Yes!!
So guys our OUYA will get KitKat, EternityProject awesome kernel, so we can get the max of our OUYA!! :highfive:
Only what we have to do is donate them! So come on and let the dream come true!

Email from them:

About the OUYA, sure. I can develop for it if you donate one to me... and about it, it's a beautiful machine. Tegra 3 can handle 1080p just fine as it's a really good chip and its GPU is really good.
I've had a bunch of T3 devices, such as the HTC One X and the LG Optimus 4X HD and I've run them at 1080p just fine with optimal performance.
I may make it to run at that resolution with the performance it deserves..... or well, I may also try to decrease it to 720.

I've just opened a donation fund for the OUYA. You can find it on our homepage.

KitKat would be great for the simple feature of screen recording over ADB!

While I do agree this is completely awesome I would rather see the actual Ouya team upgrade their rom to kitkat 4.4 and unlock the cpu/gpu scaling. I already have a galaxy s4 running kitkat and a s4 hdmi cable I got off of ebay for $8... So really I'm just looking for a sleek front end and performance from the Ouya team or at least for them to open it up a bit more for modders. If we fry the console it's our own fault and they will probably end up getting more sales from it lol.

Won't be any update:
E-mail from OUYA:

Unfortunately, I am not aware of any plans to update to 4.2 considering that Google removed the feature to install to external drives in that release.

720p will be maybe. Firstly they said something like it isn't necessary. Then they said:
With regards to 720p, the console supports that as well but defaults to 1080p. We are also looking at ways to implement a selection between the two in the near future so definitely stay tuned!

They maybe read my comments, so they change mind.

It's only on us.

Oh hell... so does that mean even if we get a custom rom of 4.2+ we won't have usb storage again? :/ if that's the case I would just be happy with 1080p and a cpu/gpu overclock on 4.1 without 720p down-scaling for better performance. Which btw is a double edged sword for me anyway... I use my ouya for watching 1080p mkvs but would also like to see massive fps gains in games which going from 1080p to 720p isn't a huge difference (in my opinion) when it comes to games.

No, there are to many apps and scripts for installing apps on extarnal drive. I'm using it on my U9508, I'm having change internal and external memory.
OUYA propably have dual boot, OUYA rom and CM 11 if it work.
With custom rom you can have plug in more external storage. USB flash stick and external drive in same time, but this must be added.

Hi,

the rom would need to be installed and booted from the recovery partition, right? Does the kernel has nfs and or cifs support and if not can i pay extra to get it? I finally want to have native, on-boot remote fs support for the Ouya.

cheers,

Tycho

The lead developer over at Eternity Project just recieved his Ouya today to start the testing and creation of the kernel and rom.

Great to see Ouya and Cyanogenmod in the same sentence.
Though will be interesting to see how the storage thing is tackled.

Not trying to down the guy... however...


So, first of all, we need a SAFE way to flash and run kernels on our OUYA device, since OUYA hasn't got any failsafe recovery method such as easy access to Android Recovery or hotkey to boot into bootloader when softbricked.

That is not true... invisiblek introduced the sysrq combo to force the OUYA into bootloader mode. That same patch got pulled into the main repo and has been included on official OUYA releases since 519.

Also if you *actually* need a safe way to test kernels just use fastboot boot .... same for testing CM11... just rip the kernel out of the flashable zip and after you install the rom fastboot boot into the kernel you *made*.

I've been building/testing CM11 on mine as I get time to and see no reason why you couldn't do the same. ( Hell I've been flashing them with the kernel and still could use the sysrq combo to reboot into bootloader and fastboot cwm just incase I borked something up... )

Also I don't approve of the "pay me to port" method for a $99 device... actually I don't approve of it on any price for a device but I'll let my values go elsewhere.

What other option would you prefer when a developer doesn't already own the device?

Does anyone know whether the Eternity kernel works with the stock OUYA ROM? And if so, how well?

It works with Stock Plus and apparently pretty well...

I apparently need a complete dummies guide to how to get this thing working... I have no idea where to place the new kernel or what to name it. I flashed (or at least I think so) from my computer to the Ouya but then when I reboot it goes to the EP bootloader and then goes to the CWM menu if I don't touch it. If I rename the ep kernel.img and put it in the /sdcard dir and name it andoid.img and let that boot it will just boot to a black screen and sit. I seriously need like a video tutorial or something, COMPLETELY lost on this after probably 10hrs of messing with it.

.. new method is found .. 1st you have to boot to stock kernel (rename your LNXBACKUP.img to android.img) .. install no No-frills CPU Control .. open it .. set governor to PERFORMANCE .. tick set on boot .. and you can rename EP kernel to android.img .. and reboot ..
