New Infos: Hack OUYA to be accessible from windows!
You first have to install ADB (Android Debug Bridge) on your PC. It’s part of the Android SDK. There is also a Firefox extention, but you need the SDK anyway.
You may have to modify the file usb_driver\android_winusb.inf. Add following lines below [Google.NTx86]:
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2836&PID_0010
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2836&PID_0010&MI_01
Connect your OUYA via the micro USB port to the USB port of your pc and execute following commands:
echo 0x2836 >> “%USERPROFILE%\.android\adb_usb.ini”
When you have it up and running, check with “adb devices” (list all connected devices).
Then copy the desired .apk in the same folder as the ADB executable, open the command promt (cmd.exe) at the ADB folder and install it with “adb install yourapp.apk”.
You could then install a file manager to get things a little easier for you. 😉
adb install [-l] [-r] [-s] <file> – push this package file to the device and install it
(‘-l’ means forward-lock the app)
(‘-r’ means reinstall the app, keeping its data)
(‘-s’ means install on SD card instead of internal storage)
