With the impending death of the Revue coming, we have issues the following call in hopes we can continue developing and improving the platform.
We love the community that has emerged since we started working with the Revue. As Logitech has dropped the ball, we would like to pick it up and continue improving the Revue. We have started a petition in hopes of getting this.
Logitech recently announced that they would no longer be making the revue after the current holiday season. After this period the device will receive very little attention and will have a very angry base of original supporters. To help avoid this Logitech should provide a “developer boot-loader” for the Logitech Revue to allow developers to create there own kernels and updates for the device. At its current state the Logitech Revue is completely locked down making it very difficult for developers to add modifications or fix bugs on the device. There are also already a number of teams creating custom ROMs for android devices, unlocking the boot-loader would allow these groups to port current custom ROMs or generate new custom ROMs to the Logitech Revue. With the release of a development boot-loader that allowed such modifications the device would continue to grow and would help un-tarnish the reputation that this device has given Logitech.
Please sign our petition and join the movement! We want to take it from awesome tool, form factor to something really amazing.
