Congratulations! You can now return to the Fusion Installer by going to the “Install from zip file” function at anytime in the future! Please note that it’s highly recommended that Apple TV and iOS users copy over our custom Advanced Settings XML File before continuing, which will substantially improve functionality. Special thanks to tuxen and RogerThis for their contribution towards to the Fusion Installer.

We’ve heard some reports that Fusion might cause problems for XBMC Remote Application users, if you’re having trouble just disable it.
