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.

      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.
