T3 Touchscreens with nova or other launcher.

Recommended Posts

Hello All.


seeing as the T3 uses android 4.4 AND is wall mountable it seems to be a prime candidate for central control. at the price point though (even at dealer cost) these are quite pricey as a dedicated myhome app.

my question is this:

i know theoretically it's possible to install additional apk's to the t3 however i'd like to know if anybody else has tried this.


what i've tried so far:


1. ADB + microusb - nada.

2. windows mounts 2 usb drives called rocketchip which are inaccessible on windows.

3. OTG cable to usb stick, nothing pops up. i wasn't expecting much from this.

4. pressing the 'volume down' button ontop of the screen while pressing power - this did factory default it and a small toast notification popped up afterwards saying debug settings available by swiping from right side of screen while in the settings menu (while screen isn't connected yet to director)

this menu had 4 'environments' and 6 'repositories'. under the update control4 app.

changing the setting did cause a relaunch of the 'C4Launcher' but no default full launcher surfaced.


  • MOCK
  • BETA2
  • PQA2



going through them the panel does find updates through the device settings page and check for updates but nothing changes once the update installs.


i'm hoping someone else has tried messing with this too. 


i'm aware this probably voids the warranty however this is the true meaning of the 'push the envelope' categorization of the forum.

Did you ever get any headway here? I've got a T3 Desktop that seems to be dead, and I'm playing. :) 


"pressing the 'volume down' button ontop of the screen while pressing power"

I can't get this to do anything. I would love to see what you did...
