Software Upgrade Via USB from 3.3.4 to 5.5.8  55UH652V

Question

Hi Team,

I have 2 LG smart TV's the one in question is a 

link hidden, please login to view
.
This TV is around 3 years old and on Software 3.3.4. All is working fine currently.

The reason for this question is due to purchasing an Amazon Alexa. I only realized after the fact my TV was WEBOS and not ThinQ AI..
Now if I search for an update "over the air" I get a message saying I am currently up to date.

My first question is if I am on Software 3.3.4 will it only search for patches of that version? It will not upgrade to a completely new release (4.0) by itself as It does say it is up to date currently?
My TV has (TF) at the end of the model designation but LG seems to list generically for that model, Is this just a regional version? 

They also provide a software file to upgrade to 5.5.8, Will this work on my TF model via USB? What format do I need? FAT32 or NTFS?

Cheers

May have just answered my own question.
I see the firmware on the TV is 5.5.8 and the webOS is 3.4.4..... I downloaded the Firmware 5.5.8 and that would also include the same webOS 3.3.4 I assume.

Ah well.

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!

      Hi all!
       
       
      I have a LG 42LB630V, with the latest firmware installed.
       
      I want to know if it is possible to change the audio language, for a mkv file that has more than an audio language and how to add external subtitles. Those embeded in mkv files are running ok.
       
      Thank you, 
      Cipria
