New TCL T221T01 Update available in V108.
Hello,

I successfully updated, thank you! :)
I have a question though, are you familiar with any method to root the TV or use it successfully as a kiosk? Applications don't start automatically on boot and that prevents it from being any good for a kiosk. I could replace the video that starts in Store Mode, that would work but I need root for it. I tried patching the kernel inside the ZIP with Magisk and replacing it but it gets caught by verification during flashing, even in Download Mode... :(

    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:
    Version 190.
    Version 234.
    Version 241.
    Version 272.
    Version 305.
    Version 353.
    Version 360.
    Version 364.
    Version 367.
    After downloading the package, please, do read the manual included (especially if you want to update to Android 9).

    Download mode packages:
    Version 064.
    Version 076.
    Version 080.
    Version 114.
    Version 117.
    Version 133.
    Version 138.
    Version 139.
    Version 144.
    Version 155.
    Version 180.
    Version 216.
    Version 226.
    Version 229.
    Version 234.
    Version 241.
    Version 242.
    Version 243.
    Version 245.
    Version 250. (Downgraded kernel.)
    Version 255.
    Version 257.
    Version 272.
    Version 284.
    Version 292.
    Version 305.
    Version 343.
    Version 364.
    Rooted download mode packages:
    Version 289.
    Version 353.
    Version 361.
    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!

    Replying to myself. I installed the version V8-R41KT01-LFIV369 build 009199 mentioned here. Much better than than the one which came originally with the TV. Also nice is that you now have the option to format an USB drive as internal storage which I could do only with some adb commands before.

    Speed is indeed much better than I had with 336. Also now some apps which didn't work properly now are working fine (especially VPN's). It's a pitty that these models won't receive the Google TV upgrade. I have it on another model, much better and with a nice speed increase.

    Were you able to do it? I have a rca that is the same too. Tell me about your experience, please, thank you!

    I tried both the OTA and the full firmware install and both installed without a single issue, even the TV started with the "Hitachi" logo and everything so it went just like an official update, the latest firmware (v255) that some user posted here didn't gave me any issues at all, I could even say that it runs better than the original, and they improved some image settings related options, so go for it, if the chasis model number match shouldn't be a problem then, the system checks anyway if the firmware it's valid for installation.
