XBian can be installed using our installer available for Windows, OS X and Linux. 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 XBian 12.0 Release (Debian Bookworm based).
