HC 3.1 On the Revue

Postby zenofex » Thu Jul 28, 2011 3:07 pm

As you may know from our twitter, we now have a way to run Honeycomb (Android 3.1) on ANY Logitech Revue. Heres a screenshot of the market/dashboard, we'll have more info in the next few days.

New update includes:
Adbd
Android Market
Improved Media Player

will this require a hardware modification or can it be done with software?

I'm wondering this as well. I'm hoping it is a software exploit.

I'd like some clarification as to what "ANY Logitech Revue" exactly means. That I can think of there are only two types of Revues....a virgin never updated Revue with original firmware or one that has been upgraded and no longer supports UART hacking.

galfert, you are correct. This requires no modification to the box as its just a Logitech Revue update. The only requirement is that you have a thumb drive > 128MB to place the update on.

A quick note however, as logitech and others have stated. The update is not bug free and in my opinion may not be ready for general consumer use. Some may however see it as an improvement to the current state of the revue (regardless of its small bugs).

I'm assuming this is tied in to the "Accessing recovery menu" thread?
revue-f12/topic6.html

Perhaps you've found the signed update zip, and are flashing via recovery?
This is awesome news...

What are the bugs - how bad is it, really?

It's pretty bad, and the downside is there is no way to downgrade! So once you've updated to 3.1 regardless of if you like it or not, your stuck.

Edit: Actually, I'd say this is still significantly better even with its bugs than the current update.

Will we be able to upgrade from this when honeycomb is officially released?

Also couldn't you factory reset by booting into recovery to downgrade?
