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.

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.  ;)

      Updated my LG 55UK6360PTE to version 05.10.10 a few weeks ago. Few days after the update the television has trouble booting up, it gets stuck on the lg logo, then I have to switch the tv off by holding the power logo for a few seconds, then boot it up again only to find it getting stuck on the lg logo again, after repeating this process a few times I am finally able to boot the tv and proceed smoothly until I dare turn it off to face the whole issue all over again. Anyone else witnessed the same problems, is there anyway to downgrade the webos, tried the lgdtvupdater but it doesn't work, I guess it only works for models upto 2017. Correct me if I am wrong

      Hello everyone!
      I've just bought the new LG 55SM8600PLA with the latest update (AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support) and having many problems with it.
      The moment I plug the Ethernet cable on it, the TV starts spamming my entire network with Zeroconfi packages (captured with WireShark) resulting on all devices becoming unresponsive and slow.
      Here is screenshot of me pinging a wireless device with latency higher than 500ms, the moment I turn off the TV, ping goes to normal ~1ms (all cable):

      This happens with all devices on my local network. Using a couple of Asus RT-AC68U routers.
      Does this happens to any of you?
      Thanks!
