Honeycomb 3.1 released for Logitech Revue

Postby cj_000 » Mon Aug 01, 2011 3:55 pm

Hey Guys,

Sitting here in the forums, your missing all the fun, someone on freenode #gtvhacker just dropped a link to the Honeycomb 3.1 update for the Logitech Revue!

http://pastebin.com/6VfJBmMv

To quote:

Here it is everyone, Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) BETA On the Logitech Revue.

http://www.load2all.com/files/BE2FD2F97 ... 9.zip.html

This is BETA, it is not meant to be widely used and has bugs. If that's something you don't care about and would like to risk it anyway, install the update. Also, If you want to help Logitech and Google out buy another Revue ( preferably from logitech.com ), at $99 its worth every penny.

If you want to help, mirror this file in as many places as possible. I'm sure it'll be taken down quickly

Thanks!


We have added this to the wiki. Please update the Wiki docs as its designed for this.
http://gtvhacker.com/index.php/HC3.1onRevue

To install:

Copy the update.zip to a Fat32 formatted USB drive, place it in its root (ie /mnt/usb/update.zip or E:\update.zip)

Plug USB drive into Revue. Fully unplug revue. Plug it back in, count to One (a long one, say one mississippi), then hold down the connect button (keep it held). The Revue logo will come up, and the box will reboot, your tv will lose signal, and come back to the Revue logo. At this point, let go of the button.

The GTV logo will then show up, with an arrow and a horizontal "barbershop scroll". At this point, on your Revue's keyboard, press the FN key (in yellow) and the left arrow (to the left of the OK button). It will then come up to a recovery menu.

Hit "Apply update from sdcard:/update.zip"

The box will verify the update, and reboot. This is normal. It is installing an updated bootloader and recovery image (both, heavily encrypted).

Then, the box will come back on, and flash the latest kernel and system files. Once this is done, the box will reboot again.

This bootup may take a few minutes, at first you will see the Revue logo, then the Google TV logo, then the "new" logo (a grey tv over a ball glowing red). Just wait it out.

You can then begin setup, as normal. You may notice some crashes - this software is still beta, you should be able to force close and continue.

EDIT: There have been reports of issues proceeding with the honeycomb setup wizard that we are still looking into. Please at least for the time being refrain from installing the update unless youwant to risk not being able to use you're revue.

EDIT 2: People are now reporting that one can go thru the setup wizard without issue now, but still - update at your own risk as you can't downgrade!

EDIT 3: Note: Holding the recovery button will automatically reboot the box, also a Ctrl+Alt+Del from the keyboard will work as well. Unplugging the box could result in a corrupted NAND (which could result in a brick)!

Can someone confirm if the media player is more stable with this update? All I need is a stable network media player. All other features I can do without or wait until the official upgrade.

I assume this was not leaked with Zenofex's permission and therefore is not rooted (as the team was still working on that)?
