Ironically, about a year or so after I started that topic, in spite of all the feedback I received from forum moderators, Roku quietly implemented the ability to rollback software via the secret screen .... an ability which had not existed before. We are all grateful for that small concession; as grudging as that accommodation might have been.
Not sure that capability works well enough. Right after upgrading to 7.7 and seeing the problems, a Google search led me to the instructions on how to downgrade via the secret screen, and I happily went back to 7.6. Unfortunately, soon thereafter Roku auto-upgraded me back to 7.7 and the secret screen then showed only 7.7, with no ability to go back. From what I read, that happened to many others. What we need, IMO, is a way to always reliably go back to a known good release.
Right. I can access the secret menu, but my only option is to update to the same 7.7.0 4117 firmware I already have. Would be nice if I could truly rollback.
