Roku version 7.5 rollout on hold?

Wed Nov 16, 2016 1:03 pm

Is it safe to assume that the OS update is in hiatus?  After experiencing some bugs in my boxes, rolling back to version 7.2, and now seeing that I cannot force an update to 7.5; I guess the rollout has stopped..??

Was wondering that myself ... but, more importantly, how did you roll back to 7.2! I thought that roll-back was impossible!

During the initial phase of a software rollout, you are able to regress to the earlier version using the "update software" function in the "secret screen."

How does one get to the "secret screen"?

Press Home 5 times, Fast Forward (>>) 3 times, and Rewind (<<) 2 times. Do it all within 10 seconds and ignore anything happening on the screen.

You can also Google "roku secret screens"  ....  you will get a wealth of returns with all the other Roku secret codes.  This info has been rattling around the web for a long time now.

Is the initial phase over?  I see no option to roll back in the "secret" menu

I'm just a civilian. I am not privy to any Roku technical information. Perhaps one of the forum moderators will comment on the window of opportunity for rolling back a software update.
But, I wouldn't hold my breath.....

Manual updates available now for Roku-3 and Roku-4. Or at least very soon.
7.5.4099 is the latest build.

I just went through this. In the secret menu, there is no option to rollback to a previous software version, but when I chose "update software" it stated that I would be updated from 7.5 to 7.2. Nomenclature is reverse to what seems logical, but it did rollback to 7.2.
