Ouya ToolBox v1.1.2 – 07/10/2013
THIS DOES NOT CONFIGURE DRIVERS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT!
YOU MUST HAVE YOUR DRIVERS INSTALLED PROPERLY OR THIS WILL FAIL
This is for the people who do not know how to download/setup Android SDK/ADT, or know much about ADB in general, and will root for them!
If you’ve never rooted before – this will root your device.
If you’ve lost root for some reason – this will root your device.
If you’ve lost root due to an OTA update – this will root your device.
(for the record: if you have lost your su binary from /system/xbin, you need to reinstall an ota update to recover it. this program does not restore that file, yet.)
If you are having any problems with this program not working right, or getting “exception” errors while using it, please use the TEST VERSION below!
*TEST VERSION* If you’re receiving an ‘unhandled exception’ error when you load the program, PLEASE USE THIS VERSION FOR NOW!
50% of you guys are having issues with 1.1.1 or 1.1.2, and the other half aren’t (myself included.) There is a problem with the way AndroidLib.dll interfaces with the Ouya’s ADB responses. The author, @regaw_leinad and I are going to try to work together to get it resolved!
This version WILL work for you, for root and recovery, but there is NO detection support! It will ALWAYS say that the Ouya is connected!
Connect Ouya to your computer via usb
If you’re not already rooted (or have lost root,) your first step is to click the Root button. This will configure SU.
Next, install both Superuser and Busybox.
On the Ouya, run Superuser and select “Install” (NOT install from recovery!) from the options.
Run Busybox, grant it root access when it asks, wait for the files to verify on the screen, then select Smart Install.
After that, the rest is up to you! I would suggest installing CWM Recovery and making a full backup!
This program takes a few seconds to open when you run it, because it scans your computer to see if an Android device is attached, and also generates all of the files needed during the process.
I will be implementing more features very soon, and will try to make it look prettier for you guys!
PLEASE let me know of ANY bugs or problems that you encounter! This program is nowhere near complete or finished!
