HOW-TO:Install XBMC on iPad/iPhone/iPod touch

Last month I covered how to Send AirPlay Video from an iPhone or iPad to a Mac, PC, or TV with XBMC. TIme to show how to install XBMC on your iDevice.

Unfortunately, jailbreaking is a must for this tutorial. XBMC directly competes with some of Apple’s core products and has been rejected from inclusion in the App Store. The only way to enjoy the awesomeness that is XBMC is to jailbreak your device and download it directly from the XBMC repository.

  • To install XBMC for iOS you must have a jailbroken iDevice running iOS 4.x or higher.
  • For hardware: iPad 1, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 3rd gen (16GB and 32GB models only), iPod touch 4th gen.

Step 1: Tap the Cydia icon on your homescreen.
Step 2-iPhone: Manage - > Sources -> Edit -> Add
Step 2-iPad: Sources -> Edit -> Add
Step 3: Type in
Step 4: Tap on the teamXBMC source.
Step 5: Tap on the XBMC-iOS icon.
Step 6: Tap install, then confirm.
Step 7: Let it install, then exit Cydia. You should now have a new XBMC icon on your screen.
