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?

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\

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.

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.  ;)

      Hello
      I own an OLED55C6 with latest updates, but I have a problem with the Photo & Video app. After stopping and restarting a movie, the previously selected language and subtitle settings are gone, and I have to select them again. Would be great if my language and subtitle choices would be persistent for each video, so if I re-watch the same movie after a while, it knows what language/subtitle I selected already. 
      Another  request would be to have the possibility to have the videos listed only with their names, without thumbnails.
      If I would have these 2 things, I could retire my raspberry pi
