wdtv live, actions before selling   

Postby jazz » Tue Mar 08, 2016 4:14 am

My wdtv live is with 1.05.04_V.WDLXTV_LIVE-0.5.1.1
I'm thinking of giving away my wd ... :?
What would you do with the rom if you are about to sell your device?

1) Upgrade to 0.5.2.2
2) Stay with the 0.5.1.1
3) Revert to the stock version, if yes what version would that be (link perhaps?)

My goal is:
a) the future owner to have no problems at all in everyday use, and
b) to depersonalize it before selling, what's the best way to do it?

Sorry to see you go, jazz.

If you don't know the new owner and won't be setting it up for them, the best would be to flash the official version (1.06). Before you do that, however, you should do a "Reset everything" from the webend. This ensures that passwords, config files and your settings are deleted before you give it away.

Sorry I respond with 2 days late.
Actually, my presence on this forum has been one of the longest lasting ever.
Although I'm not using my wdtv everyday, I'm still visiting this forum everyday. ;)
I think I'll present it to my friend, but I'll revert to factory firmware.
Thank you for your answer.

Can someone confirm if this is the correct official firmware link:

Release 1.06.43 (1/17/2013)
