Install the correct firmware on my TV

Question

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

I tried downgrade firmware, but the same errors appear.

I tried a different way, I saw a video on YouTube with a very similar procedure, but including the firmware you want to install inside the "htdocs" folder, but it did not work either.

This is only my experience, but I’m in the US and after doing business in China I was targeted an APT (Advanced Persistent Threat). A colleague found a bad SSL cert on my home office network and traced it to the LG OLEF65B6P—not surprising since 2014 China PLA has rooted every Apple device and PC in my home, trying to steal more intellectual property. (And by the way this was a colleague with one of our armed forces cyberdefense team who deals with China State Sponsored Attacks daily; and I had some experience in this area). Anyway, if in the unlikely event you are at risk of something like this due to your residence, employment or knowledge, you can forget LG being any help as they failed to even grasp the threat, let alone help me with a solution.To make a long story short... 

What the Chinese were doing was rooting the TV and locking it into a future nonexistent firmware version, thus making it impervious to overwriting or rollback (since we couldnt rollback the LG firmware per LG). By way of disclaimer, if you’re not handy with IT or firmware of this type, I’d find someone who is to avoid turning your TV into home decor, but I did a search on how to access the technician service menu, accessed and then pushed a hard reset or reflash which eventually worked. And while I was behind an enterprise-level firewall (forget the consumer AV products with state sponsored threats) not much more I could do to bolster network security to prevent this from reoccurring other than locking down what I could via the TV access codes and restoring TV back to factory settings often, and hoping companies like LG (and consumers) put as much thought into security as features. By the way, your English is as good or better than many in the U.S. Good luck!

      When you update your LG TV firmware, you’re making the most of your Smart TV and ensuring that you have all the latest features available. Just like software on your computer, it needs to be updated from time to time for peak performance. So, how do you update your firmware for your LG Smart TV with webOS 3.0? This guide will walk you through it and have you finished in no time. After you’re done watching the video, grab your remote, push the Settings button and begin. You can watch the progress on the screen and the TV will reboot itself after it’s done. You can even choose to automatically update your firmware in the future without having to go through the process each time.

      Hi.
      I am having some issues with wifi connectivity on my TV.
      Anything in the 1 tier of 5ghz channels I get proper speeds.
      But anything in the tier 2 or 3 gives me awful speeds.
      I have tested with multiple routers and accesspoints and the problem is the same on all of them.
      The only channels on the 5ghz band that give good speeds are tier 1 (34-64)
      Any firmware update planned ?

      Hello, Since the recent update 04.70.85, my TV's internal speakers are not working. Is it possible to downgrade firmware? If yes, Can Some body share download link of previous firmware for above mentioned model (UAE). Or is there any way to re-flash existing firmware?
      Thanks in advance

      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 ?
