Hi Renebeek,Here it's the same. I think this device is a really nice project. Maybe the staff has other jobs to work on for this device, but, like you, if it would be possible, it would be great to raise the priority for this point.
My goal is to use it as miniHTPC as soon as possible and leave it always on and it's the reason I've purchased it. Here other friends are ready to purchase it for the same reason, and many other people too!
Hope someone will give us nice news soon :-)

Sorry about that. We have a lot of work to do, we are planning to keep the Raspbian, Lubuntu stable, port new OS such as Archlinux, Fedora, transplant the GPIO library, maintain the website, write the wiki. We need do all things step by step, I promise the XBMC will come out eventually.

If you want to try porting XBMC, I will support you the hw_pack of Banana Pi, that include the built u-boot, uImage, script.bin and modules.

Ok, let me know how obtain those files, which OS should be better to start with and I'll give a try. No guarantee at all, but at least I'll play a little with this device ;)

Bye, Simon

Any update on this? I'm also currently trying to port XBMC, and would be very nice to have a custom hw_pack.
