XBMC like system app on Android 4.2.2

I'm building a custom rom for UHost2 device and I'm facing the following problem:
If I manually install XBMS from apk file it copies apk to /data/app/ and libraries to /data/data/org.xbmc/xbmc/lib
Everything runs fine

But if I add it to the /system/apps then it doesn't copy lib files to /data/data/org.xbmc/xbmc/lib although it creates the folder.
if i try to start it it runs for the first time quite slow and than crashes. and after that it crashes every time I'm trying to run it

Am I doing something wrong?
Is it actually possible to add XBMC to the firmware so I would have XBMC pre-installed after factory reset?

The device is RK3066 SoC, 1GB ram, 4GB internal storage.

Then I run XBMC apk (installed as system) it does crash dalvik VM with this logcat error:

I/ActivityManager(  642): START u0 {act=android.intent.action.MAIN cat=[android.intent.category.LAUNCHER] flg=0x10200000 cmp=org.xbmc.xbmc/.Main bnds=[34,200][130,296]} from pid 1860
