I just found out my ouya is worthless!

I just found out that they shut it's services down... It's stuck on trying to connect to the servers and will never work!

I was planning on making it a streaming/emulation device for my niece and nephew, so they can play my PC games over it and retro games.

But, I can't find anything that can make it easily get rid of the ouya OS so I can install a normal android or Linux OS to it.

Trying to see if anyone might know anything a few spots on the net, if not, it goes in the trash.

Turn it into an Android TV box, install Kodi for sports and TV shows, then put all the emulators on it to make it a gaming console.

If you can get the play store on there (and from what I've read you can) then you can install the steam streaming thing which works well and emulators for most things. There is also an app called Moonlight if you have a geforce installed that does the gamestream thing.

yah that's what I mean, not sure what to do get or if it even works, most things that people post are for before the service got shut down. The only thing I can access is the network page, I can't even get to the games I had on it.

nope, cause I have to be able to access apps and stuff. I can't get off the network login or settings menu.

So it would have to be a total install while deleting the old ouya OS
Like if I could do a fresh install of androidTV OS or Linux/raspian on it, but I have to figure out if that is possible if it allows for a new bootup of another OS. It might be locked only to ouya shit.


https://www.reddit.com/r/ouya/commen...are_currently/ going to try this tomorrow. Funny, how I needed this and BAM there it is, just posted yesterday.
