How to Roll Back: 

Extract the three files (.BIN, .VER, and .FFF files) to the root (top level) of a portable USB drive.

Open file wdtvlive.ver in Notepad and change version number to VERSION=‘1.02.212’ (otherwise it will not let you downgrade)

Connect the USB drive to the WD TV Live Media Player’s USB port.

Press HOME, and then select the Settings bar.

Select the firmware upgrade icon, and then press ENTER.

You are prompted to perform the firmware upgrade.

Select OK on the firmware update prompt, and then press ENTER. This will restart the system.

After restarting, the system automatically enters firmware upgrade mode.Once the update process is completed, the WD TV Live HD Media Player will restart again. Once the WD TV Live HD Media Player restarts, the new firmware is automatically loaded and the WD TV Live HD Media Player is ready for use.

After you have downgraded by changing the version, how do you accept the next update?  Is there a way to wipe the firmware and start fresh?

Ah, never mind…i see how it works.  The higher update is just to trigger the update but the actual firmware version is accurate.:wink:
