42LB652T NEW FIRMWARE AVAILABLE !!

14 posts in this topic

Hi to all who was waiting for some news/updates from LG for this model of TV.

 

The new firmware was added three days ago. link to firm: http://www.lg.com/za/support-product/lg-42LB652T

Difference between before and after in software/OS version.

 

Before

After

post-3526-0-14575300-1428739679_thumb.jpg

 

 

 

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.

      Just bought 43UH7500 last week. It comes with webOS 3.0
      Can it have an update to webOS 3.5 like the model in 2017?
      Customer loyalty will be enhanced if the manufacturer provides such after sales service.

      I recently bought  LG webos TV LH600v  and it's really slow and I updated the firmware but it's still very slow and annoying. Is there any solution at least for the TV menu itself (browsing is much worse).  
    • By Fernando Custodio de Macedo
      I have a problem in my LG 55UF8500
      When I watch TV, the imagem is ok. But when I open the Smartv menu,  the frames become distorted.
      Has anyone had this problem and should help me?
      I tryed a donwgrade with  Simon's LgDTVUpDater , but doesn't work. I think what my television has a Brazilian or Latin American  firmware and don't recognizes  in this software.
      Ps. I did the fatory reset, but the problem persist
