This is missing something because no. 11 does nothing.

 

After Check For Updates from #10 you must accept first firmware TV installation by clicking Install at message prompt on the screen - this is #11.

I checked it one more time on my TV before creating this topic.

Please make sure that you everything did correctly.

 

BTW What is your TV model, webOS version and software?

1. Worked like a dream for me downgraded to 3.23.13

2. Rebboted now upgrading via manual update.

3. Upgraded to 4.30.16

4. Reboot and tv has found update via automatic update which is in progress

5. Udpate 5.00.04 installed

Straight forward and worked without issue.

Thank you Simon.

Check you TV model in LgDTVUpDater\htdocs\in_dump.txt 

 
<MODEL_NM>HE_DTV_WT1H_AFAAABAA</MODEL_NM>
 
then find the model tv file in LgDTVUpDater\TV series and copy it to LgDTVUpDater\htdocs\

Are you sure? It's not working like that...

Yes. The TV searches for that file and then checks its content. Try it yourself, erase dump file, start batch files, check for update on tv and look into dump file for tv model. Delete the file which has the same name of your tv model and try to update, it should not work.

I don't think you was right in this case.

Please read instruction and look at David's post.

 

I need to update LgDTVupdater for higher models.

Thank you SIMON, you saved my 49UB850V, i used your tut to downgrade from 5.00.04, and worked like a charme

 

Nice to know that it works for others, though regretting that not for everyone will. 

Maybe next update will be better for your TV. Meanwhile, thank you for your opinion and I wish you to make it happen.  ;)

Hi santosh, In Poland it is now ~ 3H00AM and I have to get some rest, but when I come back to life I will prepare an update to include TV models that are not available for now.  ;)

      Unable to exit SlingTV app.  App stays open when exiting WebOS and is open when re-entering WebOS after power down. Any suggestions?

      When we feature a new root method it’s typically for a smartphone. If it’s not a smartphone then it could be a tablet, smartwatch, or an Android TV set-top box. However, more and more devices are starting to become “smart,” which essentially means they have some sort of extra software feature that previously wasn’t possible. This could be a light bulb that can be controlled by our smartphone or a TV that has applications you can install.

      Hi guys
      First of all, I want to warn you that perhaps they read a lousy English, this is what came out of the Google XD translator, I do not speak English, but I hope they can understand me and give me their help.
      I have a LG 42LB6500-UM TV that apparently has a problem with the Firmware, since I bought it I had automatic updates configured, so it was updated several times until arriving at the mysterious Firmware 05.00.15. Why mysterious? Because according to the support page of LG this software is not in the compatible history with the model of my TV. Here the problem began.
      Since then I can not update the Firmware in any way, online it marks me an error "error in the decryption of the data ...", and when I try it for usb simply nothing happens. I'm stuck in version 05.00.15, but that's not the biggest problem.
      From that moment I can not access the content that HDCP requires, that is, netflix, cinepolis Klic, Prime Video, etc. Yes, it allows me to play YouTube. If I turn on the HDCP in the configuration of my PS4, the screen turns blue. An error in HDCP appears in the InStart menu.
      Can you think of an idea to solve this problem?
      Is it possible to delete the firmware and install a new one in a different way to the traditional one (online and usb)?
      I am 3 years old with this problem, and the LG technical support staff has only told me that I should change the Mainboard, that is very expensive, and the Mainboard of my TV is in excellent condition, it is a software problem.
      LG 42LB6500
      Firmware: 05.00.15
      Serial number: 406RMEN7R340
      WebOs TV version: 1.4.0-2507 (afro-ashley)
      regards
