XBMC Launcher

XBMC Launcher


XBMC Launcher is a helper app that allows you to set XBMC as your launcher without modifying the XBMC app. Should work with any version as long as the main activity name in the XBMC app remains the same.

Currently supported XBMC variants:

- XBMC (Official)
- MINIX XBMC
- Beyond XBMC
- Plex
- OUYA XBMC
- SPMC
- Wasser XBMC

Requires: XBMC for Android (http://xbmc.org/download/) or one of the supported XBMC variants

Source code: https://github.com/blunden/XBMCLauncher

NOTE: Other apps can be launched from the Programs option on XBMC's main menu.

Version 1.0 mistakenly supported Android versions lower than XBMC does. For those who sent in bug reports anyway, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Recent changes:
Version 1.4:
- Add support for Wasser XBMC

Version 1.3:
- Select XBMC variant to start (XBMC, MINIX XBMC, Beyond XBMC or Plex)
- Manage Launcher defaults and uninstall/troubleshoot
- Fallback to new settings menu if XBMC variant not installed
- Make launcher shortcut open settings
- Remove the implicit touchscreen requirement

Version 1.2:
- Reset the default launcher preference if XBMC is not found.

Doesn't work Simply won't pop up the option to choose a launcher. I've tried everything I can think of. Too bad there's nothing within the app that makes it happen. Tried uninstalling. Also running regular xbmc gotham.
