Recommendations for getting a rootable TV in 2019

Post by mad_ady »

I'm looking to getting an extra TV and I really like the mods on my rooted H-series (sleep-mode, unencrypted recordings, channel info, screenshot, ir injection). I'd like to have the same amount of control over the new tv as well, but I suppose it's no longer doable on new series. So, I'd like to ask the community if I should look at a specific vendor/brand/model that is more open than Samsung at this point, or is it a lost cause?

Thanks.

I wanted to open a similar thread, but maybe more general overall:
Is it realistic that we will get a new root series in the next months or is the samygo project on the crossroads with this tizen TVs?

I'd be getting a dumb tv, except this time I'm looking forward to using the wireless display feature...

Things became really slow here, do not expect any quick updates. The worst thing is here is no ETA for updates. I advice you to take most recent rootable model (check extras), or buy something what fits your needs hoping that one day we will have something sweet for your model. Or not. Peace :)

Thanks for the update... I'll look at what the market has in terms of dumb TVs and I'll pair it with an Odroid N2 that I have as a media player and hope to add all the features I want. The H series can do the TV recording and monitoring.
Sorry to hear things are lingering... But you never know when a breakthrough happens...

I went with a Philips Android TV because it had built-in chromecast support. With new android kernel exploits, it shouldn't be impossible to root in the (near?) future...

Why just not buy Mi Box S/Shield TV ?
You can get much more from them, even without root!

Stick with K, new root coming soon :)
I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!
