Just wanted to drop in an inform everyone that all of us over at #gtvhacker have created a twitter page to let people know of our progress and to make announcements. The twitter address is twitter.com/gtvhacker.

We also are moving the IRC room to irc.freenode.net #gtvhacker , as always drop in and say hello.

Also wondering if this forum is going to create a googletv section this 25 page thread is getting a little ridiculous.

Thanks,
Zenofex

Google tv rooted!
We finally got root on the revue box and have released a package to manual update the box to the most recent revision, the current hack requires an un-updated box but we have already made a lot of progress on a unofficial sdk and toolchain.

Here are some videos of it all:

Here is the README for the hack and a little bit about all the files and the process.

Toolchain and SDK Info can be found at:
http://www.gtvhacker.com/index.php/GTv-OS_(AndroidTV)

You can also find a link for the install package above, I didn't want to post it on here in case it violates any xda rules.

We all idle on IRC at irc.freenode.net #gtvhacker . If you have any questions, comments, or ideas to better the package please stop by and chat.

Thanks

Awesome, excellent work Zenofex and company! I'm looking forward to when it works on updated boxes so I can get in on this. (Or else I'm going to have to get another box).

I would assume that the next big step would be to learn how to package a backup of one of your rooted systems with a terminal emulator installed on it into a workable update.zip file that you could distribute anonymously?

I hope the next step is figuring out how to root an updated box. It wouldalso be nice if you didn't have to disassemble and solder stuff inside. But, you gotta do what you gotta do. Nice work. Impressive.

I'm not sure the soldering is essential. From looking at the write up and pics, it appears that the prices solders wires to some connector pins. If a female connector can be sourced for the pins, you could eliminate the soldering...

The UART comes originally unpopulated. All of the pins were soldered on by hand, so having some non-soldered connector is probably going to be unreliable at best.
