webOS 2.0 Information

88 posts in this topic

2K 2015 models and 2K 2014 models have the same hardware (Dual Core ARM Cortex A9 CPU and 1,5 GB RAM).

There are differences in the 4K models that have in 2014 edition a Dual Core and in 2015 edition a Quad Core CPU.

 

WebOS 2.0 must work on 2014 models.

as it turned, it is only a matter of memory, so an error in the project , the fact that webos 2.0 can not be mounted completely on the TV series lb , as though out of the memory occur on webos 1.0 maybe it's time that we all We protest with the manufacturer , requesting the replacement of the motherboard because it does not meet in full as shown in the sales specifications .
The out of memory to fully explain the 
hardware failure  to manage what they posted .
If they were cars that do not work the brakes would have to recall the products they marketed and to remedy all these drawbacks that the production in 2014 of webos brings us users who have purchased these products .
the memory of the second level has been increased from 256 to 512 Mb in new products named LF . the rest is all uguale. change  only the motherboard .

it is a shame they have placed on the market for products that are not able to handle as specified on their advertising , they used us as guinea pigs to test their products , then you do not even deign to remedy , just change the motherboard , but they are careful not to do so would leave all ' air all their profits , will boycott all their products and shut them down , I have a tv that to change channels takes 30 seconds let alone if you have to change platforms , from terrestrial to satellite , it takes a lifetime .
do not say that os 2.0 is a ' else , because the problems that there are in os 1.0 are due to lack of memory (which traparentesi not allow us to upgrade our TV os 2.0 ) then a basic design fault , the their stinginess falls on us , but it would have cost them or we already have a memory of the second level of 512Mb departing , seen from experience on their PC that memory ram is never enough ?

I have just upgraded my 2014 TV to... webOS 2 ? 

The firmware is 1.4.0-2507 (afro-ashley).

 

Tv model: 42LB650V-ZN

Country: France 

 

Sounds good right? :)

Sorry Apollonaute, but it sounds very bad. ;)  Why? Because you've upgraded your 42LB650V-ZN to webOS 1.4 not 2.0.

Thank you for your help.

 

Have a good year

If LG is not ready to support 2014 TVs why can't if someone who is familiar with rooting the device (TV) can do that. There is a cyanogenmod forum to support HP touchpad (which had WebOS) to load cyanogenMod OS. If this can be done with LG TV why should we wait? 

 

I got 50LB6300 on 2014 thanksgivingday hoping for the webOS 2 update in 2015 but wasted my time and money.  If I don't get the update this will be my last LG product and I will recommend my friends circle as well not to purchase LG products.

Sorry, small correction to what I said... it's NOT WebOS 2.0 ! It's still WebOS 1.4.0-2320, which is definitely NOT WebOS 2.0, even if they applied part of the changes they did for WebOS 2.0 ! I'm totally pissed because now I cannot install Molotov, a french application for streaming TV which is also available on Apple TV 4... I HATE LG !!!

I sent an email to the LG support and they told me that the new version 2.0 is not available for my TV (55UC970V). I don't know why LG published an information about availability (and automatic installlation) of the new vers ion WebOS 2.0 for all TV made after 2014. Maybe, it's a liar !

      Thanks to Ruud, one of our members, for posting about this article from CNET.
       
      CNET is reporting as of yesterday that LG is planning to update all 2014 TV models to webOS 2.0. This would be a flip in direction from what they had announced earlier in the year. The articles states that the update will start rolling out mid year to all models. We'll have to wait and see!
       
      The company has confirmed to CNET that its 2014 Web OS 1.0-equipped TVs, including sets like the 55EC9300 OLED, will be updated to version 2.0 of the operating system.
       
      The update will happen sometime in the second half of 2015, and will be rolled out to every 2014 TV with Web OS, in every territory worldwide.

      LG to launch next version of WebOS 2.0 for smart TVs at CES in January
       
      The company plans to launch the next version of its smart TV platform at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show.
       
      LG says the latest version of WebOS improves on the features first introduced last year by giving viewers access to a wider variety of 4k ultraHD streaming options and making the platform faster overall. It also comes equipped with a new "My Channels" app that allows users to customize their favorite broadcast, cable or set-top box channels.
       
      “By updating webOS with new and smarter features, users will experience a next-generation Smart TV platform that’s simpler, easier and more intuitive than ever before,” LG vice president In-kyu Lee, said in a statement “The webOS 2.0 platform is another example of LG’s commitment to taking a leadership role in the next generation TV market with an innovative Smart TV solution.”
       
      LG introduced WebOS at last year's CES and has since sold more than five million televisions powered by the platform.

      webOS 2.0 will make LG's smart TVs much faster next year
       
      The usual pre-CES flood of information is under way, and LG is announcing details of the webOS 2.0 package its smart TVs will ship with in 2015. Improving on the menus we already dug at last year's show, LG says that the new versions will improve mainly in speed, with power-on boot time reduced by 60 percent, and a 70 percent improvement when switching from the home screen to YouTube. Sluggish, unresponsive apps have been a major pain point for "smart" TVs since their introduction, so it's good to see that addressed. One thing that will remain an issue however, is that the 2.0 upgrades will require a new display, as we haven't heard about an upgrade for existing sets (or other platforms like smartwatches, or even phones). According to LG, the first webOS sets were quite popular, with over five million sold through eight months.
       
      If you have one of the new ones, it will include a new "My Channels" app that puts user's favorite TV channels right in the TV menu. Last year's TVs included "Universal control" from the Magic Remote LG ships with each one, and now it's built into the UI so it's easier to stay in one menu. Also upgrades is an Input Picker that recognizes whatever devices are plugged in for easier use, as well as 4K streaming support (on the appropriate TVs) for Amazon and Netflix. If everything holds to form, we should hear more about super size, high res displays with new tech (like quantum dots) over the next few days, before the usual CES flood of information once we hit Las Vegas in early January -- see you then.
