Stuck Can't Install No Active File Managers?

I just brought my ouya back from the dead after a year, the store bypass got me going but the bypass doesn’t give me access to apps from anywhere but the browser and so now the problem is how can I flash a recovery image without installing a file manager as I am unable to open any downloaded files am I?

If you’ve used the ouyaproperties.xml to bypass the network screen, you should be able to access the discover store.

If you are set on reflashing it, you could always just push an image to the Ouya over ADB.
