OUYA Recovery:

HOW TO PUT OUYA IN RECOVERY MODE
------------------------------------------------------------
1. Have usb keyboard connected to ouya.
2. Turn ouya on.
3. Press and hold alt + print screen + i button, if you do not have print screen button use sysrq button.
4. Now tricky part is to keep pressing i button for 2 seconds so that the screen flickers for about 4-6 times until ouya reboots.
5. When it reboots you will see a red exclamation mark and u. Now hit your home key button.
6. Eat a muffin, you are in recovery mode.

So the way I recovered my ouya was to
------------------------------------------------------------
1. Put ouya in recovery mode.
2. Make sure ouya is connected via usb to your computer.
3. You choose the apply update from adb option in recovery mode.
4. Write in your terminal/command prompt adb shell, you do not need su.
5. Then type in adb sideload RC-OUYA-1.0.346-r1_ota.zip. In my case I was using version 1.0.346 for recovery. You can find the recovery files here: http://bit.ly/OUYAFirmware
6. Once it is done sideloading it will reboot if I remember correctly.
7. You should have recovered your ouya.

When you do the USB support method will it give full access to a 3tb hard drive? I know currently anything over 2tb requires additional software but was wondering if this would solve the issue before I save myself some hassle and move my information and reformat my drive

So don't fill it up just put a few files and check. Let me know because I'm curious as well. BTW after you test I'd wait till later today because my buddy and I figured out a way to make apps run from external hd but that method can't be used with this.

lol my only problem is that its already loaded with about 1.5TB of data so its going to take some time to move everything off. My only main reason to root my OUYA at the moment is to give access to my drive and didnt want to run the chance of bricking it if it doesnt solve my issue.

This method won't brick your device unless you don't follow instructions and its easily reversible.
