Re: Pull netflix app

Here in lies the issue - that isn't the netflix app, or at least - not the full version. GTV is a bit different, netflix (among other places) lives in /system/netflix, it's full of it's own libraries, crypto, applications, etc. The APK is simply a "link" to a launcher that starts it up via a DirectF...

Re: Need help Co star won't register!

You don't need the entire SDK installed - just having adb will usually do the trick!

Re: Need help Co star won't register!

You can't, what you need to do is set up adb on your computer, connect to the Costar (over ethernet or wifi), and then issue the "adb logcat" command. See: http://www.gtvhacker.com/index.php/Steps_to_get_root#Installing_Apps Instead of step #6, type "adb logcat" instead! Also note: On the GTV, Setti...

Re: Need help Co star won't register!

Can you get an adb logcat of what goes on when you try to update? That might help narrow down what's exactly wrong.

Re: Vizio Co-Star Wiki Page Updated

Oh, sure that you could do it - but whatever app you'd want to run would need to be recompiled, just like on the x86 boxes.

Re: Vizio Co-Star Wiki Page Updated

I would hold off on releasing the root until the firmware is much more stable and bug free. No sense letting them patch the exploit before we have a firmware we're ready to live with for a while (in case we can't get more updates without losing root). At the very least they need to fix 5.1 audio pl...

Re: Vizio Co-Star Wiki Page Updated

We have yet to release the root process - currently looking for another way in that we can share, so when it's patched, we can have another way in.

Re: Vizio units are reported to be shipping

Again - appreciated. Hopefully our boxes will be showing up in the next few days.

As for the NDK - sort of is the best I can say. It does seem to support native libs IF you use the compiler that was GPL'd, akin to the Revue. Trying normal android apps fails terribly due to library differences.
