Difference between before and after in software/OS version.

 

Before

After

WebOS ver is still 1.X

 

Hopefully LG will work out to develop better OS in future for this model. So far the OS cannot be used for internet browsing or similar activities, it looks to me that this software is only "Beta" version.

 

Will test and see what is the difference between the old OS and the new one.

 

Kind Regards,

upgrade through USB is this safe way ??? also I Asked Customer Support and Only the Answer is Just Wait and Check Every Day through My TV :D :D :D

this is my model on site is available same of Software Version

http://www.lg.com/africa_en/support-product/lg-47LB6520-TB

Then why on earth do they give instructions on how to do it via USB?

I have used USB method on last 3 updates with no issues whatsoever.

It is entirely up to yourself if you choose that option.

In my post the details i have provided are for TV model 42LB625T, be careful choosing the right firmware!

As Jimbo1876 explain in his post the procedure how to upgrade firm from USB is very well explained on LG website.

1. Download the archive file.

2. Unzip

3. Create folder on the USB drive and name it "LG_DTV"

4. Copy the file/s to USB drive in the previously created folder "LG_DTV".

5. Turn off the TV from remote

6. Plug in any of the USB ports or in service USB if it's exist.

7. Turn the TV on.

8. When "USB connected" message will apire select from the dialog "stay".

9. Last "USB update" message will apire chose "install".

What for around 10-15 minutes and than restart the TV.

Please note that I don't take any responsibility if something goes wrong while updating the firmware.

Regards,

I'm not sure what will happen if the power goes down during upgrade, but I guess the TV will not work. Therefore I haven't notice that the TV has some sort of Bios or something similar but for sure is not erasing the old OS before fully install the new one. BTW I forgot to mention in my previous post that you can check the status of the update in the menu while updating.

With the new firmware everything works well; therefore there is no huge difference between the two versions of the firmware only the TV works faster and some bugs are fixed.

Below is my opinion about the TV.

TV quality builds material: very good.

Picture quality: awesome.

Sound quality: awesome.

Menu response: OK

Remote control: magic remote is awesome.

Switch On time: OK

WebOS: the most useless OS I ever seen in my life, I give up using the OS long time ago.

Updates of firm: I think that will never happened.

      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.
       
       
      Software Version 04.30.40

      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!
