This post is here to archive the old procedure of Xposed for Ouya 2.1.4
If you have stumbled onto this page because the xposed framework is what you need to root your Ouya and this page is here only for historial reasons. Click here for the updated documentation on rooting your Ouya.
I notice a lot of people come to my site for various support topics for the Ouya and I figured that I should make an article dealing with some of the Ouya Support in terms of troubleshooting issues that were simply too small to exist under one article. These are questions which pop up time and time again in forums as well as on reviewers that decide is a fatal flaw of the console. Just a kind note that your Ouya has a 1 year warranty from the time of your purchase to be sure to keep that sales receipt in case something catastrophic happens to it.
Ouya USB is great really! It gives the Ouya extra space to store games, ROMs, pictures, practicly everything that you would otherwise have problems with within the confines of estimated 3.2GB of free space that is on internal memory because the Android OS is taking up over half of the space! However, one of the annoyances that people do complain about is how long it takes to scan games. A lot of this has to do with the quality of USB thumbdrive that you are using. But could it be something more? Could it be the way that our drive is formatted that is slowing down the Ouya? What I am talking about is partitioning your USB Drive to something other then the normality in order to attain stability and speed out from your Ouys USB device.
For those who do not play much on Ebay there was a lot of issues with purchasing controllers for the PlayStation 3 in regards to china making a ton of knock off controllers. These third party or P3 controllers looked like a Sony PlayStation 3 controller except that if you ever picked one up and start pressing the buttons or pushing the analog stick around you know that there is something not quite right with them.
In my previous article, I have discussed a lot of AirPlay and DNLA action with AirPin for Ouya. But what if you don’t have an Apple phone? What if you got a Android phone or even a laptop which is running Google Chrome? This is where installing another service onto your Ouya called “CheapCast” will aid you in your multi-platform streaming woes.
If you have read my previous articles about AirPlay. You’ll know that I am no stranger to Apple and their magical protocol of transferring audio data from one device to another with the protocol known as “AirPlay”. However when it came to the Ouya it has been almost a dead topic. After-all; The Ouya is a cheap game system and could never be able to act as an AirPlay receiver of content like that. Or at least, so I thought.
This is not going to be a step by step guide as that would involve me showing you how to root your Ouya to access the GooglePlay store. Although this program works without your Ouya being rooted. You would have to think of more creative ways of getting those APKs onto your Ouya without the assistance of GooglePlay and I can’t show you that! I like my web provider very much thank you!
More IBM SurePOS hatred from a computer technician.
Another IBM product (which is now Toshibas nightmare), another capacitor fail. Unlike Dell and Samsung which moved away from the Chemi-con capacitors quickly after the lawsuits and disasters of PC’s and servers dropping over dead in less then a year. IBM stayed the course and decided to make this capacitor the “Industry Standard” kinda like how industry standard for generating power is using a water wheel. Unlike my previous article I don’t think I have illustrated exactly WHY the capacitors blow apart so easily in these SurePOS units.
WinAmp’s humble beginnings from this bloggers perspective.
The news of WinAmp has been sending shock-waves with their announcement of finally shutting down the program and closing the doors after 14 years on December 20th 2013 along with all sister media servers associated with it. Throughout most of the older internet community and since I haven’t posted a blog update in a while I thought that I should give my views and insights about WinAmp since in a very strange way I had WinAmp even BEFORE I had a PC . I had a version of WinAmp Called “AmiAmp” for the Commodore Amiga computer which possessed a 68020 processor or better the first MP3 I ever got was on some french server on Lyon that had lots of anime p0rn, but for some reason they also had “The Cranberries – Salvation” in MP3 format on there. My Amiga 3000 with a 25Mhz 68030 processor was not strong enough to play the mp3 at 128kps sterio, I could only play it in mono with %100 CPU power. When I eventually stopped drinking the kool-aid left the Amiga scene and got a PC I of course got Winamp right away.
