It would be nice to get the rom and see if the Amazon VOD and Netflix apps are bytecode for other Android devices.

iFixIt Teardown of Revue reveals UART connector
In the upper right corner of the Revue motherboard shown in iFixIt's teardown, there is a four pin connector marked UART1, near J4. We can hope it's a serial console... I'll take mine apart tonight (assuming UPS drops it off today) and find out .

There is also a footprint for a SATA connector, which could open up some possibilities for a DVR.

I bought a Revue yesterday, and absolutely love it. There certainly are current limitations, but I'm sure all will be overcome soon enough, given the Android OS. Perhaps I'm most excited about the potential!

I'll be doing a lot of tinkering, and will see what I can get into with ADB later tonight.

I managed to capture the OTA link for the revue unit. Unlike the Sony device, the Revue does not ask you for permission to d/l the link (mandatory update maybe ?)

Awesome! Thank you for grabbing this. It would have been nice if the flash apk was in there so the person who modded the android version could do the same here and give us Hulu, etc back. That said, we would still need to figure out how to get into recovery on the Revue and manually apply the update.zip. Anyway, we are one step closer now. Thank you again.

Tada!

Netflix refuses to install, however, the Amazon VOD app installed fine. Apparently it doesnt register to the Launcher intent, so Ill have to do some digging tonight to see how to get it working.

How are you installing the APK's ? ADB or through the browser ?


NVM...I thought you were installing those APK's on the GTV box, not on other Android device.
