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,

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.

      I've tried all three methods to connect an account to my TV. With the thinQ app, when I press the link button, it tells me it was unable to link the account. With the web browser option, it spins indefinitely while verifying login info. With the remote login, it pops up with an error about a temporary server issue.
      I've already done a software update which didn't help. I've also tried creating a new account using the TV and that had the same results.
      Any ideas on how to resolve this?

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      Sling TV is my default app on my LG TV.   Everything  was working fine until today.  Now when I hit the HOME button on the remote, the TV correctly returns to the HOME page, but then immediately re-launches Sling TV before I have an opportunity to select a different app (for example, Netflix).   This cycle repeats itself every time I enter HOME while in the Sling TV app.  The only way I can return to HOME without Sling TV automatically relaunching is to manually select a different input (e.g., HDMI one or LIVE Team), and then enter HOME and it will correctly stay in HOME until another app is selected.  I've tried resetting the TV  and I've tried deleting/adding Sling TV.  I have the latest WebOS update.  This may have started after downloading a recent Sling TV app?  Not sure.  Any suggestions appreciated.

      Hi LG
      When playing a Dolby Vision file encoded in MKV container format, the image is green/purple in colour. A quick googling says, this occurs due the default media player in WebOS not able to decode Dolby Vision MKV container files properly.
      When will this be fixed?

      I cannot get my iphone or ipad running ios 15.2.1 to work with my LG tv running webos 05.40.20.  Has anyone else seen this issue?  It used to work previously.
