stacyk819 Posted May 22, 2013 Report Share Posted May 22, 2013 Hi I just got flirc and ouya today and spent the last few hours getting it working with my ouya. Obviously android recognises it as a usb keyboard so some functions work right away but you need to get a little tricky if you want everything to work seemlessly including android home, menu, back buttons. Step 1: install superuser follow this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2270589 if you do not understand how to do this i cannot help you. Step 2: install a file manger, I use es file explorer step 3 navigate to system/usr/keylayout and find the file "Generic.kl" this file is the default key map and maps android functions/ characters to coresponding keys on the keyboard Step 4: edit file NOte: on es file manager you need to enable r/w access by going to tools> root explorer using this file you can set android use certion functions for different keys. I didn't change this too much but made one really important edit. Key 102 which corresponds to the "home" key on most usb keyboards is by default set to "MOVE_HOME" which means go to the top of the page you need to change this to "HOME ALT" which is a special function that ouya made to be the home button. Note: for most android devices "HOME" is the home key but this brings up the menu on ouya, the reason they did this is so they can have single tap bring menu and double bring home. Done This seems really simple and isnt too bad the tricky part was figuring out about the "HOME ALT" function which as far as I know I am the only one to figure out. PS: this is off-topic I hate the ouya launcher but installed nova launcher and open launcher for google tv both of which work really well, I have it set to open nova at start (sort of a desktop) and open open launcher with the home button (which goes over the media or apps and is great for multitasking etc. I have attached the apk which is very hard to find because you need a google tv to get it from the playstore https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17958951/Open-Launcher-for-GTV.apk 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
