Hacking the LG 60UH770T - 3rd party apps / upgrades etc...?

Question

Howdy,

 

Bought myself an LG 60UH770T-HT (in Australia) and love it.

It's the first 'smart' TV I've seen where the OS doesn't make me want to make it un-smart, Android on TVs is just awful in my experience.

 

Is running LG Software version 3.17.20 at present and Web OS 3.1.2-1217 (dreadlocks-denali).

 

I'm really keen to find out if I can install 3rd party apps such as a replacement web browser for the very limited one that came installed with the TV etc....

 

Things I'd like to do / find out if I can do:

  • Upgrade the inbuilt hard drive to a larger SSD.
  • Install a better web browser (one that's updated, security patched, allows downloads etc...).
  • See if I can enable any more advanced settings.
  • Customise the interface layout.
  • Train the smart remote to the IR codes for my QUAD Vena integrated amp.
    • I contacted LG via twitter and they weren't at all helpful, essentially blew me off to talk over the phone then changed that to logging something with the Australian only website, they didn't even respond when I said that the QUAD was a UK brand and widely used all over the world, they made it pretty clear they didn't care.
    • Twitter convo started here: https://twitter.com/s_mcleod/status/756353546245672961
    • Moved to a DM convo LG support blowing me off.pdf
  • Contribute back any learning / information I find out to help others.
  • Mirror my iPhone directly to the TV, I'm hoping there's an Airplay receiver app out there somewhere.
  • Add Getflix, or a quick way to switch between DNS servers to the UI.

 

And probably a lot more.

      Hello all, I'm new to the forum, this question might be a silly one but oh well, so I bought a Lg  OLED65E7P, I don't use the remote often but I do use the webOS LG TV PLUS remote app on my apple iPhone x, on the app remote there's no option to turn on the tv, but there is an option to turn it off, has anyone experienced this as well? it makes it a little inconvenient to always have to turn on the tv via Apple TV 4k trigger, is there a way I can turn on the tv from the lg WebOS remote app?

      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 ?

      Hi,
      I have to say, YES I'm using TrueMotion and YES I'm lucky with that fact :-)
       
      But "time after time" this setting is reverted to off. I have to set for live-TV, for Netflix, for Amazon-Prime over and over again...
      Is there a solution to set every channel, every app to always on?!
       
      TV is 55uj6309 with webOS 04.70.45
