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.

      I just purchased a 49UJ7700 TV, and updated it to the latest firmware via flash drive (4.70.30). However, after do so, I lost the following apps:
      HBO GO Science GO Showtimetime Anytime Not exactly "lost," but they just disappeared from the LG Content Store.
      I have seen the firmware downgrade instructions elsewhere in the forum, but unfortunately LG does not supply download links for previous firmware revisions.
      Where can I download version 4.70.07?
      Has anybody else had this problem?
