    When I first booted my Google TV, it did an update over Ethernet. If we could get that update file, it might be possible to flash it in recovery mode. Unfortunately, I was too anxious to get my Google TV running, and I didn't think ahead about ways to find the update filename.

    So, if someone has a brand new unit, and the techncal know how to set up and use an Ethernet sniffer, it might be good to capture the update download with a sniffer and see if it's possible to determine the URL where the update comes from.

    If we could get the update.zip, it might be possible to unpack it, modify it to start ADB, and possibly add root access. Then re-pack, and flash from a USB stick in recovery mode.

    Android updates are cryptographically signed, so you cannot just repack update.zip and do a manual update.
