HackBMC version 0.01

HackBMC is a linux distribution for hackberry board based on ubunt which aims at making your hackberry board a Personal Video Recorder PVR.
Based on the 12.10 ubuntu system originally made by Jas Hacks, this first HackBMC version runs:
  • XBMC 12 codename Frodo
  • Tvheadend 3.4 as PVR core

Version 0.01 can be downloaded here (mega) or here.

Installation, Windows:
  1. Extract the image file from the downloaded .zip file
  2. Insert the SD card into your SD card reader and check what drive letter it was assigned.
  3. Download the Win32DiskImager utility (it is also a zip file).

  5. Select the image file you extracted above.
