And 3.0 will not be compatible with 2015 tv's, 4.0 not compatible with 2016, etc, etc....who will want to buy an LG branded TV?? Please think about it!

 

For all who bougth a 2014 LG tv, there will be updates on 1.x versions?

I really hope it's a joke/mistake, and LG should provide some official statement very soon to clarify... If they go in this direction, it will be my last LG device ever...

There seems to be a common theme here and lets hope LG are listening to their customers who spent good money on their TV's.  Its really bad customer service to turn a one year old product into a legacy/obsolete machine

I don't care what version number they stick on webos as long as they keep doing big fixes and performance updates and the AppStore is kept up to date. A big if!

Lg will have to give webos 2.0 update for 2014 tv's. Or else there is shame on "Lg Software Developers" as like apple give the software updates to their older handsets too.

Dear Admins of this forum .. 

 

is this forum - somehow - monitored by LG? does LG knows anything about this thread?

 

because although these are just 34 angry comments of some twenty-ish owner of LG Hardware, but any reasonable person can imagine the number of customers those have bought the 2014 version of LG Smart TVs with WebOS 1.x that will be not upgraded to 2.0 version and how could they be mad about this

 

with all respect to the Admins .. and their efforts .. but I didn't feel the presence of LG Customer Support anywhere .. every post I've read is either by an admin who replies with his own personnel experience or another owner for a LG Hardware

No this is not affiliated with LG support, it's a webos user to user support and fan forum. Does LG monitor this forum? I have no idea but I would if I was them since there is a lot of customer feedback.

All, just read those lines, and it seems it's still unclear to LG whether they'll provide such an update for all 2014 models, I already opened a ticket at their support in France, got no feedback yet, but I think you should all put the most pressure you can, else we can forget it...

Here are the lines I mentioned : http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/existing-webos-tvs-might-not-be-webos-2-0-upgradable

 

Cheers,

Yes, if WebOS 2.0 goes out only for 2015 models, then all of us were fooled by LG. But it's too hard for me to believe in such situation. I'll keep myself optimist...

Can you make tutorial, or just basic steps how to make it.

 

Where to download webOS 2.0 firmware, how to setup appach, and how to set TV to find update on that server?

 

Thanks.

      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.
       
      Source: http://mashable.com/2014/12/17/lg-webos-smart-tvs/
       
       
      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.
