    To get to XBMC 12.1 instead of 13.0alpha1 (this also works to downgrade from 13 to 12.1):

    sudo apt-get install python-software-properties pkg-config ppa-purge
    sudo ppa-purge ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo reboot

    I ran
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    XBMC doesn’t load up. Now when i boot up xbmcubuntu loads asking for credentials to log in.

    Ryan,

    Ryan,

    You could try these commands, they worked for me after my system upgraded to xbmc 13 alpha 1 and I had to downgrade again to xbmc 12.1:

    sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
    sudo apt-get remove xbmc xbmc-bin
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install xbmc xbmc-bin

    That worked just fine, I’m back on 12.1
