OK, use temporary V8-T615T01-LF1V078,
as you flashed original firmware with C825 version.
V8-T615T01-LF1M103 has only 1 OTA update to M113 and has been stopped.
Btw,
you or me or anybody else need to found V8-T615T02 IMG file,
to flash back original R646 firmware (with Google TV) ,so far....no luck.

Edit:
V081 on the way........

Depressing news.
There is a big difference between GTV and RTV in terms of user interaction experience. I personally think that the former is better. After all, the RTV version used in TV boxes in recent years has no new experience.
Thank you, then we will look forward to the release of IMG together

I have tried the latest 081 firmware for the 65c825 and it has fixed the remote control microphone problem.

Because only OTAs could install .. IMG V267 could not be uploaded. So now I'm waiting for the OTA V272 ..
IMG update is different way to flash.
Not same as OTA ,by local update....

    Is same platform R51M.
    In Philippines, India and Brazil.... P725 and C725 are coming with R51MT05 (Google TV) firmware,out of box.
    Read more:

    Anyway, you can always flash back to R51MT02, with IMG file.
    (not valid for UK "K" models, because there is no IMG file)

    Edit:
    Taken from test V418 IMG....hardware support:

    Hi!

    I just recently bought a TCL 55C725 ( in Spain ), it came with R51M v246 installed. I've been having tons of problems, specially in Dolby vision and game modes where some sort of backlight auto dimming is on even if everything is off on the settings ( including the secret menu where both the eco mode and DBC are off ). After reading around, the only possibility that I have left ( as far as I know ) is too try to update the software. When I try to update through the network it says it's the latest update. When I go to the European website it points me to v256, but reading this post i can see there are plenty of newer versions. I'm new to updating manually my TV, although I'm confident I can do it.
    I want to ask: what's the latest, most stable and recommended update for my specific model (55C725) ?? v267?.. or??

    Many thanks in advance!!
    I am completely happy with v267 which I installed locally (also, not OTA) over v256 which was preinstalled in my 43C725. However, I am not using any sound passtrhu since I am using my tv without any external speakers or amplifier. Therefore I cannot tell you, if passthru works OK in v267. If you run into any problems, you can always try v256, v282 or those custom firmwares to which you can find a download link in this very forum...

    doesn't work on my model the img isn't verified
    Of course! Because this is firmware for another chassis. You say that you have 43s434 only now. This is 2020 model

    There are certain regions where OTA is not available for years & neither on TCL local support. AP region hasn't. NA & EU are lucky though where updates are available via OTA or local TCL has it on support page.

    Hello everybody. I recently bought the TCl 50C725 and I am satisfied (especially after the adjustments I found in this forum; I followed the previous model C715).
    For the Italian market there is no PVR and Timeshit; as you indicated, I would like to try to change the Project ID of the TV (currently 6446).
    Compared to what I found here on the forum, now the Project ID is with 4 digits instead of 3.
    Also in the list of TCL Project ID sheets (let me thank stasiof for the great work he does to the community) clearly I don't find my TV (too new) and I only find 3-digit Project ID.
    Do any of you have experience with the Project IDs of the new 2021 series (C725)?
    In the meantime, thank you all for the great job you guys do!
    For 2021 models Project ID is not released yet, so need the time to be released and change Project ID.
