XBian can be installed using our installer available for Windows and OS X. If you are using a different operating system you will have to download a XBian image and restore it to your SD card. If you are new to XBian we suggest reading getting started.

XBian works with so called rolling releases. This means that you just download one of these images and start updating your packages after installation. Even if you install XBian 1.0 Beta 2, you can easily upgrade to XBian 1.0 Release Candidate 2. It therefor doesn’t really matter much what version you download. The images listed are therefor not exactly the latest images XBian provides. We currently are in between XBian 1.0 Release Candidate 2 and XBian 1.0 Stable.

XBian images

Raspberry Pi


Various nightlies

XBian is currently working on a automated build environment. This means that every few day a new XBian image will be generated for all platforms we support. These nightly images will now en then be released as official images. As soon as this new build environment is stable enough, we will post a link to them.

We would like to thank the Rasplex project for helping us out with the installers
