It's my pleasure to announce our latest release "The GTVHacker Sony Recovery Downgrader & Rebooter". This method will allow you to downgrade your Sony Blu-Ray GoogleTV Blu-Ray Player or Flat Panel to run unsigned kernels. The guide and information about the process can be found at our wiki:
The process in the guide above will walk you through downgrading the kernel to an exploitable version. Then using that particular exploit to hijack the devices boot process where we reload to a new kernel completely bypassing the signatures normally used by the system. This process will happen automatically each time the box is powered on and the USB drives required for the install are not needed again. After loading our attached unsigned kernel you will notice a new splash screen (featuring the Sony and GTVHacker logo) as well as the following perks.
- Modified flash plugin with custom per box flash string for Content Provider Bypass.
Crippled Update to prevent box from receiving automatic updates.
Completely RW system partitions
Full ADB Root
No more signed modules
Among a few other surprises.
Between the speediness of the 3.2 upgrade and this we will finally have the box we've always wanted from the GoogleTV. I recommend this update to everyone as it only requires 4 USB sticks and is a 100% softmod (No soldering required!).
