WebOS 2.0 upgrade availability

20 posts in this topic

I want WebOS 2.0 update available to my existing ULTRA HD TV running WebOS 1.x (e.g. UB850T).

http://www.lg.com/us/press-release/lg-to-unveil-more-intuitive-webos-2.0-smart-tv-platform-at-ces-2015

 

I can't accept this news.

However, LG has confirmed to ZDNet that owners of the 2014 webOS TV models will not be able to upgrade to webOS 2.0.

I got my TV which was some of last 2014 releases at the end of the year.... wtf is this?

 

The current webOS looks like some experimental prealpha release. If LG will not bring updates to it I'll never buy any LG product ever again, me and my other 10k followers... Even worst I might go with bad advertising for this stupid LG move...

MediaTek is making sure that the latest chip offers support for Android, WebOS (used by LG),

while providing room for Panasonic to tweak it for their upcoming TVs based on Amazon's FireTV OS,

according to CK Peng, marketing director for MediaTek's home entertainment business unit.

hopefully it is not one time off experiment but commitment from LG and provides the 2.0 update to the

existing TV running WebOS 1.x.

Hi all, if that's true I'll join the LG boycott. It's simply not acceptable. Just bought a 650V a week ago and I am really dissapointed on how this systems looks like a Alpha Stage Software.

For LG, a few months old TV it's not worth to update..? Seriously... WTF...?

You didn't say protest - you said boycott. What exactly are you going to boycott?

I am sorry but thats a silly question.

Off course we can boycott.

Not buying any LG products and inform new buyers to not do it because of reasons like this.

Wikipedia says:

A boycott is an act of voluntarily abstaining from using, buying, or dealing with a person, organization, or country as an expression of protest, usually for social or political reasons. Sometimes, it can be a form of consumer activism.

@Jimbo1876 now clear?

Really? The things you learn on here. Though I have never relied on Wikipedia as a source of reference before.

So this LG TV you have bought - are you going to return it as part of this "boycott"? Or are you simply going to refuse to buy another LG TV when this one burns out - which might be never?

Good luck with your consumer activism against LG. Let us know how you get on with protesting against the company you were "persuaded" to buy a TV from.

The report says that the TV series LB630 above will be updated WebOS 2.0 on the border of June / July. But be careful! There will probably upgrade to the full version 2.0, but a partial update, so instead let's call "a bit like WebOS 2.0 Lite". However, your operating system is also said to significantly accelerate and part should come your TV as well as new, resp. modified user interface: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=hu&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.digirevue.cz%2Fcz%2Fvsehochut%2Fitem%2F502-lg-tv-2015-podporuji-i-vp9-a-chysta-se-aktualizace-modelu-2014&edit-text=  :)

That is quite stupid. I bought my LG tv in Q4 last year, how new OS will not be availible for it?!

If so I am pretty sure this LG TV set will be the last LG thing I buy.

I believe is coming soon ....

I have installed on my 42LB650V and everything is working properly. All menus works much faster and smoother than in all previous versions. Finally, after many earlier updates, webOS in my LG became useful. Do not install 4.65.50 or older, it does not make sense. 05.10.01 is the one for which we waited for so long. Just install it and have fun with your LG. ;)

      Hi people,
       
      I bought a LG 49UH650V 49" 4k. Even though it is a very good quality TV, I'm struggling trying to sort out a problem that seems apparently easy to solve.
      I'm italian and I live in the United Kingdom and I set up the TV to use it in the UK. I want to watch the italian tv as well which all the channels are on HotBird 13E. The tv has set by default Astra 28.2E satellite, only this one is listed. In the upper right corner there is a button with a plus symbol [+], I think this is for adding a new satellite, but it is not enabled, I'm not allowed to click on it. Very sad.
       
      Does anybody know how to enable that button, please?
       
      Many thanks
       
      Bye.

      Hello everyone. 
       
      I have problem. 
       
      I bought LG 49UH600 few days ago. And I tried to use applications, but there is no possible to upgrade them. Its also with LG store , It cant be open.
      I only can use WEB Browser.
       
      I searched over the internet and found out that I have to register account for my TV, and that I could do it in quick settings- advanced - general - Account Management 
       
      But when I go to advaced - general -  there is no account managment option at all.

      Hi
        Since YouTube went down a couple of days ago, I can no longer use the YouTube app on my LG smart TV.   Anyone know what the issue is or how it can be fixed?   Thanks

      I saw this TV for €749. Since someone answered on amazon.de that the Magic Remmote will work I decided to grab this TV.
      Now my Magic Remote arrived and I have problems registering it with the TV. When I press the wheel-button I get te message "Failed to register Magic Remote. Please try again".
      I already tried changing the location from Austria to Germany (as described in another thread here), hoping to get a firmware update to resolve this problem.
      Would be great if anyone could help me to make it work!
