard... The apps will work despite XBMC marking them as incompatible. As to cache... It won't do anything for you on the MX2, in my humble opinion, just a placebo effect. :)

Again... Just my two cents.

Hi guys

loaded a flash on computer (xbmc.org APK) and shoved flash into g-box
open app installer and it says "no apk found" in external or in (also shows up) USB(A:)

humph


instead
installed it from the built in browser
it saves xbmc to apps

now if i can figure out how to remove the (old) icon from the dock?
