LG TV change country code webos 1.x

Question

It's been noted on various forums that some LG TV owners can change the country code through the ez adjust service menu.

For example:

http://forums.webosnation.com/lg-webos-tv/328085-hulu-plus-netflix-overseas-lg-webos-tv.html

It appears the instructions covered in the link above are for webos 2.0 versions.

 

 

Changing country code has allowed many users to download apps not available in your own country.

 

A small amount of forums state that some LG TV owners cannot change the country code through the ez adjust service menu.

For example:

http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/687684-LG-WebOS-TV-s-cannot-change-region-to-get-Netflix-etc?p=15362222&viewfull=1#post15362222

Some of those owners report a different menu, most likely those users NOT using webos 2 and are using webos 1.0 or webos 1.5

 

In Australia on my TV I see -

7. Country Group
  Country Group Code 19
  Country Group AJ
  Country --

8. Area option
  Area code 263
  Wi-fi Frequency 7
  Lang Gr. ALL
  Teletext Lang Gr. W_EU
  I II Save On
  HDEV Off
  MONO Off
  Location 0
  Isolator 0

I found that the South African user posted that they had a similar menu:
http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/687684-LG-WebOS-TV-s-cannot-change-region-to-get-Netflix-etc?p=15362222&viewfull=1#post15362222

 

Comparison between Australian and South African users posting about the issue -

Area Option

Area Code -

South Africa: 259
Australia: 263

Wi-fi frequency -

South Africa: 3
Australia: 7


I note that the difference between the Area Code between the two countries (263-259) equals 4.
Further, the difference between the Wi-fi frequency between the two countries (7-3) equals 4.

I suspect that it is possible to change the country and thereby download apps from another country.
I think the USA Area code is 02.

 

Anyone figured out how?

 

Perhaps posting up your Country Group Code and Area Code (IF you have webos 1.x) may be a step towards this process.

      I'm developing an app for LG WebOS, and at one point I load the content dynamically, ajax, and with it also appears the input for search. It turns out that even with the input focused, the keyboard does not appear. Is there a Javascript method to call the virtual keyboard?

      ok so im slowly going insane, just got a new tv and naturally i couldnt keep my fingers off the "update" button.
      before the update the HDR game mode was crisp and bright, after the update it so bloody dim some games are just... way too dark ?
       
      so i tried running a downgrade with lgdtvupdater and got everything to work but when its time to actually download the update to the tv it says that "the update cannot be applied".  everything in the logs are showing ok. but it just wont save to the tv.  it doesnt even start the download, altho i can clearly see in the logs the update is correct and the tv has given the "all clear" to the update server.
       
      am i missing something here ?
