Hello.. I want to install latest webos system version to my tv .. I think rooting it may help .. is there any guide or steps to follow to do that ?
Also I want to be able to rollback to my current version if the install with root failed due to drivers for example.
Sometimes the Showtime and the Starz apps. will not play videos. The little loading icon just twirls. A couple days later they might work fine. I have tried signing out, deleting the app, reloading it from the LG Store, then signing back in, but it doesn’t solve the problem. Broadband speed tests are above 110 MB.
Because it happens with both apps, it seems it could be some sort of an LG handshake or verification problem.
Casting Showtime and Starz movies to my LG 43UM6910PUA 4K UHD TV from the corresponding app on my iPhone works fine but it ties up the phone.
Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?

I have an LG WebOS TV UH7650 with software version 05.30.90 that is set for automatic updates. I purchased a movie via Amazon last night. Last night, I used my iPad to start the movie just to confirm it would launch, which it did on the iPad. Today I was able to use myLG TV to log onto my email, open my order receipt from Amazon and open the page on www.amazon.com that shows my purchase. When I click the “Continue Watching” button, I get a “Google Chrome Update Required” message. I read one or two posts in this forum that say the problem doesn’t reside in the TV’s software or firmware, rather that whatever service is trying to communicate with the TV is not compatible with WebOS and that users whose TVs are in this situation need to gently urge the service provider to make their service compatible with WebOS,
it is a bit hard to imagine that a giant like Amazon is not making their service compatible with WebOS. The references to “Prime” in the error message really make it seem like Amazon is the party attempting to serve the movie. The complete message says,
Google Chrome Update Required
A later version of Google Chrome is required for Prime Video. To update, click the Chrome menu (three horizontal stripes) on the browser toolbar, click About Google Chrome, and then click Relaunch.
For more information, please see Prime Video system requirements.
Technology is generally not too kind to me. Does anybody have any ideas how I can resolve this?
