I don't think a custom rom is the right thing now unless the let access to the ouya store in custom roms there is no point of doing you will end up with a game console with no game store but i will post over there any way
Go to this thread and let them know we want support:I'm keeping a track of how many requests we get relating custom firmware, and from what I'm seeing the user base is not as interested in custom firmware as you might think, which is echoed by this thread (we've shipped 60,000+ units, and less than 10 people have commented in the last month in this thread about getting access to recovery mode).
That doesn't mean that we're shooting the idea down, you need to keep in mind that in terms of priorities this is way down the list as you'd expect from any feature where it's being requested by less than one tenth of one percent of the user-base.
I'm sure @Wajeemba is familiar with CM requests that a very small minority of the user-base are very passionate about, so hopefully you can understand why we're not rushing to work on this.

for a system that is just launched people are asking alot, people need to stop confusing mobile custom roms with ouya yes we can root and do all sorts of things but it will take time and right now i dont think the focus should be custom roms there main focus is the device and the way they deliver. if custom rom is what you want i say head to xda im sure they are working on something...patients is a virtue
Ouya has made it VERY clear that they won't even consider this as road map applicable any time in the foreseeable future.
The sad thing is they were also totally against even hearing it when we asked for a Recovery Boot or Fastboot. And now we're starting to see exactly what they were warned of. Bricked consoles from mandatory OTA updates, and no way to fix them yourself.
