Hello,

Nb: No "Android" zone in "special systems", so I post my msg here

I installed on my Galaxy tab 3 10.1 the X86 android XBMC version : it's OK

-> What about an Openelec Android X86 version ?

Thanks for all
Jean-Max

Openelec is a linux distribution, not a program. How should a Linux OS run in Android?
I don't believe that a x86 program will be executed by the ARM processor of your Galaxy Tab 3.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 has not an ARM CPU : It's an Intel Atom Z2560

That's why the only Android XBMC version which runs perfectly OK on this tablet is the X86 version from here:
mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/android/x86/

But the Android ARM XBMC version from here isn't OK :
xbmc.org/download/

Having XBMC and OPENELEC on different devices, (see my signature) I know very well the advantages of Openelec and I prefer it

That's the only reason why I asked the question about an Openelec Android hypothetic version
(and x86 version, because my tablet's CPU isn't ARM)

You reply that Openelec Android cannot exist : OK
Thanks
