    Hi all! I just bought Philips 55PUS6561 TV android lollipop inside it. Philips just have spoiled the whole system. It is unbelievable slow for 1000€ TV os and it is filled with bloatware that you can't get rid of.

    Is there any way to root it and mod it, uninstalling all apps you don't need and install what ever apk you want?

    Thanks for replies in advance!

    Being a Philips, any attempt at root and modification will almost certainly invalidate the warranty. And for this device I don't think there is any documented and proven rooting available.

    Could try something like Towelroot, but you're on your own I think, it may work, it may not work, or it may brick the TV and you have a €1000 euro doorstop. Here be dragons.

    Why not just buy a cheapo Androd TV box and plug it into the TV?
    Like Mike says - it's very risky to muck around with an expensive TV when there's a cheap alternative available that will do what you want.
