Mad Cats is releasing a software update to its M.O.J.O. Android gaming console that brings in several new features such as 4K UHD support, Ouya app, and root access. It also brings in improved compatibility with the Google Play Store as well as other app stores making consumers access a wide variety of apps and games.
Just recently Ouya and Mad Catz partnered together to bring Ouya games to the M.O.J.O. Consumers will be able to access a library of more than a hundred games that works perfectly with the M.O.J.O. gamepad. Some of the games include DoomGLES, Bombsquad, Shadowgun, Final Fantasy III, Ravensword: Shadowlands, and more.
Why watch a media content in Full HD when you can do so in UHD? The latest software update allows the device to play 4K UHD (2160p) content. You must have a 4K UHD TV or monitor to enjoy this feature though but with the prices dropping I’m sure there will be lots of customers who will be buying 4K displays soon.
Better Google Play Access
Consumers will now be able to access a wide variety of apps and games from the Google Play Store or other app markets. Previously, the only way to enjoy this kind of access was if the device got rooted.
This device comes with an easy to follow root access and since it is an open platform rooting will not void its warranty.
