got one and doesn't work.

Sometime crashes at the login prompt, sometimes after Xwindow loads and running something but doubt I'll get more than 5 minutes up before it hangs or crashes. Thought maybe my first power supply but tried the Playbook charger (is rated 5V/1.8a) and still the same. SD card is on the compatible list and reflashed it a few time.

Try another SD card and see how that goes. And if you've got a Linux box with an SD reader, you could plug the first card into it and see if there's anything interesting in /var/log/syslog. After what I went through over the weekend with mine, the SD card is where I'd start looking. It could be the power supply too but if you're seeing the same thing with 2 different supplies it wouldn't be my first bet.

Also, if you do get it running long enough to get to a command prompt, dmesg may have something on what's going on.

It's a nice little board once you get past the teething problems, don't give up!

I put Openelec on my PI. Runs XBMC without a hitch. I used the XBMC HUB wizard to configure all the goodies on it, including Navi-X:

My Rii WiFi keyboard works well with the PI (zero configuration).
