Installing ADB driver for Ouya in Windows 10

Ouya ADB driver install for windows 10 title.

I can’t find the “OUYA” for unknown devices to install the ADB driver!!!

You are not going insane in finding an ADB driver to install and this is not an error to my original tutorial about how to Mod the Ouya for Cyanogen tutorial. This problem directly ties into the “NEW and Improved” way windows 10 64-bit edition handles drivers and how outright malicious Microsoft has become by fulfilling their own drivers over hardware vendors they have no business in half-assed’ly supporting. All of the documents and screen captures that I will be providing for you are accurate as of 4/27/2016 and when I originally made the Cyanogen tutorial I wanted this process to be as simple as possible. It’s turning out that Microsoft has other plans about their OS and the way it works forcing bloggers like myself to constantly made addendum entries about the same tutorials. Read on if you want to learn more about this beautiful disaster.

Uninstall Cyanogen and restore Ouya Firmware.

Uninstall Cyanogen - Title

Uninstall Cyanogen from your Ouya.

Uninstall Cyanogen (sometimes referred to at CM11) and restore our Ouya back to factory using the full firmware load in the ClockWorkMod Recovery menu. There can be many reasons why you would want to restore the factory firmware onto your Ouya ranging from company actually getting off their ass and updating new software update which makes the Ouya usable once again such as an Android OS update. To simply restoring stock because of the many bugs and glitches in Cyanogen that you simply cannot tolerate anymore. This my I have published a blog on how to install Cyanogen it is only fitting that I also publish a blog about how to remove Cyanogen as well.

Cyanogen Mod CM11 and the Ouya.

Ouya to Cyanogen - Title

Cyanogen mod the Ouya.

Why Cyanogen Mod (sometimes refered to at CM11) you ask? The future of Ouya and the news of the most recent acquisition of the company to Razer has made a lot of Ouya owners such as myself feel rather uneasy with the consoles business as a whole. Couple this with an aging OS to the point where some favorite applications such as Kodi no longer work under android 4.1 due to programming issues. Razer is now stating that they will keep the Ouya servers up for another year. But then what? I guess they pull the plug and tell console owners such as myself to buy the next latest/greatest razer box. To which I will probably laugh and buy an Nvidia shield if I were to ever get an android box again. But that’s not the point of this blog entry.
