Submission + - A plea for XBMC on Allwinner A10 (

Hatta writes: OpenElec contributor j1nx has made a public plea to Allwinner to release the source code to the CedarX video libraries for their A10 board behind devices like the mele a1000. Opening this software would make a fully free sub-$100 set top box a reality. Says j1nx: We want to have a better linux CedarX library and we might want have hardware decoding support within the brand new XBMC Android version. They don’t have to do it them self, they only have to provide the proper people (they know who) the proper tools (they know which tools).

The first version always gets thrown away.
