I bought a new roku express. During set up I can select language and hook up Wi-Fi. It goes to install update then when it restarts it goes back to select language. Keeps repeating

Re: New device won't go past update

Hi @Kevinmul,

Thanks for your first post in the Roku Community!

We apologized for the inconvenience this has caused. We appreciate you letting us know about this issue with your Roku device not updating and having difficulties setting it up. 

We want to perform a few steps to make sure we are providing the best service. We would recommend continuing to try to keep checking for an update to see if the device will install the latest update. You may also try connecting to an alternate wireless network to install the update, then when successful switch back to the Home network.

If the issue persists, please refer to the support article here for additional troubleshooting steps: What to do if your Roku streaming device is unable to update software | Official Roku Support

Please try doing this and see if it helps with what you're experiencing.


Best regards,
Mary
