JynxBox HD Network Media Streamer Unboxing the XDA Way – XDA Developer TV

Not a long, long time ago and not in a galaxy far away—in this galaxy, in fact—Android only ran on smartphones. That’s not the case anymore; it runs on tablets, Raspberry Pis, televisions, and more. Today XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler gets his hands on a Jynxbox Android HD Network Media Streamer. What does AdamOutler do when he gets a device? He tears it down to its basic elements; he does an Unboxing the XDA Way.

After tearing it down and giving a tour of the device’s components, AdamOuter demonstrates the device setup, entering recovery, and rooting the device. The device can be rooted easily, perhaps too easily, so Adam shows you, how you can apply security. Finally, he demonstrates how to set the JynxBox up for debugging and loading software to it.


The JynxBox is designed to support the Open Source XBMC project which AdamOutler uses on a daily basis and has contributed to in the past.  XBMC can be used to stream videos and Live TV. DVR functionality is close at hand as well. So check it out. The recommended version of XBMC for Jynxbox, because of its unique interface method, is available at http://xbmcandroid.com.
