I don't know what you would gain. It was unfinished and the WMC code part was pretty much the same.

Like I said, playback functionality was the same so it was just a new interface + Android apps to put it lightly.

While we won’t be able to add new the capabilities Android would bring, Echo remains a great solution for anyone that wants the core Extender feature set of whole-home TV, DVR, movies, music and video in a great looking, small, silent device that consumes a fraction of the electricity used by other extenders and set-top boxes.
