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. ;)

      Hallo,
      i am trying to update my LG 55UF850T to webOS 3.x due to UHDTV and HDR compatibility. 
      Update via menu not possible. It shows 2.2.1 as the most current version.
      I downloaded 3.x via the website and copied it to a USB stick as mentioned in the guideline.
      Now the problem: USB stick is recognized as a Smart Share device but the firmware and folder do not trigger the update process.
       
      Question: is there a  technical guideline on how to proceed, e.g. Via the hidden Support menu? Any other ideas or procedures that I can trigger?
      please advice.

      Dear all,
      Have my 2 month old LG E6 connected to my amp using ARC via HDMI and i used that to send the audio from Amazon/Netflix/Youtube apps on the TV back to my amp.
      The audio is fine for everything but YouTube, which is out of sync.
      I've tried using the audio sync adjustment on the TV but can't get it right despite the adjustment.
      I've heard others on other forums complain of the same issue with this app.
      Is there somewhere I can raise an issue with LG for this problem?
      I wonder how often the youtube WebOS app is updated, maybe a new one is due soon?
       
      Thanks all!

      UPDATING YOUR FIRMWARE
       
      The firmware that powers your LG Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with webOS should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
      Watch this quick video to learn more. Or follow the easy steps below to get started.
       
       
      HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE?
      Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
      HOW DO I CHECK FOR, AND DOWNLOAD, AVAILABLE FIRMWARE UPDATES?
      Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
      Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:

      ONCE YOUR TV HAS A WIRED CONNECTION, DO THE FOLLOWING:
      Press the MENU Click SYSTEM SETTINGS Then ABOUT Then SYSTEM UPDATES You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically. FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG ULTRA HD 4K SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.

      I have had my 55" 4k tv for just over a year now and am finding that it plays less and less MP4 files. I believe it may be because they are h265 files. Is it really hard to update the TV. If I had known that it will not play recent files I would have considered buying a different TV. It also seems to have a problem playing some MKV files as well.
