Honeycomb-based Google TV for Logitech Revue leaks out

Android 3.1 slips out for Logitech Revue

In spite of rapidly growing problems, Logitech Revue owners got a treat with a leaked copy of the Android 3.1-based upgrade for Google TV. Hacking the install requires just a USB drive and a special reboot and should bring the completely remade interface, including support for third-party apps when they appear. Those in the GTV Hacker forums note that there's no root required to force the upgrade like on some Android phones and tablets.

The upgrade carries a significant risk: the OS is considered genuinely unfinished in its current state. Owners also can't revert back to the original Google TV build if the update breaks or users aren't happy. It's also unclear if there will be any way to move to the official release without another hack.

Officially, Google is due to bring the Android 3.1-based interface to the Revue, Sony Internet devices, and future Google TV hardware sometime in the fall. [via Android Central]
