Nice joke.

Sorry, but it's only 1.0 webOS version upgraded to 1.4.

UPGRADE 1.X to 2.0 IS NOT POSSIBLE.

Everything is possible, just that someone needs to understand the hardware and port the open source to that hardware. Without the gerber file will make the work super tough.

One question to ask is what is the motivation ?

As long as there is CPU, mmu, any os can be executed. Like android, WebOS is still Linux base.

Anyway, it needs an army to do that. There is no motivation for hobbyist to do that.

MediaTek is making sure that the latest chip offers support for Android, WebOS (used by LG), while providing room for Panasonic to tweak it for their upcoming TVs based on Amazon's FireTV OS, according to CK Peng, marketing director for MediaTek's home entertainment business unit.

    • Question: webos crashes

      Hi, Purchased my first LG TV yesterday. The product has both freeview and freesat and I am using both. Updates the WebOs to latest version and then went through and setup the Apps I use here in the UK. Netflix, BBC, ITV, 4 and 5 During the setup had to update all the apps. Had annoying 'memory full' crashes during this whole process and also while watch some Netflix later.   Questions: Have I bought a dog? Is running Freeview and Freesat at the same time too much for the TV? Can the memory inside the TV be expanded?     Thanks in advance. :-)

    • Question: Install the correct firmware on my TV

      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

    • Add Fox+ in the LG Content Store/ webOS

      Can you please make Fox+ available to the LG content store/ webOS. I have a LG 43UJ630V which is a 2017 model and I can't find it on their content store. I subscribed to Fox+ considering I could watch it on a big screen and not only on smart phone. I am very much disappointed that this limits me from watching it on my UHD TV. Subscription is wasted without seeing it on my big screens. We are now in 2019 guys! We are not moving backwards. Let us move forward and make Fox+ available to all subscribers.
