  • Once there, you have two choices
    • Copy or type in a useragent. It's best to use a real one; you can find one by going to http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ from a normal computer. Going there on your GTV will show the current user agent on the device.
    • An alternative is to use the "Generic" user agent, instead of typing in a custom one. As of 3/5/2012, Hulu can be accessed when using the "Generic" user agent in combination with the GTVHacker root. Amazon Instant Video is known to not work with a useragent of "Mozilla/5.0" but will work with more complex useragent strings and has not been tested with the "Generic" useragent.

Apps that are available now

free terminal emulator This app has other features, and not all of them work on GTV. Note that pressing enter in the emulator will not execute a line; in fact, doing so will confuse busybox. Press the button instead.

LauncherPro a few features don't work

Apps that need work before they are available on GTV

android terminal emulator - not available for GTV yet due to issue #46
