Mark:

 

Is there an NZ source for the updates ?  I looked at the Australian link but my TV is running a version higher than what is available.

 

Just curious what is current.

 

 

As far as i know there is only link for aust site as above. I was on version 373 nougat 7 android and updated to android 8 oreo version 535 now.

Well, damn! My 55C2US just updated itself to '8.0.0' so I guess that's Android 8.

 

The menus are different, but everything seems to work the same, except...

 

FAST START doesn't work!

 

Is it possible to downgrade? And if so, how to prevent another automatic update?

Hi, just got one of these tvs,

 

 

 

just wondering if anyone has got the tv to go into standby via hdmi cec,

 

 

 

example,   turn off hdmi device, it turns hdmi device and tv into standby.

 

 

 

i have only been able to standby the tv via the tv's own remote.

 

 

 

cheers

 

steve.

Don't think it would be beta version as myself and few others recieved it ota at that same time and also Australia recieved V534 then also but was a bit problematic for them. Where was that update information information posted for New Zealand model only?

Think this is only beta version and don't think i would want to risk this after reading reports on whirlpool forums and tcl putting up then taking down and putting back up with warning message(beta version for HDR resolution do not distribute with out Level 3 permission). Link to whirlpool forums with info regarding this update,

hello,

 

i also have bought TCL 55C2US TV, all the time it is connedted to internet

 

after 1 year it got stuck. only the TCL logo is to be shown.

 

so, one of my friend told me to update the firmware with pen drive. 

 

i have also tried to do the same process but it gets fail.

 

(when i copy this file to FAT32 formated pendrive. it dose not recognize the update file,

 

is it cox of the name, "Update_Sign" ? do i have to rename it)

 

 

 

and tried another OS and it goes until it shows the android loading state but still it dose open. 

 

can you please help me get a good firmware for 55C2US.

 

is it not working because already the os is corrupted,

 

if so what shoud i do?

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

 

 

toejam316:

 

Speak of the devil, TCL got back to me with the firmware image for C2 and X2s for Android N.

 

Here's the email quoted.

 

 

Thank you for contacting TCL customer support.

 

We already released the update for Android N-

 

Please follow these steps to do software update

 

 

 

Android N software- V364

 

 

 

  • Download the  file and copy  into an empty USB device on a fat 32 format
  • Please highlight the link (don’t click) then paste the link on the search bar then press enter and you will can download the software from there.

 

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mmw0ur9eneuwbcy/Update_sign.pkg?dl=0

 

 

 

     

  1. Turn off the TV (mains power – unplug it from the power point /socket)
  2. Insert USB stick with the correct software (if there’s a service port, make sure to plug it there)
  3. Press and hold the power button on the TV (not remote)
  4. Turn on mains power to the TV (while keeping the power button pressed)
  5. After about ten seconds, you will see the upgrade notification on the TV, as soon as you     see this, release the power button.

 

 

 

The TV will now update. Do not disconnect or press any buttons, until you see the google welcome page. The update is now done.

 

 

 

After software update please do this reset

 

 

 

  • Press settings button
  • Select picture
  • go to advance settings
  • Highlight contrast
  • Press 9-7-3-5 as quick as you can
  • Factory settings will come up- Select RESET SHOP and press right arrow key

 

 

TV will turn off- turn it back on and do the initial set up
