  1. My Samsung un40h5203afxza Smart TV has Chromium 25.0.1349.2 spec as browser. {NOT TIZEN}. Updating the browser is required. Will upgrading to Chromium OS help with it rejecting all apps, upgrades, tools and browsers. It also has Linux partially installed with a Micro Focus Universal CMBD Browser as well, itโ€™s has lost 7 of the 8 Featured apps as well.

    1. Chromium ARM is abandoned, I last attempted reviving it a couple years back and there were way too many packages to overwrite for it to be a viable option anymore. I’ve also switched to Debian arm64 on my Raspberry Pi which has the latest Chromium and thus no longer have an environment appropriate for testing. Sorry.
