For download V383 ,don't use Mac PC (or handphone) ,must be Windows based PC and you will get proper zip file.Well this is a very helpful thread
Just got one of these TVs for a cheap shed build.
Stasiof thanks for all the information. Can I ask of the latest FW file (383) should be a .Jar file extension as that's all that downloads. Will I need to unarchive the .zip file from the .jar basically?

Hello! I hope you're having a good day!This is a list of update packages and installation images for TCL ES560/S6500/S5300, chassis RT41.
If you're unsure whether your TCL TV is chassis RT41 or not, you may check it in Settings > About > Contact us menu. If your Software version starts with V8-R41KT01-LF1, you may proceed with the installation. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A RT41 CHASSIS, THE INSTALLATION WILL FAIL.
There are two kinds of packages for this TV, download mode packages and Android OTA packages. Download mode packages will erase your data, while Android OTA packages will keep your data.
Android OTA packages:
After downloading the package, please, do read the manual included (especially if you want to update to Android 9).
Download mode packages:
Version 250. (Downgraded kernel.)
Rooted download mode packages:
These packages have an Update.img file. Copy the image file to the root of your USB drive, plug the USB drive into the TV, then boot the TV into download mode.
How do I boot into download mode?
1) Hold the power button on the remote control until the power off menu is shown.
2) Select Yes to turn off the TV.
3) When the power LED turns off, press and hold the TV's power button.
4) When the power LED begins to blink, release the power button.
Another way to boot into download mode is to unplug the TV's power cord, then hold the TV's power button while plugging the power cord back. When the power LED begins to blink, release the power button.
The TV should boot into download mode and begin the installation process. DO NOT POWER OFF THE TV DURING THE INSTALLATION PROCESS!
