Re: Roku Ultra stuck in a continual update loop

Jump to solution

@Walkerwade Yes, still supported. But, it's quite old, released in Sept 2013. Many of the latest channels won't run on it. 

Can a Roku be repurposed? I have never seen it happen. The Roku OS is a highly modified version of Linux, and it's doubtful that another OS could be installed without significant recoding.

Yes Dan..actually held it longer. When nothing worked I had a chat with Roku support who stated the problem was the update wasn't getting installed properly even though it showed 100% progress. He took the serial number and filed a request for a replacement so I'm waiting to hear from Roku processing now. Having owned a problem-free Roku 3 for many years it appears the QC/testing needs to be improved.
