Hi Guy,

I recently buy a Android TV Philips PUS7909. It's an android tv based with 4.2.2 on board, unfortunatly Philips make the choice to block LOTS of android function...

I can't install unallowed apps, enabling dev mod....

I just want to know if someone here have this tv, or another philips android tv, and if someone can root it etc etc

Yes i know, it's not even christmas , but maybe someone can do amazing thing on android tv, specially on xda !

I too have a PUS7909/12 Android TV and I was disappointed by several things, one of them being unable to install most of Store apps. Rooting would be great as at least it would allow to install .apk files.

Should Philips provide the source code of its Android implementation? Are they under the obligation to provide it?

Hi,
I read one comment from Finnish netshop, it's for 55pus8809 model:

1. Install "Developer Tools" from play shop
2. Choose "Developer settings"
3. Switch developer options "on"
4. And "Show more apps in Google Play"
5. Reboot TV

Install "Set orientation" from play to orientation problems, switch "Landscapen" on.

I don't have Philips TV, but planning to buy one
Here is link to source, I don't know how it works...

I tried this, and it's true that some more apps are shown. Would be great to load apk files, but there is no "unknown sources" option...

I have the Philips 48PFS8109.

Developer options are enabled, but there is just no way to enable 'unknown sources'.
With the Google Search function the Settings options is not showing (it works on phones if you search settings)
Not a single application is compatible that gives me a shortcut to settings.

If i try to install an .apk file i get the message you need to go to settings and allow it. There is an Settings and Cancel, but if i press on settings nothing happens.


Does someone know a way to call up the settings menu with Therminal Emulator?

I already updated the tv but do you guys think its possible to just add an .apk file in the .upg file?
I can change the .upg to .zip and add an app in the system folder.

Wink Steps for install any APK in 2014 Philips Android TV AND1E
Hello,

For install any application in 2014 Philips Android TV AND1E :

1º You must download "Developer Settings" from "Google Play" and enable "Usb Debugging" in "Developer options".
2º Connect ADB via WIFI -> adb start-server" , adb connect IP:5555
3º Install APK -> adb install "app.apk" (download apk from google play with evozzi apk downloader in web or in chrome extension)

I've tried it in 55PUS8909 and it works!.

I've tried for root framaroot, towelroot and vroot and exploits not run.
I've tried all for "Unknown Sources" and nothing.

sorry for my english....thanks, regards!
