Thank you so much! I can't wait to try this. You guys have made Google TV what it was meant to be. Quick question: well doing this keep us on the older version of GTV or can we upgrade to honeycomb and keep root?

That's just great, but two qestions:
1) Could you please add to wiki files and some short howto how to get back to official firmware. I don't have any OTA updates on usb sticks and it is not obvious how to prepare them
2) Can we get back original sony's bootloader or warranty voided forever and there is no homebrew method to get back to stock?

When we use the term downgrade, all we are downgrading is the recovery version. You stay on the current OTA which is Android HC 3.2

1.) I've added the links to the most recent OTA and I believe there were already instructions on performing a USB update on the wiki. I have made these a little easier to find by placing them in the wiki page for each device.
2.) You warranty is definitely voided the moment you install our update. You can however still revert back to a 100% factory box by either re-installing the most recent OTA or by resetting back to factory default through the recovery.

Thanks,

I'm having a bit of trouble actually downgrading the kernel. I was able to flash the four USB drives successfully, however when I go into recovery and press 3 after I put USB1 in the front slot, it asks:

Do you really want to update the system?

I press 1 for yes, get an updating popup but then it says Update Data error. Has anybody experienced this before?

I also noticed when I flashed USB1 I got 1280+0 records in and out which is different from the example in the wiki which has 10240+0 in and out. Does that matter? Thanks!

Edit: Figured out that's what it's supposed to say, everythings working great!

Edit 2: Is anybody missing the "Install from unknown sources" option in the application settings?

Thank you for all your hard work! With this root/ exploit what kind of things can we expect to be developed. I imagine themes, Hulu CBS bypass ect. Should I create a new subject about this topic?


I created a topic in off topic called now what? http://forum.gtvhacker.com/off-topic/topic647.html please let us know what you have to say. Thanks

ok, I'm trying to figure out how to do this, I am horrible with dos, is it possible to just drag and drop each file onto the corresponding flash drive, or do I have to use dos?

You can drag and drop folders into dos prop and paths will automatically point to location of file

Is there a way to enable installation of apks. Looks like the option to install apks outside the Market is hidden?
