Linux on a blu-ray player

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I have an LG blu-ray player, model BP620C, and I'm wondering if I could possibly get Linux on it, for no particular reason other than the usual passtime of getting Linux and/or Doom to run on things it really shouldn't run on.

Never heard of putting Linux on a Blu-Ray player. I had a quick google and there was nothing related to it, only videos of how to play blu-rays on Ubuntu etc. If you were gonna try it (really cool project by the way) you would have to do a lot of research to see what kind of architecture it is and the bootloader etc

More than likely not.

The Device probably runs on Java, with no public drivers.

The Device is probably locked down for piracy reasons.

Most Smart devices for Home Theater such as the Blueray player have such low specs, they can usually barely run what comes on them.

If you can access it in some sort of COM port or developer mode.
