I have a keyboard with two extra usb port. I copied the CM11 rom to a usb stick and plug it on the keyboard, then I plugged the keyboard to the ouya and boot in recovery. the CWM saw the usb, mounted and I could install cm11 inmediately.

Now I have a little problem, it looks amazing but I cannot type anything, the ouya controller let me move in the system but when I click on some text field , the virtual keyboard doesnt appear.... is this normal?
shoudl I install something more..
I install the rom, the gapps and the ouyacontrollermapping.

thanks once more.

I doesn't know cwm see the USB stick... Happy for you...

Virtual keyboard appear if you unplug the physical keyboard or you need to disable physical keyboard on input parameters... But virtual keyboard work only with mouse...

Hi! Can anybody explain how to boot alternative kernel by default?
I installed cm11 kitkat nighty 3 months ago, and now I want to use ouya just as headless server with Debian/Ubuntu (for NAS, torrent server, bittorrent sync...)
I see only one way to do this: swap alternative boot and CM11 boot kernel, so alternative kernel now will be at the place of orirginal boot in /system/boot.img. But I dont know if this will work. Is there any better way? maybe some file with settings as in Hal9k+1's dualboot menu?
Maybe I can install Hal9k+1's dualboot menu? As I understand in 1st post it's not safe.

Either put the alternate kernel into the cm11 zip and then reflash or possibly by adb pushing it to /system while in recovery?

Just install the Official OUYA OTA as you would a CM Update, It'll override the Boot Menu and ROM.

This is based on the awesome work by Hal9k.
Because of the fact that the Ouya doesn't have recovery accessibility via hardware buttons we need to play safe and utilise chainbooting.
This bootmenu resides in the kernel partition and is loaded on every normal bootup.
In-depth info in Hal9k's thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2499673.

It presents various choices on every boot:
  • Normal boot - (default) loads bootimage from system partition (/system/boot.img)
  • Alternate boot - loads bootimage from sdcard (/sdcard/altboot.img)
  • Recovery - reboots into recovery (recovery partition)
  • Failsafe - loads built-in failsafe mode
  • Bootloader - Reboots into stock bootloader (for fastboot access - USE WITH CARE)


Notes about the failsafe
the failsafe mode (which has the bootmenu built-in) will pop up in the following cases:
  • the bootmenu could not find a valid bootimage (read: /system/boot.img for "normal boot"; /sdcard/altboot.img for "alternate boot")
  • the user selects "failsafe" from the menu

the failsafe mode resides in the bootmenu image itself and should ONLY be used (as its name suggests) as failsafe.
for regular flashing you need to use a newer cwm version which resides in the recovery partition and is accessible via the "recovery" entry in the bootmenu (see below).

And remember: After flashing this you DON'T NEED TO EVER touch your boot/LNX partition again

Reminder: Failsafe mode is ONLY to be used in case you can't boot into your recovery partition. For regular rom flashing the respective CWM recovery (see below) is required.


Milaq, Hi . I'm running JC's latest on Philz recovery, I'm toying around with my tp. just to make clear, am I to flash this Ouya from your recovery after I have Installed your Rom/Recovery and gapps? first I've come across this Ouya and being its an old post and all, I felt I'd best check. on a last note can I do all this from tptb?
