Hi everyone!


Are there any developers?

I got my TV two days ago and I'm eager to start developing some apps!


Is there any info about the SDK?


I'd say an exclusive section for development forum was a nice idea :)

Well it wasn't released yet but few days ago it was available on lg developer website.

It was due to mistake because it vanished on next day.

But from what i see it's still buggy.

I already uploaded 64 bit version : http://dfiles.eu/files/i47as0d3c

Later on i'll add 32 bit.


aprox 1.5gb


But there are still some bugs : I couldn't open WebOS project wizard in Eclipse due to some error( earlier on i did something that it worked, can't do it again :P)


1. I can't start the emulator from either inside eclipse or from the executable in the corresponding folder.

2. I can't test on the TV since I don't know how to enable developer mode. Tried putting in some codes that worked in hp webos devices but no luck.


Let's hope by the end of the month the SDK gets officially released and we get a proper manual alongside it. Anyway, thanks for your effort Himself!

      Hi people,
      Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?

    • Question: ALL apps stopped working today on my OLED55C7

      Suddenly all apps stopped working today, Dec 25, 2018. No Netflix, no Amazon, no Dolby app, no LG content store, Nothing. I assumed it was a network issue, but the TV says the network is fine and this is proven by the fact that (1) the TV is correctly setting the date and time using a time server, and (2) I am able to access  network device in my home.  My home internet is working perfectly. I tried reinstalling the firmware. No go. The built in reinstall doesn't connect either. I downloaded the correct firmware and put it on a USB stick. The TV sees the stick if I navigate to it, but doesn't prompt me to run the firmware update. Finally, as a miserable, undesirable, last resort, I reset the TV. THAT DIDN'T WORK EITHER! Does anyone know how to fix this?

    • Request to add the IFLIX Apps

      Hi,  I really hope that LG WebOS can add on the IFLIX apps ( http://iflix.com ) for a user in Asia (especially Malaysia) and the Middle East Country. I very sure it will boost up the LG tv market and sell. Thank you.
