Whenever the terms Hack is used the things which strike our mind is breaking into someone system and installing some files which are popularly known as Virus to run havoc on the concern person’s system.
But actually Hack could also mean to do things smartly and in the different way to meet the end result. Ouya has this idea in mind when it says Ouya is meant to hack in a legal ways of course.
Web browsers, chat clients, social networking apps, and tons of home entertainment apps could fill up the console with content that outshines any Android game. Since it has built-in Bluetooth, a wireless mouse and keyboard could turn it into the simple, powerful, full-featured Google TV box we’ve been waiting for, without Google TV or the clunkiness that comes with it. There are also many free apps which could be sideloaded on Onya
One can use Ouya in the form of music system, movie player as a PC, photo displayer etc. The company has confirmed several emulators are on their way and will be available when the system officially launches later this month. Reports suggest that SNES, NES and Nintendo 64 emulators are being planned for the launch.
Now what does that means. It means that emulators of games of SNES, NES and Nintendo 64 will come installed in the Ouya. By getting your hands on ROMS you can play your favourite old-school games and retro games once again.
Since there is no google play on Ouya, Dropbox.apk comes handy over here. It is free to use and also simple to use. it’s also highly recommended, likewise for Gemini App Manager and Astro File Manager. A bunch of other services and programs are available, some for free, others cost, but if you’re comfortable using a different one, go ahead. You’ll need these three programs on your tablet, phone, or what have you, and they’re all easily found on Google’s Play Store. For more details visit the link
Though downloading roms are illegal but like movies, games, songs, books even roms for games are also available for download. You check the following links for the same.
Ed Krassentein mentions that the NES emulator, EMUya, has already been submitted for approval. He also points out that an SNES emulator called SuperGNES is being worked on, as is an N64 emulator called Mupen64plus. There is even word that an N-Gage emulator is in the works.
Developer Paul Lamb is working to port the open source Frodo C64 emulator to run on the Ouya, which means that you can treat this game console like a Commodore 64 computer. This means you can play all of the coolest titles, as they were considered then, on Ouya.
Emulator developer Robert Broglia, who’s responsible for some of the most popular Android emulators including Snes9x EX+, has revealed to OUYAForum that he’s working on emulators for Game Boy Advance, Sega Genesis, NeoGeo and more.
Most commercial ROMs still contain content that is copyrighted, so downloading them for free on the net is considered illegal.
Another hack which is possible is getting the Linux version for Ouya. This is yet to be done but once someone cracks it then Ouya could make an excellent little box for web browsing and light office use with the addition of a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Plus, of course, the prospect of playing the huge library of Linux games without the need to adhere to Ouya’s business model.
