GTV Hacker team member CJ Heres has posted the open sourced code for LG's Google TV devices and a hacked ROM for the upcoming "Android TV" update (Jelly Bean).
The new ROM uses Linux 3.4.5, the same version as Jelly Bean, and is shown working on a Sony Google TV set-top. The ROM comes complete with NDK support and the ability to run a barebones XBMC (minus video streaming). Supposedly, the software was pulled from a Chinese Android device.
Google has confirmed that it will "bring the latest experience of Android and Chrome to devices," including Chromecast-esque features. There is still not timetable for this update.
