My Micro USB port failed a while back and I'm still waiting for my replacement console from Ouya. I hope this gives me a way to get around the problem and enable wireless adb from the console. Can't wait to try it out tonight.

UPDATE: Totally worked. Now I have ADB again! Thanks a ton!

you can adb wirelessly(without usb cable) if you enable the adb tcpip mode

How do, I do that. I a noob with adb. I have it on my pc but it was used only as a test to see if I get it to recognize my tablets and phone. The only way I have installed CWM was generally by going into apx mode (similar to fastboot I think)and using a win.bat file. I could then watch on the tablet as every thing was installed.
Now that it's rooted could I use Rom Manager the only thing being I do not know which device to tell it I am installing CWM on.
BTW, i have install busybox. I used the busybox from my Asus TF700 which has the exact same tegra cpu and gpu, not sure how important that info is.

I used it yesterday and it installed superuser and I had to install busybox. I used dropbox to put jrummy's busybox installer apk on Ouya and then installed busybox. You will see a limited Rom Manager after install and it reminded me that you can use Rom Manager to flash CWM recovery but you need to know which device you are installing it on and Ouya is not listed as a compatible device. However, it does have Asus Transformer Infinity which I have owned for 8 months so I know a little about it. The Asus uses the same Nvidia T33 cpu and mali 400 gpu as Ouya. So I suppose some adventurous more knowledgeable person than me can try selecting the Asus Transformer Infinity when using Rom Manager and see if it will install CWM recovery. If someone does try please post back with the results.

Works like a charm. Used this to root my Ouya today. Afterwards installed busybox, and used the xposed mod for the play store. My Ouya is getting better and better bit by bit.

Thank you!
