"Official" Rooted Image for TCL RT51/RT2851/BeyondTV (Android 9) Plattform

Search This thread
Copy img to usb pen, turn off TV, long hold of power button.. It started instsllation.. We will see when its finished... Now im see "please do not turn of the power!" and some kind of loading bar runs again and aggain.. And notification led rapidly flashing.

Edit: tv now rebooted and im see Thomson logo, now android tv loading screen.. It now a few minutes and i still see android tv start screen animation, but i reqd it can take a while, i will just let it go and will see.

Edit2: after few minutes, TV started.. now setting up.. I have installed file from first post.. I cant wait..

it worked well, faster than my old android tv before.. i now installed
so i will see.. thank you anyway.

Last edit (i hope :D) this release i installed from post link, i must say i noticed this system build is ALOT faster than version i have before, it seems not rooted, but still, gives me rly fast experience and TV is like brand new, so.. thank you again :)

Good, 👍
I skipped latest R114, as I have already V677 (Android 11) installed and running till today.

I will try android11, but is there any big difference?

Is there any way edit IMG file? Its any kind of disc image/archive, is there way extract it, remove some bloatware and compress is again into usable img file? But im almost sure thre is any fingerprint protection inside that will dissallow it, right?

You can open IMG file no problem ,but not sure, if you change something will works again.

Has anyone checked if the bootloader is unlocked? Just need to extract the boot.img from your rom file (the Update.img file is a simple tar file) and try one of the following:
Code:
fastboot boot boot.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
If it boots, than it's unlocked. If it fails, you can just reboot and nothing is changed.
If it were unlocked, we could compile a twrp build and root with Magisk.

Is the tcl 50ep644 supported? I need newer android version
If you know your TV firmware version, then can see support or not.
Latest is R114, on previous page.
Other,older versions, I think links are already death.

Edit:
So far there will be no more custom firmwares, as TCL abandon/block they servers.

@stasiof it seems you know a lot about tcl and I can see you posting on every possible forum :)

Will there ever be a chance to have rooted firmware for c825 TV? 😉
