If it's running Android it has a root, and if it has a root some modder will find it. The Sony Google TV is most certainly running a flavor of Google's little OS and so it too is just waiting to be cracked open. While that hasn't happened yet, Android Forums and xda-developers member Apeman has managed to get us one step closer. He's enabled the recovery mode on his device by holding the power button down while plugging it in, presenting a tantalizing "System Update with USB" menu option. What lovely things will this unlock? You'll have to wait to see -- just like us.
