Screen brightness low after upgrade
I read your warning, but still followed the steps mentioned to upgrade my Videocon smart tv hoping to get latest version and remove bloatware. I was successfull in both, however my TV screen is dim now. Even if I change brightness and backlight to 100, it does not look like what it used to before upgrading. Any suggestion ? Any latest packages available which would resolve this issue. I am also happy to rollback to my original package if that is possible. Eagerly waiting for a reply.
Thanks.

My VIDEOCON Smart Tv (DDBVKV50FH18XAH) was connected to BOSE sound bar through HDMI ARC and was working good. But due to my own mistake and experiment I happened to click the CLEAR option by entering in service menu. I think I have CLEARED EEPROM. Since then the HDMI ARC is not working. Other functions of the TV is working normal. I managed to get the software of the TV which is of 450MB (approx). Now my concern is if I update through the procedures will it damage the TV and stop working.
