root_files.JPG


Installing:
1. Download zip file and Extract any place you want.
2. Connect OUYA to your computer using USB-mini and power-up OUYA.
3. Install Android Driver Manual
4. Optional: You can put under "packs" folder any apk file you want the program to install.
5. Run file "ouys_root.cmd" as administrator on your windows computer.
6. Done!

Q&A
Q: After system update the root will be deleted?
A: Indeed, after every system update we will need 2 root again. But don't do it automatically without watching this post. After every system update i post if it is clear to do it.

Updates:
05/08/13 1.03 - Fix SU error
01/08/13 1.02 - Remove automatic driver install
30/07/13 1.00 - Upload

We'll help you get to 10 posts.

I have a question, will this work on Windows 8 64bit?

Any additional things I need to do in that case? (Turn of driver signing, run as administrator, run in compatibility mode with Windows 3.5 or something? I hope someone reads that.)

(can't post links yet :p)

Did I do anything wrong? I'm quite new to both OUYA and Android...

I keep failing from finding multiple emulators.
I'm pretty sure I disabled or uninstalled every other android device on windows 7 64 bit pc and it still shows.
Wouldn't load ADB on the Win8 laptop from your packet, said the .ini was a corrupt hash files.
Got it rooted and going the long way. Thanks anyways, must be my pc and 6 other Androids causing the problem.

Would you consider making a Mac script like this too ? I could see myself using this script all the time (after every new update, or after i screwed my ouya again :p ) But i'm on a fruit logo laptop.

I did not instal CWM or any other modification, just stock OS with XBMC. Any solutions?

does the usb fix just mount already supported file system formats or does it allow other formats to mount like ext3?

First off,

Thanks for making this for us! I just installed this morning and everything worked out well.

But when I try to access and update Superuser, I got an error. It just says "There was an error installing Superuser. Please send a log of the error to the developer."


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks! :good:
