    For shear build quality the OUYA still rocks with Kodi 14.2.
    But don't forget to every few months do a CLEAN in stall of Kodi.

    The problem with Ouya is the version of Android the Ouya OS is on. Many newer programs coming out dont support the Android version it is based on.

    So I bought an Ouya a few months back for 10 bucks at a liquidator place. First off, the controller is horrendous! But was wondering if it's worth it to try and use this thing for Kodi or even other apps like Showbox, or MovieHD?

    The Ouya works pretty well as a Kodi device. In order to make it work really well, you need to do a few tweaks and an advancedsettigns.xml is nearly a must have. Even then though, it suffers from some stability issues and is not all that powerful, especially if you run a lot of addons or like heavier skins.
    I just recently have been modding my Ouya with Cyanogenmod so I can upgrade to Jarvis and it's really been a learning experience. I would say that if you aren't comfortable with doing more advance mods to an android device, the Ouya is likely not for you at this point. Keep in mind though, that Ouya was just bought by Razer, so there is hope that the Ouya will receive official updates allowing the easy installation of newer Kodi versions.

    Bottom line: If you are pretty tech savvy, the Ouya does live up to one of it's Kickstarter promises: the promise that it will be easily modified. If you know what you're doing, the Ouya is fairly easy to root, and once it's rooted, it's as easy to mod as anything else I've worked with. Really, it's a nice little Android playground to have fun with. Think of it like the Raspberry Pi of the Android world.
    It could turn out to be a big deal if you get one now cheap and Razer really puts stock into it, though. I wouldn't bank on it, but if Razer really gets behind it, the Ouya could have a very bright, if slightly unexpected future. If you are fairly tech savvy though, you could have an Ouya at very cheap prices and make it work for years to come. Not the best option out there, but for the cost it can be hard to beat.

    I remember when ouya was the number one box out there. Now the shield seems to be that.
    I considered the cyanogen mod for my old ouya but then I have no place for it anymore, what would I do with my shields?
    I'll keep it as a memento kind of like a trophy, lol. In 20 years maybe I'll have it bronzed.

    here is the link to the ouya development at xda
    Ouya Android Development

    modding is going to be the best way to keep this thing relevant as they are now defunct. Razor bought them out but the ouya box is dead. they made the purchase to get their tech and dev's but are putting it into their own razor box.
