    If you’ve got a smartphone, chances are, you’re familiar with the hacking and modding site, xda-developers.com. Now, it looks like some Google TV loving members over at xda have started a new site, dedicated solely to the hacking of Google TV, gtvhacker.com. As of right now, there isn’t a whole lot to the site, save for some info on the Logitech Revue (which we recently gave you a run-down on here), and some information on rooting news. The site is a wiki, so it’s sure to fill up with information soon.

    What do you think? Will Google TV be able to hang in there long enough to get the rooting and hacking love we would all love to see? Be sure to let us know in the comments.

    Interesting, I wonder if this is the same group that fried two boxes in their attempt to gain root...

    Is this site aimed just at the Logitech one? or just Google TV in general?

    Update everybody go check out the website, root has been achieved and details on how to get it are up. This is a hardware based approach so it will not be for everybody and requires a non updated box. We are hard at work finding that software solution.

    I love my Logitech Revue but I absolutely HATE the fact that I can't watch video at Hulu, Hulu Plus, ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX. There's probably more. If only we could hack the damn box to change what Flash reports to these websites.

    It's ridiculous that these places are singling out Google TV boxes and blocking them. If I was paying for Hulu Plus, I certainly wouldn't be anymore. As for the networks, they get their revenue through sponsors (advertising). They show ads on their websites when you attempt to view episodes. What difference does it make if I'm using my PC to browse to the content or my damn Google TV?

    Anyway, I'm really looking forward to a hack that's a wee bit more simple than the fantastic start the guys at GTVHacker.com have worked out. :)

    Keep up the good work guys!

    I agree with Raven, and am anxiously waiting for the guys at xda to do their magic!
