Development Notes

Radio

  • The Ouya uses a BCM4330 radio chip for wifi and bluetooth. Drivers for this chip is built into the linux mainline as of 3.3 and the kernel we use uses 3.1 with the driver support (presumably) backported. Otherwise, we can use the Android binaries (which would be non-free).
  • Two later releases (the completely white special edition and completely black 2nd generation) allegedly use a BCM4334 chipset. This needs to be implemented and tested at a future date.

Kernel

Other

  • Splash screen doesn't appear
  • Hildon doesn't work?
  • USB booting needs to be tested

Installation

How to enter flash mode

1. Connect Ouya to PC

2. Use adb reboot recovery to enter recovery (or adb reboot bootloader to enter bootloader for fastboot commands)

pmbootstrap

ToDo Work in progress, may be wrong. Only attempt for development

1. Flash CWM and Ouya BootMenu.

2. Turn on Ouya, then press the power button many times until it scrolls to Bootloader, and then wait until the boot menu disappears.

3. Run the following using pmbootstrap:

# pmbootstrap init
# pmbootstrap install --no-fde
# pmbootstrap export
# pmbootstrap pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs
WARNING: This will create two partitions under system partition instead of one which won't allow you to use Normal Boot option in Ouya BootMenu

4. Reboot Ouya, then press the power button many times until it scrolls to Recovery, and then wait until CWM appears.

6. Using CWM menu options, mount /data partition.

7. Copy postmarketOS boot.img to /sdcard as altboot.img:

# adb push /tmp/postmarketOS-export/boot.img-ouya-ouya /sdcard/altboot.img

8. Reboot Ouya, then press the power button many times until it scrolls to Alternate Boot, and then wait until postmarketOS appears.
