Default (Mod) OUYA Store and Custom Launcher running on the Shield!!

I have manage to get the OUYA store running on my Nvidia Shield!

The official Ouya Launcher does not get the job done no matter I've tried,
So i tried some of the alternative launchers, and low and behold... It worked!!
The Ouya launcher in which i used was Custom OUYA Launcher by Manuel Etchegaray.
It works pretty well but in an hour of playing around, it has froze up twice.

Video of it in action!

*pardon my cell phone camera...It sucks!

Just install ODK 0.0.6 onto the shield, manual inject the OOBE.apk from any OUYA rom, Create a new account (wont let you log on to existing). Install Custom OUYA launcher and there you go.

The only benefit i noticed is you can actually get a free copy of Order & Chaos by gameloft (free on OUYA) thats about it. thats why i stopped toying with it.

The other OUYA thread had a working 1.5 that's why I was asking. The stock launcher and everything.

Could you post a guide on how to make it work?

I would like to test it on my shield.

Thank you.

I tested the amazing frog apk from rooted ouya, on shield, and controller mappings work, without this rom, on stock 4.3, haven't tried on 4.4 from todays update, I hope the shield gets more support, as this whole thread on the shield seems to become more dead by the minute, but wwjoshdew seems excited, I cant wait for his video, if he sees this I would be happy!

Oh I just now see it after searching my name.

There will be OUYA videos eventually, but with the FireTV getting root... It's my firm belief that it killed the OUYA. I know, I have both.
